Intel Atom vs ARM, CPU battle for Java Embedded devices
By Hinkmond-Oracle on May 08, 2013
Whether its an embedded device with an ARM CPU chip or one of the new fancy-schmancy Intel Atom super-power-efficient, crazy-high-performance Silvermont CPU chips coming out for embedded and mobile devices, programming using Java Embedded technology will be the way to go on either.
Here's a quote:
The new microarchitecture, code-named Silvermont, will be a key building block in upcoming Intel chips for mobile gadgets, microservers and car entertainment systems, Chief Product Officer Dadi Perlmutter told reporters at an event on Monday. "We have not only reduced the power in a significant manner but it comes with significant performance," Perlmutter said.That's pretty cool. Our high-performance Java SE Embedded stack is available on both Linux/x86 and Linux/ARM to run on either of these competing CPU microarchitectures. Let the games begin! Anyone got any good microserver benchmarks in the meantime..?
