FREMONT, CA: Micrium Software, a part of the Silicon Labs and MicroEJ combined Micrium µC/OS real-time operating system (RTOS) and MicroEJ OS to offer C and Java language programming environment to software developers. The solution will enable software platforms accessible to a large community of programmers that allows portable application development. The combination of the application platform and the real-time operating system has been designed for embedded microcontrollers and microprocessors.
The new solution will increase performance and power while optimizing footprint to make the entire process cost-effective and enable low-power IoT devices gain benefit from capabilities, business models and ecosystems with the online MicroEJ Store. It will enable IoT and embedded devices to download apps that allow flexible software content management andthe creation of ecosystems around online stores. This is an initiative to develop and deploy software for IoT and embedded devices.
The solution will support cost-effective and low-power hardware while connecting IoT and embedded devices to IoT cloud platforms for deployment of cloud-based services and big data analytics. The low-level software runtime makes the most of available hardware services and allows connection to a variety of networks.
The quick delivery of embedded software gives more affluent user experience to device manufacturers. Also the manufacturers can capitalize on their software investment as the solution is portable across all hardware configurations.
“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,” says Jean Labrosse, Founder, 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.”
