Microware Systems Corporation (Nasdaq: MWAR), the leader in deployed virtual machine solutions for the embedded systems Embedded systems
Computer systems that cannot be programmed by the user because they are preprogrammed for a specific task and are buried within the equipment they serve. industry, today announced that it has licensed Hewlett-Packard Company's embedded virtual machine technology for use in a wide range of low-end devices.
"Microware's extensive leadership in delivering total virtual machine solutions to companies such as Hongkong Telecom and Nortel coupled with HP's new virtual machine technology, enables us to deliver even more options with more value to our customers," said Steve Bashada, vice president of marketing for Microware. "We're pleased to partner with HP as we take advantage of new opportunities in the embedded market Refers to custom-designed, computer-based devices and applications that perform a fixed set of tasks. It may refer to cellphones and other handhelds, network appliances (routers, access points, modems) and myriad consumer electronics products. ."
In March, HP announced the availability of its independently developed virtual machine technology and class libraries for the embedded systems market. The virtual machine is a tailored implementation compliant with the Java virtual machine A Java interpreter. The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is software that converts the Java intermediate language (bytecode) into machine language and executes it. The original JVM came from the JavaSoft division of Sun. specification intended for use in electronics devices or appliances and in other embedded systems.
"OS-9's secure, modular architecture complements our virtual machine technology with our small footprint, soft real-time features and custom configurability," says Dr. James R. Bell, General Manager, Hewlett-Packard Company. "We are pleased to partner with a leader in the embedded systems industry to help us give vendors the flexibility to optimize or tune their support for applications written in the Java(TM) programming language."
OS-9 is an open, secure, and modular real-time operating system (operating system) Real-Time Operating System - (RTOS) Any operating system where interrupts are guaranteed to be handled within a certain specified maximum time, thereby making it suitable for control of hardware in embedded systems and other time-critical applications. . Coupled with the new Microware Hawk IDE and Microware's proven expertise in providing exceptional performance and size implementations of embedded virtual machines, OS-9 provides a total solution for projects ranging from telecommunications and consumer products to traditional embedded applications.
Microware's implementation of HP's virtual machine will be available in summer, 1998.
