EE Live! is all about Embedded

Next year’s Electronics Engineering Live! conference will be all about embedded, promising four days of talks, tutorials, boot camps, and post-mortem discussions centered around the themes of embedded systems design, security and connectivity.

Returning to the San Jose McEnery Convention Center on March 31-April 3, 2014, EE Live! (previously DESIGN West) is a week-long celebration of the art and science of engineering. The event is the industry’s largest and most comprehensive electronics technology conference and expo in the country. It offers engineers an opportunity to learn about the latest technologies, pick up new skills, and gather with their peers and tech experts from all over the world.

EE Live!’s focus on embedded matches the rise and growing ubiquity of embedded systems. Over the years embedded has become much cheaper, while low-cost, simple development tools and boards have brought embedded design to the masses. And embedded apps have become both more complex and simpler, requiring designers to not only stay up to date on the latest embedded systems developments, but also extend their knowledge beyond that domain.

That’s why right from the start, EE! Live kicks off with the three-day Embedded Systems Conference. ESC will introduce attendees to the emerging tools and techniques used to successfully reduce time, cost, and complexity in the embedded development process, while also offering strategies for optimizing their designs. ESC’s sessions will cover urgent challenges for today’s firmware, hardware, and software engineers across eleven distinct tracks – those tracks include Real-Time Operating Systems, Processors and Programmable Devices, Debugging and Test, and more.

EE Live!’s other programs outside of ESC also target the needs of embedded designers. The conference’s Android and FGPA Engineering Boot Camps, for example, will help engineers better understand those fields from an embedded perspective. And the two-day Black Hat Engineering Summit looks to provide a forum for the discussion and evaluation of the latest solutions for securing embedded systems from threats in today’s global environment. Meanwhile the Internet of Things Engineering Summit will examine the opportunities and challenges in connecting embedded systems to the cloud.

You can learn more about all the valuable embedded content EE Live! has to offer by perusing the conference’s Schedule Builder and ESC’s tracks.
