Nantes, France, May 25, 2016 – IoT developers must cope with even more constraints than embedded developers (e.g., small footprints, low power considerations, faster prototyping to meet shorter time-to-market windows, connectivity to cloud platforms) and yet still produce top-quality, scalable, portable IoT software. The comprehensive IoT solution portfolio from MicroEJ® – MicroEJ Application Store, MicroEJ Studio, MicroEJ SDK, and MicroEJ OS – meets these challenges by enabling application-driven uses and business models on low-cost, resource-constrained embedded and IoT devices.
From 3:00-3:55pm on Wednesday, June 8th, Vincent Perrier, Chief Product Officer of MicroEJ, will give a presentation on an approach to overcome these IoT development challenges in Room 13AB at Embedded TechCon:
Presentation: “Software virtualization lessons for extreme IoT portability and scale”
Abstract: The diversity of systems on the Internet of Things presents serious limitations for developers seeking to deploy applications to the largest number of platforms, while the economics of IoT make producing hardware-dependent software an archaic notion. In addition, as more devices get connected and demand for IoT solutions grows, a software development ecosystem will be required that has a much larger size and scope than that currently available through the traditional embedded programming workforce. It’s time for a new approach.
Software virtualization provides a solution to these challenges, as it abstracts underlying hardware and makes IoT device software development accessible to the largest community of programmers in the world using the Java language. Although historically too cumbersome for use in resource-constrained devices based on microcontrollers, discover how a Java platform can be compacted to RTOS-level footprints to bring massive portability and scale to your IoT development efforts.
MicroEJ solutions combine the techniques, methods and tools that fueled the PC and mobile Internet software industry with the complex technical foundations of embedded systems (fragmented processor architectures and diverse hardware-dependent software and tools). MicroEJ OS is a scalable operating system for resource-constrained embedded, IoT and wearable devices. It is optimized for the wide range of IoT hardware architectures and enables device manufacturers to deliver differentiating firmware using MicroEJ Workbench tools.
MicroEJ Studio allows application developers to write applications and publish them to a MicroEJ Application Store from which they can be downloaded by owners/users of MicroEJ-ready devices (i.e., devices running MicroEJ OS). With MicroEJ solutions, OEMs use proven methods that cut software development time and cost. They create software that delivers incredible user experience and adjusts to the Internet business needs.
Co-located with the Design Automation Conference (DAC), Embedded TechCon is designed to educate today’s design engineers in the most critical embedded product and technologies. Embedded TechCon will be held at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas, on June 7th-8th, 2016. Vincent Perrier is available for meetings throughout the conference.
