Embedded World, Nuremberg is next week!

By Colin Walls

Next week, Tuesday-Thursday, is what I believe to be the biggest event dedicated to embedded system development on the planet: Embedded World. It is a massive show. The exhibition includes just about anything remotely connected with embedded design. It is so large that there is a shuttle bus to take you from one side of the site to the other. Mentor is exhibiting there, of course, and, along with a few colleagues, I will be presenting a number of papers in the conference …

Mentor’s booth is in Hall 4 – booth #4643. There will be lots going on. You can see full details here.

The conference at Embedded World has numerous tracks and is carefully managed to avoid to many sales pitches. I have spoken here most years and the sessions are usually very well attended. This year I have four papers:

  • C – The Language of Embedded – Tuesday 09:30-10:00
  • Dynamic Memory Allocation & Fragmentation in C & C++ – Thursday 10:00-10:30
  • Self-testing in Embedded Systems – Thursday 14:30-15:00
  • Writing Reliable Code with MISRA C – Thursday 12:00-12:30

If you are attending Embedded World, do stop by and say hello. If you would like copies of any of my slides, please contact me by email or via social media.

  • Hi Collin,
    I appreciate the webinars that you present on the Embedded systems master class seminar. I have attended all up until Encapsulation of Expertise. I will be attending the Embedded world in Nuremberg next week. I hope to meet you there. My querry is about accessing learning material for embedded C++. It offers quite a good method of developing embedded software using OO methodolgies.

    About myself, I am a graduate of Automotive electronics and I have developed embedded C for PIC and Atmel parts. I am keen to learn ARM micro-controllers. I currently work of an automotive components re-manufacturer of steering subsystems. My typical day is reverse engineering CAN communication networks.
    I have bought a book on Embedded C++ as well but never got free time off my work to learn.

    It would be nice to have a chart on learning resources and your advise on one just starting out.
    Kind regards,
    Gabriel OCAGA
