MicroEJ unveiled major news in the fields of wearable design, energy management, Edge AI, and embedded security at CES 2023. Learn about its latest announcements for a software-defined world.
The first week of January means it’s time for the buzzing Consumer Electronics Show. The annual four-day tech show in Las Vegas showcases companies and developers at the forefront of technology and serves as a proving ground for breakthrough global innovations.
During the event, MicroEJ announced ground-breaking advancements in software-defined everything, turning fixed-function IoT products into a network of programmable devices with upgradable features and distributed intelligence.
After conquering the automobile, network, and radio industries, the Software-Defined revolution is now taking over the IoT world. Small embedded software container like the MicroEJ VEE make it possible to start with software first, decoupling hardware and software innovations. Manufacturers who embrace this new paradigm benefit from significant advantages to grow their business and gain significant competitive advantages:
- Increased innovation pace: manufacturers routinely launch products twice faster by leveraging new team topologies, agile methodology and continuous integration.
- Sustainable designs: a software-first approach enables carbon reduction from the early stages of the design process by allowing the use of lower-power and lower-cost hardware and reducing the development effort.
- New business models through servitization: software enables the constant upgrade of electronic products, allowing the addition of new features and software-based services that can be monetized.
- Supply chain resilience: by adding agility and flexibility to product design, manufacturers maintain their market presence by diversifying their electronic component suppliers.
Here are some of MicroEJ’s biggest announcements addressing the software-defined trend, from exciting demos to new customer products launches:
