The detailed schedule is not finalized yet, but key tracks for the Embedded System Conference will include:

  • Analyzing, Debugging, and Agile Development:  Software and hardware methodologies that rely on agile development, static analysis, model-driven tools and other techniques to maximize system performance while avoiding costly and time-wasting mistakes.
  • Best Practices; Managing, Process and Quality: From concept to production-worthy code and systems,  “best practices” information for engineering project management, maintaining quality and avoiding common s/w and h/w mistakes.
  • Challenges and Solutions in Embedded Design: Experts describe myriad successful outcomes to embedded design’s most difficult problems. An emphasis on case studies and real world examples.
  • Connectivity and Networking: Understanding and implementing wired and wireless Internet,  “cloud”,  local interface and network connections to and within embedded systems.
  • Design, Test, Prototype and System Integration:  Time to market: a whole-system approach to software and hardware, focusing on modeling, simulation (including virtual), testing  and software/hardware system integration and test.
  • FPGAs in Embedded Systems: FPGAs with intelligent peripherals, multicore processors, DSPs and on-the-fly reconfiguration can replace entire PCBs. Here’s what you need to know about the latest instantiations, programming, IP and coexistence with other CPUs.
  • Hardware, Architectures, and I/O:  Hardware-centric approaches to small form factors, HMI displays, multicore, popular CPUs and microcontrollers,  reference design examples, more.
  • Linux, Android and Open Source:  Evaluating, understanding and using embedded Linux, the Android platform, and other popular open-source software.
  • Low-Power Design: It’s all about balancing low power, performance and cost – from processor selection and low-power modes, system design, tips and tricks, and writing efficient software.
  • Microcontrollers and SoCs in Embedded Designs:  Understanding, selecting, designing, programming, and using MCUs and SoCs in embedded. Sessions vary from coding the latest ARM (and other) processors to designing the entire system with I/O and sensors.
  • New Directions in Software, Processes and Tools:  Changes are coming to modern languages like C, C++, Java and others, and common IDEs like Eclipse and other tool suites keep evolving to meet new requirements. Tune in to stay plugged into what’s new.
  • Programming, Languages and Techniques:  This track offers insights that will help you write code that’s more reliable, maintainable, efficient and/or portable using the most popular languages for developing embedded systems.
  • RTOS and Real Time:  Fundamental real-time concepts, selecting and understanding an RTOS, developing and verifying real-time systems.
  • Security and Safety Come to Embedded:  Examining security and malicious attack mitigation for connected embedded systems; and aspects of developing, testing and deploying for life- and safety-critical systems.
