PSINAPTIC Inc. Announces the integration of CMatos with CSR BlueCore2™ Bluetooth® chip

CALGARY, AB PsiNaptic Inc (TSX-VN : PST) the first company to implement standalone Jini™ Network Technology for embedded processors, announced today the availability of CMatos Jini Network Technology for CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) BlueCore2™ chip.

CMatos-BlueCore2 is a 32kbyte implementation of CMatos that executes on the BlueCore2 chip an all-CMOS, single-chip architecture. CMatos-BlueCore2 makes possible a whole new aspect of embedded design for the CSR BlueCore Bluetooth products. CMatos combined with BlueCore2 enables single chip embedded devices such as sensors and actuators, to have their own self-contained Jini lookup service, and offer their intrinsic services and attributes as a Java object to other Jini clients to execute, independent of wider area network availability. This combination of CMatos and BlueCore2 opens the door for the multitude of computing embedded devices to participate in autonomous, machine-to-machine communications based on an open standards platform.

The integration of CMatos with the BlueCore2 chip provides important benefits to developers:

  • Saves cost and time, by developing on a single chip for many embedded networked applications. The highly integrated BlueCore IC combines radio and baseband DSP with fully qualified Bluetooth protocol stack and an on chip RISC microcontroller, capable of hosting CMatos-BlueCore2 and applications.
  • CMatos-BlueCore2 utilizes the standard and ubiquitous TCP/IP network stack for communication.
  • Because CMatos-BlueCore2 can offer an API implementation as a Java byte code, the implementation can be downloaded and executed by a Jini client when needed. This simplifies application development for Bluetooth devices and future proofs applications that are no-longer dependent on profile specifications.
  • Jini applications are not restricted to the enterprise level, but can be developed and deployed across a broad range of platforms, from servers, PC's and laptops to PDA's, embedded sensors, control systems and appliances.
  • Developers can take advantage of leveraging standard Java and Jini building blocks as well as Jini technology?s ability to function reliably in dynamic network environment

CMatos is an implementation of the Jini Lookup Service and related protocols that enables very small-embedded non-Java processors to offer Java based services. CMatos extends the reach of Java into non-Java devices and enables legacy devices to become Jini Network capable. Fully Jini Network Technology compliant, CMatos less than 60kb footprint lookup and discovery protocol enables resource constrained devices, to interconnect and spontaneously offer services on a network to any computing device that acts as a Jini client. Even smaller versions of CMatos are available for devices that need to only offer intrinsic data and not register external services.
