IESF 2014: Europe

The conference for addressing design challenges and solutions in the automotive, truck, off highway, and military vehicles industry.

The Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum (IESF) is a global conference program for electrical/electronic design engineers, managers and executives.

Now in its 5th year, IESF Europe is a compelling conference for design engineers, managers and executives concerned with automotive electrical and electronic systems. The automotive industry currently has an insatiable appetite for new technology. ADAS, autonomous vehicles, V2X, Linux, Android and OSS in vehicles are just a few of the buzz words and phrases now in common use and provide an indication of the impact of both electronics and software in this section of industry. IESF Europe 2014 explores the issues that such technologies introduce to the future lives of E/E system design teams and how the technology will be adopted into mass volume vehicle platforms.

Featured Events


Systems Engineering At The Platform Level

Keynote Nick Smith, Mentor Graphics

This presentation explores how Mentor's Capital software models platform connectivity across abstractions. It shows how new technology allows companies to understand the impact of and respond to changes across multiple engineering disciplines.

Keynote: Importance of Systems Engineering for Aston Martin

Alan Bennett will describe the Aston Martin approach to engineering low volume, high luxury sports cars. Using examples from the recently launched Vanquish and the One-77 hyper car, he will highlight some of the challenges faced and how operating at a system level allows efficient delivery of complex networks with limited resources.

An Integrated Systems Engineering Approach - How trace Requirements to Electronics and Software

As electrical systems become ever more sophisticated, leading organizations are adopting a systems engineering approach to EE design. This session presents new integrations between Capital and IBM's Rational tools that support this approach. Requirements captured in Rational DOORS can be natively surfaced within Mentor EE design and implementation tools, allowing designers to understand the context of their work better and giving project managers impact visibility when requirements change. Together with task and test case management, this provides a robust environment that streamlines development processes while minimizing on-going IT costs.

Connected Engineering™

Mentor Graphics provides a unique solution for Connected Engineering™ for the automotive industry. The Connected Engineering™ approach supports OEMs and supply-chain to optimize quality and cost with market leading technologies from start to finish. It covers the entire automotive E/E design flow from Function/Software/ECU/Electrical architecture evaluation through to implementation with AUTOSAR and Android or Linux based applications. Connected Engineering also encompasses Thermal analysis, Process Optimization and wire harness design & manufacturing and finally on-demand vehicle service documentation.

Technical Focus Breakout Tracks

Mentor Graphics will be discussing the latest innovations in these key focus areas:
