Posted by Charbax – January 29, 2020

MicroEJ (http://www.microej.com) has experienced exponential growth over the past few years both in the number of Powered by MicroEJ devices running its revolutionary virtualization container, and in the number of leading industry partners and customers in the smart devices industry: NXP, Sony, Murata, Silicon Labs, or Zebra Technologies just to name a few. Full public customer list can be found at www.microej.com/customer/

Since 2016, MicroEJ recorded a +100% year-over-year growth in the number of Powered by MicroEJ devices and 2019 is no exception, with tens of Million Powered by MicroEJ smart devices already in the market today, including healthcare products, telecommunications, wearables, industrial devices, and, more generally speaking, all kinds of embedded systems.

The company expects the extraordinary growth to continue well beyond 2020 fueling its global expansion. With roots in both the US and in Europe, MicroEJ has also seen over a 30% increase year-over-year in the number of new global customers that have licensed MicroEJ technology to build their smart or IoT devices.

MicroEJ is the only on-device-platform available on the market today to build highly secure, connected and cost-effective smart and IoT devices

“What MicroEJ did is nothing less than extraordinary,” said Jeb Su, Principal Analyst at Atherton Research. “They’ve totally re-engineered the standard virtualization technology used by Android, and scaled it down by several order of magnitude to work on small IoT devices, thus opening this everyday device world to the tens of millions of developers that are currently developing apps for Android devices like smartphones, TVs, or smart speakers which explains its runaway success in the marketplace today.”

Fast Facts:
● 6 offices worldwide: US, France, Japan, South Korea, China, Romania
● Over $30 million invested in Research and Development, mostly self-funded
● MicroEJ VEE is the only secure on-device platform in the market today optimized to run on low- cost, low-powered smart and IoT devices, allowing millions of engineers to apply and re-use their smartphone knowledge to develop smart applications for any devices

“Both Android and MicroEJ architectures share the same virtualization core technology making it possible for device manufacturers to benefit from what created the success of the smartphone industry: software assets capitalization (write once, reuse on every device), and secure execution under control of a virtual container,” said Dr. Fred Rivard, CEO of MicroEJ. “It allows device manufacturers to experiment with incremental innovation to follow market changes, to improve security, while at the same time reducing complexity synonym of costs reduction.”
