London, UK  (Globe Newswire) – Imagination Technologies recently announced a broad collaboration with Oracle Corp. intended to enhance Java for embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) applications and optimise 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, embedded and more.

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

 

Nandini Ramani, Vice President, Java and Internet of Things, Oracle (pictured), commented: “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”.

 

Krishna Yarlagadda, President, Imagination, North America, said: “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”.
