OK Labs says its microkernel for processor virtualization is now ready to support the ARMv6 architecture and Windows CE. The company hopes that as a result, mobile phone designers using ARM11-based processors will tap its OKL4 microkernel to add security features such as DRM, or to enable single-core architectures.
OK Labs competitor Trango, meanwhile, announced similar capabilities in June.
OKL4 says its port of OKL4 to ARMv6 supports MMU (memory management unit) and cache architectures. The company claims that OKL4 can perform fast context switching between virtualized processes by using the ARMv6 address space identifier (ASID) feature.
