The newest product from MicroEJ, the MicroEJ Application Store, has be introduced. MicroEJ Application Store allows device manufacturers and OEMs to create an ecosystem around their products to serve their customers (device users), application developers, and service providers.As part of this ecosystem, users of MicroEJ-ready devices can extend the functionality of their devices and potentially subscribe to cloud-based services through applications, just as with smartphones and tablets.
The OS engine is very compact (down to 30 KB footprint) and boots in only 2 ms. The OS is scalable, so its services can be built to match hardware capabilities and software needs. MicroEJ OS runs on various processor architectures, including ARM Cortex-M and A: from Cortex-M0 with 128 KB flash and 32 KB RAM to Cortex-A9. Device software developers build the customized MicroEJ OS and firmware flashed to their IoT devices withMicroEJ Workbench, a toolset based on Eclipse.
Manufacturers can publish specifications of their MicroEJ-enabled devices on theMicroEJ Application Store. Virtual devices specify precisely the capabilities and set of APIs offered by the built-in MicroEJ OS in order to guide developers of applications for those devices.
End-users can download applications for their MicroEJ-ready devices from the Store.
They can install apps either through a mobile app or through the MicroEJ store app embedded in their devices.Application developers can develop and test applications for the published virtual devices on the Store withMicroEJ Studio, a FREE Java integrated development environment (IDE) built on Eclipse.
The MicroEJ Application Store will open at store.microej.com in Q1 2016 so that application developers can publish their first applications for microcontroller evaluation boards from semiconductor vendors like STMicroelectronics, Renesas Electronics, and NXP Semiconductors.
