Myriad Group And MIPS Technologies Accelerate Android(TM) Application Performance Up To 5x
TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- COMPUTEX -- MIPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital consumer, home networking, wireless, communications and business applications, and Myriad Group AG (SIX: MYRN), a global leader in mobile technology with software in over 2 billion phones, today announced availability of a high-performance full method-based Dalvik Turbo virtual machine (VM) optimized for the MIPS® architecture. Myriad's Dalvik Turbo VM replaces the standard Android Dalvik engine, accelerating performance up to 5x on real-world Android™ applications running on MIPS-Based™ devices.
With Dalvik Turbo VM, MIPS licensees can create SoCs with faster, more complex applications and richer game graphics optimized for Android smartphones and other high-performance consumer devices without requiring significant increases in device memory. The VM also provides substantial battery life improvements when running resource intensive tasks, all while retaining full compatibility with existing software. Myriad's Dalvik Turbo VM is operational on all current versions of Android up to and including versions 2.1 (Eclair) and soon to be available for 2.2 (Froyo).
"We have a long-standing relationship with MIPS Technologies and are pleased to continue our successful track record with this latest milestone," said Malcolm Dawe, chief product officer, Myriad Group. "With Myriad's heritage in virtual machines and Android platform expertise combined with MIPS Technologies' Android on MIPS initiative, we are bringing high-performance Android applications to mobile handsets and other consumer electronic devices, leading to a greatly enhanced user experience."
"MIPS Technologies has taken the lead in bringing the Android platform to a wide range of consumer electronics devices, and with this performance increase, our licensees will be able to create even richer and more compelling products with Android," said Art Swift, vice president of marketing, MIPS Technologies. "With this optimized Dalvik JIT engine, we are offering our licensees not only enhanced performance, but also a fully supported, commercial-grade product that will speed their time to market."As a founder of the Open handset Alliance (OHA), Myriad has contributed significantly to the Android platform and today continues to heavily invest in technological advances specifically targeted at Android. These include standalone applications such as a WAP browser, MMS messaging, SyncML client, DRM module and IMPS client. The company is also responsible for the Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) framework within OHA, which is used for testing the compatibility of Android systems.
