As a global player in the electronics industry, MicroEJ unveils its latest innovation in collaboration with Verisilicon: vector graphics on low-power, low-cost microcontrollers.

Cambridge, MA, February 27, 2020 --(PR.com)-- Verisilicon, a Silicon Platform as a Service (SiPaaS) company, and MicroEJ, a leader in trusted virtual execution environments for cost effective SoC/MCU/MPU, today announces their collaboration on providing software and hardware IP, with related tools, to manufacturers and silicon players willing to develop their own SoC or MCU. Together, the two partners make it possible to run legacy complex software on new integrated Verisilicon IPs based hardware, thanks to complete secure virtualization provided by MicroEJ Virtual Execution Environment (VEE). As soon as the MicroEJ VEE secure container runs on the new chip, all the previous software assets run the same, transparently leveraging the new hardware innovation from Verisilicon IP built in the new chip.

The Graphics Processing Unit Vivante GCNanoLite-V IP is the first IP that benefits from the partnership: MicroEJ VEE extendable embedded UI/UX open source multi-languages library (C, Java, Javascript, etc.) enables to run new and legacy UI applications, instantly. The first MCU powered by MicroEJ and Verisilicon is the i.MX-RT by NXP, targeting wearable, appliances, home and industrial markets.

MicroEJ VEE bridges Software innovation with Hardware innovations, enabling full scalability from conception to the development of a whole new line of products thanks to a joint software and hardware components mindset: assembling reusable assets, both software and hardware, thanks to secure virtualization. This solution is specifically well suited for very large volume markets, where Bill Of Material is a matter while still providing rich User Interfaces Experiences on resource constrained embedded devices.

“With its incredible growth, the small electronics industry is increasingly looking for both low consuming GUI combined with impressive performance on a very low footprint. When NXP had chosen our Vivante GCNanoLite-V IP to build their next gen i.MX-RT MCU, MicroEJ VEE was the obvious natural one-device platform, as our combined technologies follow the same cost oriented logic and address the same markets,” said Jarmon David, Sr. VP Worldwide Sales and Business Development at Verisilicon.

“Teaming with Verisilicon to provided cutting edge graphical user interface libraries for impeccable looking user experiences, with security at execution level, is the essence of MicroEJ VEE, often described as 'the tiny sibling of Android': making it as easy as possible for the mass of the software engineers to leverage hardware innovation,” said Fred Rivard, PhD, CEO of MicroEJ.
