For the first time ever, electronica and its partners ELEKTRONIKPRAXIS and MicroConsult are holding an embedded platforms conference — November 14 and 15. Together with the exhibition and the forum, it is part of the show’s three-pronged approach to the key topic of embedded. electronica, the International Trade Fair for Electronic Components, Systems and Applications, takes place in Munich from November 13 – 16.
Whether it comes to smartphones or industrial control systems: When developing a successful product, selecting the right embedded modules – i.e. the processor platform, operating system, drivers and networking technology – is not the only thing that plays an important role. It is also essential that the individual components interact correctly and that they are adapted to suit the specific application. Nicole Schmitt, electronica Exhibition Director, explains the significance of the new platform: “The conference is our way of addressing this challenge for embedded system engineers, who can come here to gather specific information about selecting a platform that is right for them.” Processor and controller manufacturers and their software partners can also attend seminars and lectures to find out what solutions they can use to support developers in the areas of component selection and system design. Sponsors that have already indicated interest include Infineon and TQ Components.
Embedded technology is very significant throughout the entire electronics industry. At electronica 2010, that fact was documented by 230 German and international companies in this sector and by the embedded Forum. As of 2012, the embedded platforms conference not only gives exhibitors an additional platform where they can present their developments and solutions. It also gives system architects and developers an opportunity to gather information about pioneering technologies and their potential applications.
