Hi We are re-designing a SBC and evaluating different processors.
All application that ran on the previous system has been ported to Java so our customer is now facing performance issues.
We are considering Intel Atom, but I am still open to other options.
I have read a about Jazelle in the ARM cores, but am still unable to answer the following questions:
- Does it REALLY improve performance?
- I believe the OS needs to have built-in support for it to work. Is this something we will have to integrate ourselves in whatever BSP we are going to use? (We will be running on a WinCE platform)
- What processor cores could we possible use to harness Jazelle based features? (TI OMAP 3xx and i.MX51 seem to use this but could not get much information about Jazelle from their website)
Would much appreciate if somebody could give some pointers.
