Sun Microsystems Inc. has designed a general-purpose convergence processor architecture called Microprocessor Architecture for Java Computing (MAJC, OmagicO) that promises to deliver high performance in complex multimedia applications. It is described by Sun as providing the capability to independently run multiple processors on a single chip, a radical departure from previous RISC- and CISC-based instruction set architectures. Targeted applications include set-top boxes, video games, hand-held
