MicroEJ VEE real-time secures embedded devices

BOSTON –Sept, 28, 2018 – Today MICROEJ®, the leader in secure embedded software platforms, released a new version of its Virtual Execution Environment (VEE) for real-time execution on electronic devices.

After several dedicated projects for Factory 4.0 markets, MicroEJ released the real-time extension of its Virtual Execution Environment (VEE) for electronics devices such as connected pumps, valves and other critical actuators and sensors.

On simple processors, massively used in embedded systems such as microcontrollers operating in the range of 100MHz, a high priority critical task being executed in a virtual space is able to gain control over other best-effort tasks within 0.000025s (25µs). With this new real-time execution capability, combined with the use of VEE virtualization and high-level programming technologies such as OOP, it is possible to address secure and reliable critical systems for markets such as Industrial, Automation, Medical, Control Command, Motors & Sensor controls, Automotive, …

Previous VEE flavors introduced trusted execution environment containers providing various checks to improve system reliability. These containers control the RAM usage, the resources and peripheral access rights and the security policy. The real-time VEE introduces a dichotomy between critical tasks and other applications tasks: all VEE activities can be preempted within an extreme low latency, at any time, and without jeopardizing the state of the complete system.

Typical application of such real-time capability deal with real-time hardware controls including Inputs/Outputs (IOs). Indeed, the high-level software executed by the real-time VEE can control such IOs with minimal jitter, while being portable across a large range of processors and RTOS without recompilation (portability at binary level).

MicroEJ VEE runtime is available royalty free, based on a multi-year contract and terms. Customers can use any VEE options freely on any device. This business model perfectly matches the needs for developing portable software applications across large products line portfolio while leveraging the electronics of each product, at no extra cost.
