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

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

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.

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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
