MicroEJ OS uses Micrium’s µC/OS RTOS kernel and associated libraries to provide software portability, scalability and security to embedded and IoT devices
MicroEJ® and Micrium Software, part of the Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB) portfolio, today announced the integration of the MicroEJ OS application platform and µC/OS real-time operating system (RTOS), designed to offer the best mixed C and Java language programming environment to software developers for embedded microcontrollers and microprocessors.
The combined solution of Micrium’s µC/OS RTOS runtime components and MicroEJ OS allows device manufacturers to quickly deliver embedded software that offers a richer user experience. MicroEJ and Micrium support a wide range of microcontroller architectures and evaluation kits, making this solution portable across all hardware configurations. As a result, manufacturers can capitalize on their software investment.
“MicroEJ allows device manufacturers to better manage the software content of their IoT devices by offering flexibility through dynamic and secure download of code as apps,” said Vincent Perrier, chief marketing officer of MicroEJ. “The combined Micrium µC/OS RTOS and MicroEJ OS are optimized for performance, power and footprint, so cost-effective, low-power IoT devices can benefit from capabilities, business models and ecosystems similar to mobile solutions with the online MicroEJ Store.”
“Micrium offers the most comprehensive and integrated environment for developing embedded software applications written in the C language on a large set of processors and boards,” said Jean Labrosse, founder of Micrium. “With MicroEJ, embedded developers can benefit from the productivity, security and scalability offered by a virtualization platform with minimal performance and footprint overhead. The combined Micrium and MicroEJ solution allows the Java development community to benefit from Micrium’s real-time and safety-critical capabilities, regardless of hardware platform.”
Combining Micrium and MicroEJ solutions for developing and deploying software for IoT and embedded devices enables:
- Support for a diversity of cost-effective and low-power hardware
- Reliable and optimized low-level software runtime that makes the most of available hardware services and allows connection to a variety of networks
- Delivery of a software platform to a large community of programmers that allows portable application development
- Connectivity to IoT cloud platforms for deployment of cloud-based services and big data analytics
- Dynamic app download that allows flexible software content management and the creation of ecosystems around online stores
The combined MicroEJ and Micrium solution is available today and will be demonstrated at ARM TechCon 2016 (http://www.armtechcon.com/) in Micrium’s booth, #800. The expo will take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California on October 26-27, 2016.
