  • Safe, secure and real-time, with deterministic design technology
  • Support of OpenJDK libraries and compliance with Java Standard Edition
  • Native support for the real-time specification for Java (RTSJ)
  • Dynamic download support
  • Deterministic real-time Java bytecode programming language for complete hardware abstraction
  • Complete set of cross-compilation tools, including trace analysis and emulation
  • Low memory footprint using compaction techniques

"In critical areas such as automotive, medical or industrial equipment, Java ensures real-time reliability," said Thierry Le Gall, CEO of ISIT. "Our agreement with aicas allows us to extend our reach into markets, where embedded solutions are making a difference particularly when safety and security constraints are at stake."

The JamaicaVM platform combines security, modularity, portability and a small embedded footprint for development and management of critical Cloud-based applications. It is optimized for coding control and compatibility among Real-Time Operating Software (RTOS) and diverse Operating Systems and processors.

"aicas is very pleased to be working with ISIT as a value-added distributor for the marketing and support of our JamaicaVM offering," said James Hunt, aicas CEO and Co-founder.
