Looking forward to Embedded World

By Colin Walls

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.
