Dynamic Memory Allocation & Fragmentation in C & C++
Tuesday, March 14 | 10:30-11:00

In C and C++, it can be very convenient to allocate and de-allocate blocks of memory as and when needed. This is certainly standard practice in both languages and almost unavoidable in C++. However, the handling of such dynamic memory can be problematic and inefficient. For embedded – generally real time – applications, ignoring the issues is not an option.


Self-Testing in Embedded Systems
Tuesday, March 14 | 11:30-12:00

Listen to a review of options for self-testing that are open to the embedded software developer. Testing algorithms for memory are outlined and some ideas for self-monitoring software in multi-tasking and multi-CPU systems are discussed.


Writing Reliable Code with MISRA-C
Tuesday, March 14 | 3:00-3:30

Colin Walls will illustrate how MISRA-C may be employed, using examples to show how the guidelines may be applied to any safety-critical software, not just automotive applications.


Can Uncertified Microprocessors Be Used to Build Certified Systems?
Wednesday, March 15 | 11:30-12:00

This session explores the considerations necessary to determine if a microprocessor is appropriate for safety applications, and how the overall system design can serve to improve the robustness of the system. It will also explore how to defend the designer’s decision that the microprocessor is appropriate for use in the system being designed.


Web Services Layer for Embedded Devices
Wednesday, March 15 | 12:00-12:30

Get an introduction to the concept of Web Service layer for Embedded Devices that can ease the pain for embedded developers and also make it easy for the enterprise developers to interact with the embedded device.


Can We KNOW a System is Secure?
Wednesday, March 15 | 1:30-2:00

Learn about state-of-the-art techniques for defining and verifying security, as well as how to manage new security threats as they emerge both during design and once the system is in production.


Embedded Virtualization in the Age of Heterogeneous Devices
Wednesday, March 15 | 2:30-3:00

Felix Baum discusses requirements for a hypervisor’s capability to support heterogeneous compute environments and highlight solutions for system partitioning and consolidation, including key issues and challenges of developing and debugging software on these complex systems.


Building a Reference Design for a Secure IoT Gateway
Thursday, March 16 | 10:30-11:00

This session examines the use of an ARM Cortex-A9 multicore SoC platform to build a secure IoT reference design employing a defense-in-depth strategy. A complete edge to cloud and mobile IoT deployment will be discussed.


Industrial IoT Platform for Edge Devices
Thursday, March 16 | 1:30-2:00

Hear 5 major challenges/requirements faced by developers at Edge Tier and how they should be core consideration when defining a Software Platform for (Industrial) IoT:

  • Cloud Connectivity (Edge Tier connecting to Platform Tier)
  • Life Cycle Management (Power Management, Provisioning, Firmware Upgrades, Applying Security Patches etc.)
  • Convergence of Functionality (I/O, Industrial Control, HMI etc.)
  • Security (Secure Boot, Anti-Temper, Crypto Services etc.)
  • Safety (IEC 61508, IEC 62304 etc.)


From End Nodes through Gateways to the Cloud: Securing the Industrial Internet of Things
Thursday, March 16 | 4:00-4:30

This presentation looks at the combination of open source software and real-time operating systems running together on the same hardware platform. Approaches for ‘designing in’ security on the hardware will be discussed as well as software-enabled security.
