MicroEJ and Groupe SEB, leader in small domestic
BOSTON, Dec. 22 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – MicroEJ, a leader in software activation solutions for IoT and embedded devices, today announced its collaboration with Groupe SEB, which integrates the MICROEJ VEE solution (Virtual Execution Environment and software containerization application) in the design of several high added value electronic products such as the Cookeo Touch Standard / Wifi and Companion Touch XL cooker.
Each year, Groupe SEB renews a third of its products by reinventing them, modernizing them and adapting them to the needs of consumers around the world, because innovation is a strategic priority.
Designing innovative, feature-rich and easy-to-use products 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 in the development process.
With over 100 million units already sold “Powered by MicroEJ”, the MICROEJ VEE application container is known to simplify software complexity for electronic product development. This collaboration allows Groupe SEB to:
- Be in control of product launch plans: MICROEJ VEE innovates to accelerate time to market while offering scalable products that reflect customer requirements.
- Reduce the complexity of embedded software: MICROEJ VEE radically accelerates software development by reducing its complexity and parallelizing its electronic hardware design cycle through simulation and virtual devices.
- Alleviating shortages of electronic components: Faced with the shortage of electronic components, MICROEJ VEE allows manufacturers to maintain their presence on the market by diversifying their suppliers of electronic components. The additional costs associated with managing multiple vendors are more than offset by reduced risk, predictable revenue streams, and productivity gains.
âThis collaboration with our partner MicroEJ has enabled us to enrich 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 into the various electronic systems of our product lines â.
According to Sophie CHABANNES, Vice-President Product Development Groupe SEB
âMicroEJ is proud to collaborate today with Groupe SEB to complete its technical offer through three competitive advantages:
1) An efficient development process without impact on electronic costs;
2) High levels of security;
3) Reduced time to market.
These are now essential factors for creating products with high added value. At CES 2022 in Las Vegas, Groupe SEB âPowered by MicroEJâ products will be on display at our stand to present customer innovation to as many people as possible â.
Says Fred RIVARD, President of MicroEJ
MicroEJ will be present at CES 2022 (Venetian Expo, Hall AD, booth 52529) as well as CES Unveiled in Las Vegas, a unique opportunity to share new IoT (Internet of Thing) trends and present the growth and future goals of MicroEJ.
