SAN JOSE, USA: aJile Systems Inc., a company founded by the developers of the world’s first direct-execution Java technology microprocessor, is demonstrating its newest Java processor at the Embedded World Conference in Nuremberg, Germany.


The aJ-102 is a complete SoC (system-on-chip) processor, customized for real-time, remote applications. It is designed to add intelligence to next-generation smart infrastructure deployments, industrial processing applications and M2M (machine-to-machine) networks.

aJile Java processors are unlike any other CPU that runs Java code via interpreter or JIT software layers. As a Java direct-execution processor, the aJ-102 executes Java bytecode natively.

This eliminates the power-sapping and time-consuming step of translating Java programs into a second machine language, as required by ARM, Intel and all other processors. In addition, the aJ-102 comes complete with a RTOS (real-time operating system) written entirely in Java, eliminating the need for any third-party software integration or licensing expense.


The RTOS includes industry standard OSGi middleware, JME APIs, network stack, file system, security framework, a suite of software drivers, and real-time kernel, which dramatically simplify application development. The aJile RTOS executes real-time Java threading primitives to delivering superior performance for context switching and interrupt handling, a critical requirement for real-time operations.

With Java as its native language, the aJ-102 can be cost-effectively embedded into edge controllers, intelligent remote sensors and other M2M deployments that network directly to enterprise servers running Java applications. Application developers can create secure, re-usable software in a single language, Java, that operates on all platforms throughout the enterprise.

“The demand for networked SoC processors is being driven by the convergence of two powerful forces, the accelerating ubiquity of 2.5G, 3G, LAN, and 802.11 networks, coupled with the growing desire for built-in intelligence as society makes multi-billion dollar investments in smart infrastructure,” said Danh Le Ngoc, founder and V.P of marketing of aJile Systems.


“With a 300 percent jolt in Java performance, and multi-core integration of DSP, encryption and network processing, our new aJ-102 is positioned to radically enhance the IQ of 21st century smart infrastructure,” he added.

Java is preferred language for system developers

Developers of enterprise level software prefer Java for its cross-platform portability, modularity and reusability. By using an aJile Java processor, like the aJ-102, system developers can run Java code on the remote network edge controllers of their system without sacrificing any of the performance and hard real-time requirements that a Java translator/interpreter running on ARM would require, and without having to maintain and update some of their software in a second programming language, like C/C++. With a single enterprise-wide software platform, developers can significantly reduce development time, maintenance costs and integration efforts.
