PSINAPTIC'S JMATOS™ SOFTWARE MAKES JINI™ TECHNOLOGY AVAILABLE ON DALLAS SEMICONDUCTOR'S TINI™ PLATFORM.

CALGARY, AB - PsiNaptic's JMatos™ software is now available for Dallas Semiconductor's Tiny InterNet Interface (TINI™), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Maxim Integrated products (NASD:MXIM).

PsiNaptic, an innovator in pervasive computing, is the first to make stand alone Jini™ technology available for any deeply embedded processor with a Javaª Virtual Machine (JVM). The TINI platform is a combination of a small but powerful chipset and a Java-programmable runtime environment.

Clayton Ware, TINI Product Manager, Dallas Semiconductor/Maxim, said, "With a footprint of less than 100 kilobytes, JMatos enables Jini technology to be deployed on TINI platforms giving everything from small sensors and actuators to factory automation equipment and legacy hardware the ability to spontaneously join a network and exchange information and services."

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

"JMatos software gives devices using the TINI platform a lot of autonomy," says Dr. Steven Knudsen, Senior Vice-President and Chief Technical Officer of PsiNaptic. "JMatos allows small, inexpensive, mobile devices to act for themselves and minimizes the effort and complexity of planning, configuring and managing a network based on deeply embedded processors."

A JMatos software development kit for TINI is currently available for download at www.psinaptic.com.
