PSINAPTIC INC. ANNOUNCES THE INTEGRATION OF CMATOS WITH THE DALLAS SEMICONDUCTOR TINI® PLATFORM

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA - PsiNaptic Inc. announces the integration of CMatos with Dallas Semiconductor's Tiny InterNet Interfaces (TINI) platform.

CMatos - an extension of JMatos® for non-Java devices enables very small, embedded processors to offer Java-based services. This opens the door for the multitude of computing embedded devices that are present in the environment to participate in the next era of autonomous, machine-to-machine communications. With CMatos, a very small processor can offer information and software services to any computing device that acts as a Jini client. For example, CMatos could be utilized to enable a single-chip sensor or controller to offer its own Java service to a PDA or a cell phone running a simple Jini client application. The service could be anything from a simple driver to a full application complete with a Graphical User Interface. With a total system memory footprint of less than 60 kilobytes (not including offered services), CMatos complements PsiNaptic's JMatos.

�CMatos opens up a whole new aspect of embedded design for the DS80C400 networked microcontroller,� says Clayton Ware, Business Manager at Dallas Semiconductor Microcontroller unit. �CMatos enables the DS80C400 to be a network access point for Jini enabled devices giving everything from small sensors and actuators to factory automation equipment and legacy hardware the ability to spontaneously join a network, and form ad hoc network federations in which information and services can be freely and easily exchanged.�

CMatos and JMatos are a significant step forward in the development of protocols that enable the creation of self-administered, resilient networks of embedded devices. True to the Jini Technology vision, devices utilizing CMatos and JMatos in such networks could freely and easily exchange information and services without the need for human interaction. JMatos will allow devices to have their own self-contained Jini lookup service, and offer its intrinsic services and information to other Jini clients independent of wider area network availability. CMatos will propagate this capability down to very small embedded devices.

�CMatos delivers the vision of very small embedded processors as intelligent devices joining and forming networks, and performing tasks autonomously, in a changing and mobile environment,� says Aaron Dagan President and CEO of PsiNaptic. �With this development, OEM providers and system integrators have the tools to deliver true end-to-end solutions, from sensors through to enterprise-level applications in a consistent, efficient and cost effective way. We are delighted with our continued co-operation with Dallas Semiconductor in bringing effective solutions to networking of embedded devices.�
