Prototyping Next-Generation Embedded System Designs - FREE Session!
(Co-presented with Xilinx)
Wednesday, May 4 from 2:00 to 3:00pm, Room D
Track / Format: Sponsored Sessions / 60-Minute Sponsored Session
Description: With prototyping, systems engineers can quickly determine the feasibility of projects, get to market faster, and develop an ecosystem of partners ahead of the final silicon/system. At this session, see how Xilinx used its FPGAs to prototype the upcoming Zynq-7000 extensible processing platform and started building an ecosystem of partners, such as National Instruments. Also learn how NI began prototyping its next-generation embedded systems by porting its RTOS and device drivers to Xilinx’s new architecture.
Thursday, May 5 from 2:00 to 3:00pm, Room F1/F2
Track / Format: HW and Platform Design / 60- Minute Session
Description: This fast-paced session will provide a system, hardware and software view on some critical technologies for your next embedded system. The leading industry experts will discuss everything from stacked silicon interconnect technology, passive silicon-based interposers, microbumps and through-silicon vias (TSV), and graphical system design software tools. This session will show you new technologies on the horizon and explain some of the fundamentally differenciating technologies in embedded tools today. Plan to leave this session wanting to incorporate some of the most cutting edge tools and devices in the global embedded market.
Thursday, May 5, 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., Room J4
Track / Format: DSP, Communication, and Control Design / 60-Minute Session
Description: As today’s embedded systems become increasingly complex, the demand for advanced control is pushing the boundaries of what traditional platforms can provide. Highly sophisticated applications, such as autonomous robots, industrial machines, and medical devices require control systems that can combine deterministic control with high-level intelligence and easily integrate with a wide variety of sensors and actuators. In this presentation, we’ll explore the latest technologies for implementing advanced control and examine an example of how one energy management company reduced energy consumption by 30 percent by implementing advanced control that goes well beyond PID.
