Next week, Tuesday-Thursday 14-16 March is Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany. This is the biggest event in the world of embedded systems. I have been to the show and conference most years over the last decade and this year is no exception. The event is a very large trade show, along with a technical conference. It is the conference where I usually find myself most occupied … Read the rest of this entry »

The biggest event on the embedded systems industry calendar is Embedded World, which takes place next week – Tuesday-Thursday, 23-25 February – in Nuremberg, Germany.


As usual, Mentor Embedded will have a presence there – Hall 4, Booth: 4-422. If you would like to learn about our embedded software development tools and operating system products, a team of experts will be on hand.

I am presenting a paper in the conference – USB3: All You Need to Know – at 13:30 on Thursday. If you would like a copy of my slides, please contact me via email or social media.

I will be at the show all day on Wednesday, mainly based at the Mentor booth. If you are attending, do stop by and say hello. If you would like to arrange a specific meeting, please email or contact me via social media.

The largest event in the world of embedded systems takes place in Nuremberg, Germany on Tuesday-Thursday next week. Embedded World is an annual trade show with a highly-regarded technical conference. This is an annual pilgrimage for me, as I generally have papers in the conference. This year is no exception … Read the rest of this entry »

Last week, as I previously previewed, was Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany. Now that I am back home, footsore and tired [and still harboring the symptoms of a head cold that makes traveling even less fun than normal], I can reflect on my experiences.

When I return from such events, it is always expected that I will have gained a firm impression of what the event was all about and what trends were apparent … Read the rest of this entry »

Next week, the world’s largest event, dedicated to embedded systems, takes place: Embedded World is on Tuesday-Thursday 25-27 February in Nuremberg, Germany. I have attended this show for many years and talked about it here. This year is no exception.

Mentor Embedded has a strong presence at the show in Booth 4‐422 in Hall 4, with numerous demos to see and members of the team to meet. I will be around on the booth for much of the show – do come along and say hello.

Embedded World is much more than a trade show – there is a growing conference too. The sessions are strictly vetted to ensure a good technical content. A number of members of our team have papers to present. This year, I have two:

  • Tues 25 Feb 14:00-14:30 – session 05 – “Power Management in Embedded Systems”
  • Thurs 27 Feb 11:30-12:00 – session 20 – “Interprocessor Communications and MCAPI”

Do come along if you are at the conference. If you would like copies of my presentations after the event, please email.

You can see a complete run down of Mentor Embedded’s presence, which outlines all the demos and lists all the conference papers.

This week I am on my annual pilgrimage to Nuremberg, Germany to attend Embedded World. This is the first major conference of the year that covers embedded software and is, I am sure, now the largest event serving this community anywhere in the world.

I have written about past visits and this year’s trip will be quite similar, except that I will be rather busy … Read the rest of this entry »

As I mentioned last week, I went to Embedded World in Nuremberg. The show itself seemed very busy – it was difficult to make my way through some of the crowds among the booths at times and there were a good many visitors to the Mentor Graphics booth. The event seems to be extending its reach beyond purely embedded systems. Although there were 2 or 3 halls full of technology that an embedded developer would recognize, elsewhere there were many booths showing other electronic paraphernalia – from chips to connectors to housings to professional services.

The conference seemed to be well attended too. There was a lot of activity on the floor where the conference rooms were located. With numerous streams of sessions, running all day, every day, I imagine that it might be hard for a visitor to plan their personal schedule. Talking with one of the organizers, I learned that submissions of papers were up significantly this year, which meant that many potential presenters were disappointed. My two presentations [details in last week’s post] went well, although an early start seemed to reduce attendance to the second one, even though it was about USB 3.0, which is normally a crowd puller.

This week sees the 10th anniversary of the Embedded World conference in Nuremberg, Germany. This show and conference has been growing steadily over the years and I guess it is now the biggest event devoted to embedded systems in the world.

I am fortunate enough to attend Embedded World most years, as I reported here and here, and this year is no exception. I have two papers in the conference: “USB 3.0 – An Introduction for Embedded Software Developers” – a topic I have addressed at a number of events in the last couple of years; “How to Measure RTOS Performance” – a new topic, inspired by a white paper written by some colleagues. If you would like copies of my slides for either or both of these sessions, please comment or email me.

The show runs Tuesday through Thursday. I will primarily be around on Wednesday, when any “spare” time that I have will be spent at the Mentor Graphics booth. If you are visiting Embedded World, do drop by and hi.

It is a curious thing, which I have written about before [here and here for example]: almost every electronic device that has been designed in the last 15-20 years has contained a microprocessor or microcontroller in some form – they are embedded systems. This means that, by definition, a significant part of the design and development process is the creation of software. And yet hardware design and embedded software design have been largely considered to be two separate worlds. But maybe that is about to change …

Mentor Graphics recognized the synergy between the two disciplines about 15 years ago, when the Embedded Software Division was created, and this has been a steadily growing part of the business. The other major electronic design [EDA] companies have been slower to catch on, so we remain unique in our ability to offer a truly complete solution.

In the embedded software world, there are a couple of major conferences that punctuate the year: the Embedded Systems Conference, Silicon Valley and Embedded World in Nuremberg. For the EDA folks, the big show is the Design Automation Conference [DAC], which takes place annually in various locations. This year, DAC is in San Diego, CA on 6-10 June. This year, the organizers decided to make a strong focus on embedded. Maybe things are about to change …

Last week I attended the Embedded World show in Nuremberg, Germany. I have been to this event most years and it just seems to get bigger and bigger. I have not seen the latest detailed statistics, but they claim to be the largest embedded exhibition in the world and I think that there is every reason to believe this claim is valid. The event is well organized and the location makes a lot of sense.

I did not have the opportunity to spend a lot of time wandering the show floor, so I am not going to even try to give an impression of what was on offer. In any case, there are numerous online news sources where you can read comprehensive reports. For me, the interesting experience was the conference … Read the rest of this entry »

Last week I went to Nuremberg [or Nürnberg if you prefer] to attend Embedded World 2010. I have been to this show most years over the last decade or so and it just seems to get bigger and busier each year. This year there were more than 700 exhibitors and in excess of 18,000 visitors. It is now definitely the biggest show/conference for embedded developers anywhere in the world. The electronic displays Conference was co-located; this seems like a reasonable synergy.

I had a number of specific reasons for being at the event, which turned out to be even more interesting than expected … Read the rest of this entry »
