Atego, a supplier of industrial-grade, collaborative development tools for engineering complex, mission and safety-critical architectures, systems, software and hardware, has launched Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 6.1, its next-generation embedded virtual machine and compilation technology for symmetrical multi-processor systems. With this release Atego introduces multi-core support for the Java 6 language for the first time in its Aonix Perc Ultra SMP product.
In addition to multi-core support for the Java 6 language, Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 6.1 provides new compilation technology producing tighter, more efficient code that executes up to 200% faster on average. An important feature added in this release is automatic generation of native method call marshalling code that yields up to 14x improvement in Java-to-native call speed compared to prior versions. And a graphical console called PConsole, with new support for multi-processor execution, is provided together with this release at no additional cost.
