MICROWARE, ESPIAL IN ALLIANCE FOR CONSUMER DEVICES

By CBR Staff Writer

Microware Systems Corp, the Des Moines, Iowa-based real-time operating systems company, yesterday announced an alliance with Espial Group Inc whereby Microware will combine its real time operating system, OS-9, with Espial’s Java application development tools and components, Kalos and Portico. The resulting applications will be used in the manufacture of consumer devices, such as set-top boxes, smart phones and handheld computers, the companies said. Kalos is a set of graphical user interface (GUI) and application development tool environment and Portico is a suite of components comprising a browser, email and PIM (personal information manager) components. A spokesperson for Espial said coupling the tools with Microware’s PersonalJava provides crucial time savings to embedded Java developers. The spokesperson said he couldn’t yet comment on the exact nature of the alliance, other than to say the two companies would combine, and market, their software as one bundle from here on in.
