EUROPEAN OPEN MICROSYSTEMS INITIATIVE STARTS WORK ON 20 COMPUTER PROJECTS

By CBR Staff Writer

After four years of discussion, the European Commission’s Open Microsystems Initiative is reported to have finally set out on its five-year mission to develop next generation microprocessor and software technology, which will use both new and existing architectures. Originally due to lift off last April with #200m funding, the Initiative now gets a reported #40 for some 20 projects that span a 100m transistor chip to binary interfaces that will enable software to run across Sparc, MIPS Computer Systems Inc R3000, Inmos Transputer and Acorn ARM RISC architectures – much like the Open Software Foundation’s Architecture-Neutral Distribution Format technology.
