At EclipseCon Europe, MicroEJ introduced MicroEJ Studio, its solution for application developers; at CES, it introduced the MicroEJ Application Store, its solution for delivering applications to IoT devices. At Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany, MicroEJ will unveil the latest version of its MicroEJ OS.
MicroEJ OS continues to address traditional resource-constrained embedded systems, while version 4 adds capabilities dedicated to IoT devices. IoT devices are embedded systems with strong performance, footprint and reliability constraints. In addition, IoT devices interact with cloud platforms by being connected to the Internet either directly or through a gateway or mobile companion. They also offer new experiences to their users beyond their core functionality (for example, beyond giving the temperature, a smart thermostat may also act as a gateway and control other connected devices in the home through a local wireless network).
MicroEJ OS 4 offers the following key capabilities in order to deliver on the IoT promise:
MicroEJ OS resides on hardware-dependent software foundations, sitting either directly on the hardware (“bare metal”) or on top of a real-time kernel (a.k.a. RTOS) and associated native libraries (such as TCP/IP, File System, USB stacks). Supported RTOS are delivered by partner vendors like Micrium, SEGGER, Express Logic, or available in open source like FreeRTOS, or provided by semiconductor vendors like STMicroelectronics STM32Cube, NXP Kinetis SDK and Renesas Synergy Software Package (SSP). Supported SSL library provider is wolfSSL.
The company’s comprehensive IoT solution portfolio – MicroEJ Application Store, MicroEJ Studio, MicroEJ Workbench, and MicroEJ OS will be demonstrated at Embedded World on hardware platforms from various partner vendors based on ARM Cortex-M, Cortex-A, or other architectures: STMicroelectronics STM32, NXP Kinetis and i.MX, and Renesas Synergy and RZ.
Visit MicroEJ at Embedded World in Booth 4-259 (in Hall 4) at the Nuremberg Exhibition Center in Nuremberg, Germany from February 23rd-24th, 2016.
