ARM Java acceleration software delivers high Java performance with Jazelle technology

CAMBRIDGE, UK - Feb. 9, 2005 - ARM, [(LSE: ARM); (Nasdaq: ARMHY)], today announced that Siemens has licensed the ARM® Jazelle®
Technology Enabling Kit (JTEK™) software for deployment in its next-generation ARM Powered® feature phones.

Device manufacturers and service providers are increasingly using Java technology as a low cost means to quickly deploy new applications, such as complex games and mobile push services. ARM Jazelle technology enables execution of Java byte code in hardware offering the capability to run these new and demanding applications much faster, with limited power and cost penalties. Acceleration of Java technology, as part of the core architecture, requires no additional ROM/RAM, yet provides increased efficiency in power. This means consumers can use mobile devices to run Java applications for longer without sacrificing performance or responsiveness.

"Complexity in mobile Java applications is increasing rapidly, putting great strain on consumer devices. JTEK software enables the smooth running of these applications without sacrificing battery life or start-up time," said Chris Porthouse, Execution Environments product manager, ARM. "The exponential growth in JTEK technology-enabled handsets is set to continue and this will help strengthen our current position."
