Boston, December 22, 2021

MicroEJ, a leader in software enablement solutions for IoT and embedded devices, today announced its collaboration with Groupe SEB, who is integrating the MICROEJ VEE solution (Virtual Execution Environment and software application containerization) into the design of several high value-added electronic products such as the cooker Cookeo Touch Standard/Wifi and Companion Touch XL.

Every year, Groupe SEB renews a third of its products by reinventing, modernizing and adapting them to the needs of consumers around the world as innovation is a strategic priority.

Designing innovative, feature-rich products that are also easy to use is a priority for Groupe SEB to meet consumer needs. To achieve this, Groupe SEB has chosen to integrate MICROEJ VEE, a safe and secure solution that combines simplicity and reliability into the development process.

With more than 100 million units already sold “Powered by MicroEJ”, MICROEJ VEE application container is known to simplify the software complexity for the development of electronic products.  This collaboration allows Groupe SEB to:

  • Be in control of product launch plans: MICROEJ VEE provides innovation to accelerate time-to-market while offering evolving products that reflect customer requirements.
  • Reduce embedded software complexity: MICROEJ VEE radically accelerates software development by reducing its complexity and parallelizing its design cycle for electronic hardware through simulation and virtual devices.
  • Democratize embedded software: MicroEJ supports several programming languages such as C, Java language, JavaScript and soon Kotlin in order to leverage more than 35 million developers worldwide through the most open and standard development environments on the market.
  • Mitigate electronic components shortages: Faced with the shortage of electronic components, MICROEJ VEE enables manufacturers to maintain their market presence by diversifying their electronic component suppliers. The additional costs associated with managing multiple suppliers are more than offset by reducing risk, predictable revenue streams and productivity gains.

“This collaboration with our partner MicroEJ has allowed us to enhance Groupe SEB’s R&D approach to accelerate the development of complex software for our products! Thanks to the virtualization and ecosystem offered by MicroEJ, we can easily design high quality graphical interfaces and integrate them on the various electronic systems of our product lines”.

Says Sophie CHABANNES, Vice President of Product Development Groupe SEB

 

MicroEJ is proud to collaborate today with Groupe SEB to complete its technical offering through three competitive advantages:

1) An efficient development process with no impact on electronic costs;
2) High levels of safety;
3) Reduced time-to-market.

Today, these are essential factors for creating high value-added products. At CES 2022 in Las Vegas, Groupe SEB “Powered by MicroEJ” products will be on display at our booth to showcase customer innovation to the largest number of visitors”.

Says Fred RIVARD, President of MicroEJ

MicroEJ will be present at CES 2022 (Venetian Expo, Hall A-D, booth 52529) as well as at CES Unveiled in Las Vegas, a unique opportunity to share new IoT (Internet of Thing) trends and present MicroEJ’s growth and future goals.
