STMicroelectronics announced the availability of ST20 J-Engine, a highly optimized Java Virtual Machine (JVM) for the ST20 CPU, based on the Sun Java Connected Device Configuration HotSpot Implementation software.

Java technology is appearing in an increasing number of consumer media platforms, from Digital Video Broadcast's Multimedia Home Platform (DVB-MHP) and CableLab's OpenCable Application Platform (OCAP) specifications to IP STBs and Blu-ray Disc optical media players, said ST. Developed specifically for the STi5100 and STi5105 STB decoders, the ST20 J-Engine offers consumer electronics manufacturers, middleware vendors and third party developers an off-the-shelf solution to accelerate existing Java technology-based solutions or to develop new value-added products.

The ST20 J-Engine package includes a full implementation of the Personal Basis Profile and Foundation Profile technologies in addition to the Sun Java CDC HotSpot Implementation software. The implementation runs under the OS20 OS and is fully integrated with ST's STAPI driver suite. Plug-ins are provided to allow the Eclipse Java Development Environment to be used to debug applications written in the Java programming language that run on the target system.

"We are delighted that this collaboration between Sun and ST has produced a robust, high-performance JVM software implementation," said Eric Chu, senior director of mobile and embedded business and marketing, Sun Microsystems. "Immediate availability of this technology will continue to drive the successful adoption of Java technology in consumer markets."
