Zhmicro announced that its novel technology for creating cross-platform applications is now compatible with Windows CE and Windows Mobile. The "Z47 Virtual Processors" and Z++ Visual IDE (integrated development environment) allow creating apps that run unmodified on Windows desktops, Linux, and Palm devices.
According to Zhmicro, the so-called Z47 Virtual Processors -- now available for Windows CE, Windows Mobile, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux, and Palm -- are actually software, occupying less than 500K of storage. Described by the company as "self-contained distributed operating systems," they are said to run applications without making system calls to the underlying operating system.
Zhmicro says the Z47 Virtual Processors are available for Windows CE, Windows Mobile, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux, and Palm. They may be downloaded for free from the company's website.
As for the Z++ Visual IDE, this is also available now, priced at $3,500.
