PsiNaptic's JMatos™ Software Makes Jini™ Network Technology Available for aJile Java™ 2 Platform Micro Edition (J2ME™ ) Processors

SAN JOSE, CA AND CALGARY, AB - PsiNaptic Inc., the leading developer of Jini technology for embedded processors, and aJile Systems Inc., a provider of low-power, Java technology based microprocessors and IP cores, announce the availability of JMatos™ on the aJile family of low-power, direct execution Java processors. This combined offer has passed the Jini™ network technology compatibility tests required by Sun Microsystems and extends Jini technology to J2ME/CLDC/MIDP resource-constrained devices.

"With a large portion of the projected embedded Java market to be based on a J2ME/CLDC platform, demonstrating JMatos on the aJile processor is a significant milestone for PsiNaptic," says Aaron Dagan, President and CEO of PsiNaptic. "aJile shares PsiNaptic's vision about the value of Jini technology on resource-constrained devices, which makes our combined technologies a powerful offering in this high growth market."

Danh Le Ngoc, Vice President of Marketing for aJile Systems Inc. adds, "Bundling JMatos with aJile processors, creates a powerful combination of direct JVM bytecode execution, direct multi-threading support, and fully-protected multiple JVM environments for the dynamic delivery of the Java-based mobile applications and services on a Jini technology enabled network."

JMatos is a significant step forward in the development of a protocol that enables resource-constrained devices to discover other devices and form ad hoc network federations in which information and services can be freely and easily exchanged by eliminating the need for RMI (Remote Method Invocation) and meeting Jini specifications.

JMatos on J2ME devices offers compelling application opportunities across various sectors, including mobile handsets, automotive telematics, medical device connectivity, security, industrial automation, residential gateways and others. Together aJile and PsiNaptic offer OEMs and application developers a tested and powerful platform with a very small footprint.

"Nedap has chosen to adopt Jini technology in its DWeb™ (device web) architecture. The advances in applying Jini technology in pervasive computing are of great interest in this respect. Nedap is looking forward to fully take advantage of this technology on the aJile low power, direct execution processor based on the Sun J2ME/CDC platform in the new generation of IP-based access control systems." said Albert Dercksen, Nedap Inc."

"I am delighted to see forward-looking Jini application developers such as Nedap recognize the adaptive networking value of Jini technology for resource constrained devices," says Jim Waldo, Distinguished Engineer, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "Allowing these inexpensive single-purpose devices to join a network without human intervention is an important capability of Jini technology and part of our compelling argument for the widespread deployment of Jini technology."
