re: 28KB Java virtual machine supports 32-bit MCUs

I'm not a big fan of Java. The promise has always been great, but it always seems like the reality falls a bit short. Of course, I've only used Java as an applications platform, not as a development platform or as an embedded OS. But ignoring my opinions, I wouldn't think that running this on a Zynq would be out of the question. I would think that a FPGA based ARM (hard or soft) would be an ideal use for a JVM like this.

This is certainly not the industry's first small JVM. Lejos has been doing this for ages: http://lejos.sourceforge.net/ Lejos is about the same size on ARM. Lejos has been running on ARM micros for almost 6 years and on H8 for much longer than that.

Hi Max. Yes, the MicroJvm can run on any ARM Cortex-M implementation. No limitation due to FPGA.

So, is there any reason this virtual machine couldn't run on FPGA-based Cortex-M hard and/or soft processors?

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
