Title
(EN) DATA PROCESSING SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE TRAITEMENT DE DONNEES
Abstract
(EN) An architecture suitable for running on processing systems of limited processing power is disclosed. The architecture facilitates the portability of applications and optimises the use of CPU and/or memory resources. The architecture is embodied in novel data structures and applications which may be compiled into an extremely low footprint and optimised machine code. Also disclosed are tools for developing applications and particular applications of the architecture. The invention is particularly useful in the context of set-top-boxes, where it facilitates production of interactive games and the like which were previously not practicable.
(FR) L'invention concerne une architecture permettant de faire fonctionner des systèmes de traitement de capacité limitée de traitement. L'architecture facilite la portabilité d'applications et optimise l'utilisation de l'unité centrale et/ou de ressources de mémoire. L'architecture se présente sous la forme de nouvelles structures de données et d'applications qui peuvent être compilées dans un très faible encombrement et dans un code machine optimal. L'invention concerne également des outils de développement d'applications et notamment d'applications de l'architecture. L'invention est notamment utilisée dans le contexte de boîtes de montage, où elle facilite la production de jeux interactifs et équivalent qui n'étaient précédemment pas praticables.
