Well, tomorrow is the big day. ESC San Jose 2012 [now part of DESIGN West] runs for 3 days and looks set to be an excellent show for anyone interested in embedded systems software or hardware.
I recently outlined our plans for the Mentor Embedded booth, but we now have more details …
Our booth is set to be a hive of activity, with a continuous program of technical briefings in the theater and hands on workshops. Along with presentations from key partners, the sessions in the theater are titled as follows:
- Embedded Software Development Tools – The Third Way
- Power Management in Embedded Systems
- Harnessing Open Source: Mentor Embedded Linux and Yocto
- Nucleus: The Proven OS for Real Time Applications
The hands-on workshops are an exciting departure for us. You can have the opportunity to try your hand at developing and debugging a Linux application on a PandaBoard using the Sourcery CodeBench IDE. And there is a chance that you could win a PandaBoard to take home!
For me, this show is always exciting, as I get to meet friends and colleagues, old and new. I very much enjoy meeting readers of this blog, so please stop by and say Hi. If you find me and mention this blog, I will give you an exclusive free gift [as long as stocks last].
