Short Take: Sun opens up picoJava

Sun Microsystems has posted the designs of its picoJava microprocessor on the Web under the terms of its Community Source License, under which anyone may look at the designs, only paying Sun royalties if they ship products. Sun announced that it hoped making the designs available would spur adoption of its chips, and the picoJava chip is the first the company has released. The company also plans to release UltraSparc chip designs.
