MAJC, which Computerwire first revealed as a project within Sun back in June, and which Sun eventually announced in August (CI No 3,684; 3,716), is a new architecture that Sun says will be capable of processing the real-time streams of visual and audio information needed by an emerging set of new multimedia applications.
Simulated benchmarks carried out by Sun are said to show that the MAJC 5200 will be capable of decoding two MPEG streams in real time while simultaneously doing a surround sound audio decode or a web browsing session.
Sun Ray 2 will use an UltraJava chip (which Sun effectively re- announced recently as Microprocessor Architecture for Java Computing or MAJC) that will provide support for 3D modeling and a shared graphics pipe.
As the Microprocessor Report points out, that might be a reason to be a little skeptical about Sun's claim that the brand new MAJC chip, to be fully disclosed at the Microprocessor Forum in San Jose next month, is "the most important semiconductor architecture of the next 20 years." One area Sparc has been successful in is digital cameras.
As Sun Microsystems Inc spools out more details about its Microprocessor Architecture for Java Computing (MAJC) concept, questions remain about the efficiency and price of the multi- processor design.
Sun Microsystems Inc has introduced its Java Media Framework 2.0 application programming interface roadmap, a specification that will form a good part of the software development environment for important Sun projects, such as the Microprocessor Architecture for Java Computing (MAJC) chip and the America Online Inc "AOL TV" joint venture.
On Tuesday at Hot Chips, Sun Microsystems Inc's Marc Tremblay will offer a session on Sun's newly announced MAJC Microprocessor Architecture for Java Computing (CI No 3,716).
Sun Microsystems Inc is targeting the emerging market for media- rich internet and communications applications with a new multi- processor on a single core chip architecture, dubbed Microprocessor Architecture for Java Computing (MAJC or 'magic'), which is intended to spawn a family of system-on-a-chip (SOC) devices.
