MicroEJ has announced the availability of its standard virtualization technology for Microchip’s 32-bit microcontroller (MCU) product line.
MICROEJ VEE, MicroEJ’s flagship Virtual Execution Environment, embraces the Total System Solutions vision that’s shared by both companies, enabling a market ready solution for MCUs and software integration.
Thanks to this combined solution, smart device manufacturers can achieve important system design cost reductions (both hardware and software), with more security and safety, as well as a much faster time-to-market.
With the support of more than 10 million skilled engineers worldwide powered-by MicroEJ Microchip SAM MCU based products enable advanced innovation in harsh and demanding environments, where distributed intelligence is a key differentiator, alongside energy efficiency, appealing graphical user interfaces and intelligent sensors. This collaboration will allow manufacturers to benefit from an end-to-end solution that is reliable and ready to use.
By providing extensive open source libraries for UI/UX, wired and wireless communication, security, and automation, MicroEJ technology for Microchip MCUs will help to greatly reduce embedded systems complexity, resulting in the large reduction of development costs, while securing core functionalities at the edge and accelerating the pace of innovation in markets such as consumer, industrial, appliances, medical, energy, etc.
Starting with the rich SAM E7x MCU product line, MICROEJ VEE enables binary software components capitalization and reuse across the broad Microchip portfolio made of heterogenous cores (microApti, ARM Cortex-M0+, ARM Cortex-M23, M4K, ARM Cortex-M4, ARM Cortex-M7). It also enables secure APP-minded sandboxed software designs, leveraging the MicroEJ binary software application store: MICROEJ Forge.
MICROEJ Forge administrates software asset life cycles (prepare, register, publish, deliver, etc.) while ensuring the maximum level of reliability to the community it addresses, such as the various R&D teams of large corporates: capitalization across several business units becomes a reality.
“The collaboration between MicroEJ and Microchip has opened more possibilities than ever for AI/IoT/ML devices manufacturers,” said Dr. Fred Rivard, MicroEJ’s CEO. “Our first successful field-proven realizations with Microchip SAM E7 MCUs in industrial rugged gateways make us very confident in the tremendous potential of leveraging MicroEJ technology for successful, smart IoT and embedded devices.”
Microchip’s vp Rod Drake added, “MicroEJ VEE enables the standard virtualization technology used by Android and have scaled it down by several orders of magnitude to work on our SAM E7 MCU product lines. This incredible achievement opens a world of new opportunities that will positively transform the embedded marketplace.”
