Java SE 8 supports MIPS processor core
Now the embedded systems and IOT developers who are using Java program can use MIPS processor core based chips in their systems more confidently. Imagination Technologies announces the availability of Java SE 8 for the MIPS architecture. Imagination and Oracle are working together to enhance Java for embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) applications and optimize Java for the MIPS CPU architecture.
Java is preferred to program network and Internet based applications such as IOT devices. Now MIPS licensees can make use of most portable Java code for applications such as routers, wireless access points, residential gateways, next-generation consumer premises equipment (CPE), other networking equipment, mobile devices, IoT, embedded and more.
Georges Saab, vice president development, Java Platform at Oracle, says “The MIPS architecture is widely used in networking, embedded and other key markets. Java support for MIPS will enable application development on the many MIPS-based devices such as gateways and routers that are out there in the market, and will play a key role for emerging and future devices. Imagination and MicroDoc, who are working on MIPS platform ports, will provide the foundation for connected devices, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with both companies in support of MIPS.”
Tony King-Smith, EVP marketing, Imagination, says “As products such as gateways and routers increasingly incorporate more features, and as products of all types are increasingly connected, it’s vital that we enable key industry enablers like Java for MIPS CPUs and our other IP families. The large installed base of MIPS-based products can benefit from Java, and as MIPS continues to drive into the IoT and other areas, the opportunity continues to grow. We are delighted to continue our work with Oracle and its partners to deliver great Java performance and applications.”
Dan Artusi, VP & general manager, Lantiq – an Intel Company commented “This development is very exciting for Lantiq. We are pleased to be working closely with Oracle to enable Java on our MIPS-based chipsets for broadband access and home networking. These products already provide unprecedented levels of quality and advanced features. With Oracle Java on MIPS, our customers have access to an established platform to develop a range of exciting new applications for next-generation networks and the connected home.”
Imagination and partners to demonstrate Java SE 8 for MIPS at the upcoming Imagination Summit Silicon Valley. In addition, Jai Suri, director of product management at Oracle, will speak at the Summit. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara on Thursday, May 21st.
