Fujitsu first to flag production of picoJava

Fujitsu says it will start producing Java chips aimed at the anticipated market for inexpensive Internet appliances based on Sun Microsystems picoJava core design.
The company will begin mass production this year and expects to produce about two million Java chips in its first year and as many as 10 million chips annually by 2001. The announcement is an important boost for Sun’s efforts to promote Java chip production and use, after a slow start.
Fujitsu obtained a license for picoJava from Sun late last year. Although Sun has licensed picoJava to several major chip companies, they have been slow to begin volume production of Java enabled chips.
