New impetus for embedded-system design

At the embedded platforms conference from November 14 - 15, semiconductor and tool manufacturers as well as service-providers will present concrete solutions and services for developing embedded platforms. The conference will cover a wide range of topics, from embedded design and multicore to Ethernet and low power. This is the first time that the conference is being held in conjunction with electronica (November 13 - 16) in Munich. The variety of the two-day conference is reflected by the group of sponsors that each accompany a lecture session: Atmel, Farnell, Freescale, Fujitsu, Infineon, SGET e.V., Texas Instruments, TQ Systems and Toshiba as well as their distribution, tool and solutions partners will present current and future models for developing embedded platforms. In addition, independent service providers such as the Open Source Automation Development Lab and MicroConsult will give participants a look at the latest industry trends. For example, the program of events includes lectures on the use of multicore as well as multiprocessing, DSP (digital signal processor), USB (universal serial bus), Ethernet, motor control, safety, low power, migration, freeware and Open Source. Participants will also get useful information about the capabilities of and differences between modern controller and standards as well as tracing, debugging and analysis solutions. Twelve lecture series will give developers and system architects a chance to take new ideas home with them, compare various suppliers and get a comprehensive look at the latest solution approaches.
