MachStream is an application acceleration platform that features hardware-based JIT technology. Its acceleration engine supports processor-intensive mobile Internet applications, such as multimedia, browser languages, and Java by moving these applications into silicon. MachStream is also designed to accelerate applications running on a variety of wireless operating systems and standards. This enables devices such as next-generation PDAs, smartphones, web-enabled phones, gaming consoles, and wireless tablets to process Java applications rapidly, according to the company. MachStream comprises two technologies: Mach1, a silicon-based JIT code translation and optimization accelerator, and Mach II, a hardware-based data processing engine. MachStream attaches to RISC and DSP architectures as an intelligent peripheral device and requires no modification to the processor architecture or layout. Initial implementations are optimized for the family of ARM processors but the technology is inherently processor independent.
