Pre-Conference Symposium: Embedded Everywhere: Designing Better Systems, Faster

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This full-day pre-conference symposium on embedded technologies is targeted specifically at engineers who develop embedded systems and work with both hardware and software. The focus is on operating systems, coding, debugging, and testing systems as well as on full stack engineering for connected devices. Attendees will learn techniques and strategies to design better, more reliable and secure embedded systems and discover new concepts, techniques and tools to shave development time and increase performance of their products. They will also hear from engineers who have hard-won knowledge about the trade-offs and challenges associated with any embedded development effort. And what better way to learn, than from other’s mistakes?

Title: Architecting Firmware Applications with Multiple Sensors, Bare Metal up to RTOS
Description: There are various methods for architecting a system that needs to read multiple sensors on a periodic basis. We will go over what some of these architectures look like, the pros and cons of each, and the latest learning from employing FreeRTOS in a recent project for this purpose. Follow along with our demo project (available on GitHub) that makes it easy to handle low data rate, high data rate, and interrupt-driven sensors all at once.

Speaker: Jeffrey Hancock, Senior Product Manager, Mentor Graphics
Title: Power Management in Embedded Systems
Description: The importance of power management in today's embedded designs has been steadily growing as an increasing number of battery-powered devices are developed. Often power optimizations are left to the very end of the project cycle, almost as an afterthought. This session will discuss design considerations that should be made when starting a new power-sensitive embedded design. This includes choosing the hardware with desired capabilities, defining a hardware architecture that will allow the software to dynamically control power consumption, defining appropriate power usage profiles, making the appropriate choice of an operating system and drivers, choosing measurable power goals, and providing these goals to the software development team to track throughout the development process.
