Select the right embedded platform.

When it comes to embedded applications, selecting an efficient and future-proof processor platform and the right operating system are essential. The success of a product line and being able to distinguish your product from the competition depend on choosing the best hardware and software ecosystem.

This serious decision-making process presents embedded-system engineers in SMEs and major corporations with a myriad of questions. Processor and controller manufacturers and their software partners recognized this quite some time ago. Together with their thirdparty companies, they make up so-called ecosystems, which are the basis for coordinating the interoperative solutions that they sell.

The customer selects the best possible platform for his application and trusts in the interaction of experienced partners and recognized specialists. The result: future reliability and the ability to efficiently port one’s own IP to other platforms. Depicting these ecosystems is the objective of the 1st embedded platforms conference in 2012. But it is not only about the best embedded modular systems. It is also about fundamental issues that pertain to selecting components and system design. electronica is dedicating the embedded platforms conference, which it is organizing with partners ELEKTRONIKPRAXIS and MicroConsult, to these topics.

The definition of embedded platform at the conference:

The basis for embedded applications, which consists of a processor, an operating system, drivers and networking technology.
