So at the last JavaOne we talked about developing a Java powered Programmable Automation Controller (JPAC) with our partner Pactron in Santa Clara.
We actually demoed it running first at the Embedded Show in Germany this March.
JPAC is based on a Marvell 88F6282 Kirkwood ARM SOC, we partnered with Hilsher from just outside Frankfurt, Germany for the mini pci ProfiBus controllers, Revolution Robotics from Corvallis, Oregon wrote the Java SE Embedded for ARM to Hilscher Linux driver interface.
Revolution Robotics also designed the HTML5 application that runs on a Marvell ARM tablet to actually send and receive commands via ProfiBus to a slave device.
We will have the system running in our booth at JavaOne this year, come take a look.
If you are registered at JavaOne you can come over to the Java Embedded @ JavaOne for $100
Come see us in booth 5605
See you thereDave
