Download and Install a MicroEJ Platform

MicroEJ SDK being a cross development tool, it does not build software targeted to your host desktop platform. In order to run MicroEJ Applications, a target hardware is required. Several commercial targets boards from main MCU/MPU chip manufacturers can be prepared to run MicroEJ Applications, you can also run your applications without one of these boards with the help of a MicroEJ Simulator.

A MicroEJ Platform is a software package including the resources and tools required for building and testing an application for a specific MicroEJ-ready device. MicroEJ Platforms are available at https://developer.microej.com/5/getting-started-sdk.html.
