I'd like to know if there is any existing product based on picoJava and any development kit designed for the developer on picoJava.

Sorry, I checked this web page before but I didn't find that Sun Microsystem disclose any information on the new products for picoJava or the development platform for picoJava

Of course you know that picoJava is not a product per se that you can buy but rather it is a core design that can be incorporated into another design.  That is, it's IP (intellectual property) that an IC designer can incorporate into an overall chip. Think of it as a library or DLL to a software program.

 In spite of all the hype, Sun is seriously behind in delivery of a working picoJava design.  As such, I am not aware of any functional ICs that have been built using this technology from Sun or any of their licensees.  If there had been, you can bet that Sun would be shouting it from the rooftops!

I think you are quite right in saying that Sun will shount it out if it is really an existing product.  But, I am still wonder is there any development platform for picoJava in this world.

Indeed, I sent email to Sun.  But, there is no reply until now.
