NewMonics to Establish PERC as Java Standard with Royalty-free Model

5/1/2003 - NewMonics announced the first JS2E-class VM with a royalty-free licensing model. Under NewMonics' new model, PERC is licensed royalty-free by architecture with a single annual fee covering developer seats, maintenance and support, and deployment rights. Customers can enjoy royalty-free development - an option available only from clean-room Java vendors - in embedded software, and to easily and economically standardize on PERC for embedded Java technology.

"These sweeping changes to our licensing model, our solid support, and benefits such as participation on our Customer Advisory Board and optional source code access encourage major customers and startups to standardize on the PERC VM for embedded infrastructure applications," said Tim Tumilty, VP of Sales and Marketing at NewMonics. "PERC is the first J2SE-class embedded Java virtual machine to be offered under a royalty-free, architecture-based, subscription pricing model. Customers can now enhance and extend the licensed technology across multiple projects, products, and locations all under a single, straightforward contract.

As a clean-room developer of PERC, NewMonics owes no royalties to other companies for its core technology. As a result, NewMonics is able to respond to increasing customer and market demand for royalty-free pricing and has a strategic advantage in establishing its own business model as well as the terms and conditions of its PERC licenses.

The new reality our customers are facing is that they must do more with less. PERC offers all of the productivity advantages of Java technology with an unparalleled level of reliability and customer support. Couple these advantages with our new licensing model, and customers can dramatically improve productivity in and across projects, ease the administrative burden of multiple contracts, and reduce overall costs - they can do more for less."

PERC is used extensively in network infrastructure, industrial automation, telematics and military and aerospace markets.
