Imagination and Oracle collaborate to enhance Java for embedded and the Internet of Things

Collaboration includes Java support for 32-bit and 64-bit MIPS architectures spanning embedded to networking and beyond


London,
UK – 22nd May, 2014 –
Imagination
Technologies
(IMG.L) announces a broad collaboration with
Oracle Corp. intended to enhance Java for embedded and Internet of Things (IoT)
applications and optimize Java for the MIPS CPU architecture.

Oracle and Imagination are
working together to bring the Oracle JDK (Java Development Kit), Oracle Java SE
Embedded, and other product support to MIPS32 and MIPS64 systems.

Java is the foundation for a
broad range of networked applications and is a global standard for developing
and delivering embedded, web-based and enterprise content, and applications.

With broad Java support for
MIPS32 and MIPS64 instruction set architectures (ISAs), MIPS licensees can make
use of this highly portable language and platform for a broad range of
applications including routers, wireless access points, residential gateways,
next-generation consumer premises equipment (CPE), other networking equipment,
mobile devices, Internet of Things (IoT), embedded and more.

In addition, Imagination and
Oracle will be working to improve Java on systems using Imagination’s PowerVR
graphics.

Says Nandini Ramani, vice
president, Java and Internet of Things, Oracle: “The MIPS architecture is
widely used in networking, embedded and other key markets. We are excited to
see the differentiated feature set that Imagination has laid out in its roadmap
for MIPS, and we are seeing increasing demand for optimized Java support for
MIPS. Through this new relationship with Imagination, we are strengthening the
presence of Java in a range of high-volume markets.”

Says Krishna Yarlagadda,
president, Imagination, North America: “Imagination is extremely committed to
growing the MIPS ecosystem, and we’re demonstrating that with new initiatives such
as the creation of the prpl open source foundation, and this exciting new
relationship with Oracle. Java has become one of the de facto standards for
many applications where our customers are creating some of the most exciting
next-generation products. We look forward to a long relationship with Oracle
focused on our broad range of IP.”
