Our story

In 2012, Android had become dominant after only 5 years, from a 5% to 65% market share in 2012. The first fleet of heterogeneous devices, smartphones, had created the first, massive “edge-with-cloud” computing ecosystem, with cheap-to-design software components. The APPs only needed to be written once, and were delivered everywhere, onto diverse electronic devices thanks to a standard “virtualization”.

In 2012, Dr Fred Rivard, Founder and CEO along with the future MicroEJ core team, decided it was the right timing to invest a few tens of millions of dollars to build a unique virtualization platform for the cost-effective electronic devices (the “Things” of the IoT). We accomplished this in the spirit of Android, using same APP standardized format, so that we could leverage the community of 20+ million mobile engineers. There was “only” one challenge: the size of the core virtualization needed to be about 1000 times smaller than Android, in order to cope with the economical constraints of more than 10 Billion devices that are cost-effectively manufactured every year. It took my R&D team 4 years to break that barrier, to create our MEJ32 softcore. Packaged within our Virtual Execution Environment (VEE), it now powers millions of devices, in various industries across Manufacturing, Smart Home, Wearables, Retail, Healthcare, Metering, Utilities, Industrial, Consumer, Defense, etc.

We are proud to positively contribute to a better digital world, with useful digital Things for every one: it is really rewarding for the teams, for our partners, for our customers, and obviously for the final users.”
