Fremont, CA — (press release excerpt) — Insignia Solutions announced today that it will work with Intel Corporation to optimize Insignia's Jeode virtual machine technologies for the Intel XScale microarchitecture reference platform. The Intel XScale reference platform, which will include the recently introduced href=”/NS5380147867.html” target=”_blank”>Jeode PDA Edition, is a tool to enable developers and OEMs to rapidly bring to market a variety of wireless and handheld applications, as well as portable information appliances. Insignia is a member of Intel's PCA Developer Network.

“Java technology is becoming a significant element in many of the devices for which our Intel Xscale-based application processors are designed,” said Mark Casey, director of marketing for Intel's Handheld Computing Division.

The Jeode platform enables accelerated and robust Java functionality on information appliances. A “Sun Authorized Virtual Machine” fully compatible with the PersonalJava and EmbeddedJava specifications, the Jeode EVM can execute Java applications 6-10 times faster than interpretive JVMs in roughly the same amount of memory.
