MicroEJ adds GUI and Bluetooth support to Murata Type 1LD Wi-Fi+BLE combo
Murata and MicroEJ collaborated to support the ultra-small Wi-Fi + Bluetooth combo module through a specific development board, Type1LD EVB MicroEJ is providing its leading trusted Virtual Execution Environment (VEE), mixing C and Java technologies for IoT application development.
What are Murata 1LD Module specificities?
The Murata Type 1LD module is small size (8.9 x 7.8 x 1.2 mm), dedicated to highly integrated IoT devices using a single processor for both communication and software applications.
Type 1LD module is based on CYW43438 combo chipset + STM32F412 MCU, which supports Wifi 802.11b/g/n + Bluetooth 4.1.
MicroEJ VEE for Murata 1LD is an ideal combination to create highly integrated, low-cost and low-power IoT edge devices
Using MicroEJ Virtual Execution Environment (VEE) APIs for Wi-Fi network, Bluetooth, file systems, graphical User Interface and other on-module peripherals, developers can build feature rich applications using graphical displays, while manage short range wireless connectivity over BLE, collect and process data to easily connect to Cloud service providers.
- Software execution supports C and Java technologies
- Provide Java APIs from C drivers to support MCU peripherals such as ADC or SPI
- Application software related to BLE connectivity and Cloud connectivity can be easily designed with Java technology.
- Application software independent from Wi-Fi / BLE middleware
- MicroEJ virtualization provides a high abstraction level: application software layers are independent from middleware API’s, RTOS and C compilers. When updating the Type 1LD module middleware, application software is kept unchanged.
- Software robustness is improved
- MicroEJ virtualization protect hardware and middleware from suspicious application behavior. It greatly improves software robustness and security, which is critical for IoT applications.
- Graphical User Interface
- The MicroEJ VEE is ready to support graphical displays connected over Type 1LD module SPI interface.
- Examples of GUI applications running on STM32F4 processors (used by Murata Type 1LD module) can be found below:
Which electronic products can be developed with Type 1LD Modules and MicroEJ software?
- Home automation devices
- Home appliances
- Heating systems
- Industrial automation.
