Developing Android compatible software applications for cost effective IoT and embedded devices has never been easier! MicroEJ has enhanced its MICROEJ VEE solution to support Android Studio and Gradle, enabling the same application to be developed, simulated, tested, and run on Android and MicroEJ alike.
By enabling the same software to run on either MicroEJ or Android execution environments manufacturers can easily switch from a powerful processor to a smaller one (e.g., Arm Cortex-A to Arm Cortex-M) to dramatically reduce energy consumption without sacrificing overall performance and UI/UX look and feel.
MicroEJ Android Compatibility Kit enables two processors to coexist to distribute tasks between a very powerful processor powered by Android and a low power processor powered by MicroEJ to dramatically reduce energy consumption.
Use MicroEJ Android Compatibility Kit to develop derivative products based on small MCUs or low-cost MPUs that cannot support Android due to their constrained resources.
By using MicroEJ Android Compatibility Kit, developers can use familiar tools such as Android Studio, IntelliJ IDEA, and Gradle to build energy-efficient applications, leveraging low-power features embedded at the heart of MICROEJ VEE for highly optimized resources usage.
MicroEJ has developed two plug-ins to ensure Android compatibility:
In this demo, witness a wearable Virtual Device created with MicroEJ launched within Android Studio using the Gradle build tool.
