Gateway opened for IoT as Java SE 8 now supports MIPS CPUs

Latest release is a part of collaboration between Imagination and Oracle.

By CBR Staff Writer

Imagination Technologies has announced that Oracle‘s latest version of Java SE 8 will support the MIPS architecture, which is expected to enhance Java for embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

The latest release is a part of a collaboration between Imagination and Oracle, which aims at optimising Java for the MIPS CPU architecture.

MIPS is a simple, streamlined, and scalable RISC architecture available for licensing , and is widely supported by all processor architectures. Java forms the foundation for wide range of networked applications, and is becoming a vital part of IoT.

Imagination said that Java SE 8 for the MIPS32 architecture will be available from Q2 2015.

With the latest release, MIPS licensees will be able to use it for the development of several applications including wireless access points, consumer premises equipment (CPE), mobile devices, IoT, and residential gateways.

Oracle Java Platform vice president development Georges Saab said: "Java support for MIPS will enable application development on the many MIPS-based devices such as gateways and routers that are out there in the market, and will play a key role for emerging and future devices.

"Imagination and MicroDoc, who are working on MIPS platform ports, will provide the foundation for connected devices, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with both companies in support of MIPS."
