Fujitsu Microelectronics announces it will use DCT's Java architecture in future multimedia products
New architecture delivers high-performance Java on standard RISC/ARC
cores, removes many Java-related bottlenecks, eases integration with existing
application and system code
Frankfurt, Germany & London, England, September 28, 2001 --- Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) Frankfurt, and Digital Communication Technologies (DCT) London, have jointly developed a processing architecture which delivers world leading Java performance in RISC/ARC-based ASIC/ASSP designs.
Using a combination of Fujitsu's renowned technology and ASIC expertise, and a patented hardware and software architecture from DCT, the companies have jointly developed a multimedia processor that includes an ARC core. The design will be available shortly in volume quantities as a Fujitsu ASSP.
Johannes Richter, Multimedia Business Unit Director at Fujitsu commented "DCTs fresh approach brings a new dimension to running Java in embedded RISC/ARC designs and promises to accelerate Java uptake. Working together with DCT looks set to be a very beneficial relationship for both parties."
Chris Turner, COO of DCT confirmed "This new collaboration with Fujitsu is very exciting. FME's wide technology portfolio, in addition to its European and world-wide sales support, and of course the fabrication facilities and process quality, have added just the right qualities for bringing the new solution to market. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership with Fujitsu during which both companies will produce a range of standard parts based on this and other DCT architectures."
This innovative solution is ideal for home and automotive multimedia applications, including DVB, MHP, HAVi. It will be also be available through Fujitsus ASIC libraries for other applications such as networking, metering, home video and sound appliances and mobile communications, during the first half of FY2002.
Technical support will be provided by DCT design and application engineers,
FME application engineers, and contracted world-wide design houses.
