Java Microcontroller Specialist Opens US Offices

Newark, CA, November 1, 2001 - - Today, the Java microcontroller vendor DCT opens its US base in Newark, CA. The new offices provide sales, marketing and applications engineering support resources located close to the design centres of many major electronic OEMs, and will be managed by Larry Lorden.

DCT is at the vanguard of the trend towards real-time Java, and has developed two processor architectures for embedded applications, the lean lightfoot core which requires around 25,000 gates, and bigfoot which speeds Java execution on RISC cores. Available now as IP, the technology is also being made available in application-specific microcontroller form, starting in mid 2002.

"Java is widely viewed as a catalyst for the successful exploitation of key market segments that are opening up for embedded system OEMs, but only if the language can be successfully adapted to run in constrained system environments", says Larry Lorden, of DCT, Inc., "DCT has solved that problem, and is establishing this centre - its first outside the UK - to provide local support for customers throughout NAFTA."

DCT's new offices are located at 39899 Balentine Drive, Suite #200, Newark, CA 94560, USA. Tel: 510 438-6861; email: DCT's design centre is located in London, UK.
