Jørgen Lindskov Knudsen is managing director of Mjølner Informatics ( and associate professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Aarhus. Jørgen Lindskov Knudsen was Program Chair of the European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming 2001. He has been working with object technologies since around 1980 and has participated in several research projects, including the Mjølner project, the EuroCoop and EuroCODE projects, and projects for the Centre for Object Technology. Presently he and Mjølner Informatics is an active partner in the Object Technology for Devices project organized by the Alexandra Institute.

Java in 8 and 16 bit devices

The emerging market of devices for pervasive computing (i.e. small computational units to be available virtually everywhere) have resulted in an increased attention to platforms that are both cost and power effective while at the same time functionally advanced. This implies a renewed interest in 8 and 16 bit architectures. These processors have very limited capabilities and thus lie virtually outside the reach of traditional Java technology.

In this talk, we will further discuss these issues and present Java bytecode executed on as little a device as an 8 bit processor with 0.5 Kb RAM and 8 Kb ROM.
