Sony Ericsson has licensed the ARM JTEK software to be used with ARM Jazelle acceleration technology, in its Java platform-enabled mobile handsets.

Sony Ericsson has licensed the ARM JTEK software to be used with ARM Jazelle acceleration technology, in its Java platform-enabled mobile handsets.

It has also licensed the ARM VTK software for acceleration of non-Jazelle-technology-enabled ARM platforms.

This latest JTEK software licence further expands support for the widely deployed ARM Jazelle hardware acceleration technology, and will contribute to bringing significant performance enhancements to Sony Ericsson's Java technology-enabled handsets.

"Java has proved itself to be a key technology in the delivery of applications across mobile devices", said Ben Wood, Principal Analyst at Gartner.

"It is one of the most widely used application environments on mobile phones today, and its use is set to expand".

"Mobile operators are keen to see Java more widely deployed, as it is a means of promoting additional, non-voice revenue streams".

Sony Ericsson will incorporate the ARM JTEK software in its designs to enable the Jazelle technology embedded within the ARM926EJ-S processor, to accelerate the execution of Java applications.

The solution will give greater performance levels for media rich content such as media streaming and the latest Java technology-based games, without increasing system cost or power requirements.

"Java technology is already a very important element of mobile applications, currently for gaming, but with the potential to go beyond this", said Oliver Gunasekara, Global Director of Wireless, ARM.

"As such, handset vendors are focused on maximising its potential and are looking toward Java acceleration in the core to make the most of Java technology-specific applications".

Sony Ericsson will begin shipping devices incorporating the JTEK software and the Jazelle-technology-enabled ARM926EJ-S processor during 2004.
