Embedded platforms get more integrated, mobile
Embedded systems are more tightly integrating hardware, and software and mobile devices are more a part of embedded system design teams’ considerations, according to a National Instruments report discussed Feb. 27 at Embedded Systems World in Nuremberg, Germany.
Embedded systems are more tightly integrating hardware, and software and mobile devices are more a part of embedded system design teams’ considerations. These are among trends identified Feb. 27 at Embedded Systems World in Nuremberg, Germany. The trends are outlined in the “2012 Embedded Systems Outlook” report from National Instruments (Nasdaq: NATI). The report advises how next-generation embedded systems are influencing embedded control and monitoring applications in industries including energy, industrial control, life sciences, and transportation. The NI report said that with:
• Embedded platforms, technology providers are helping design teams build complex embedded systems faster by developing platforms that combine hardware with an integrated software framework
• Reconfigurable computing, advanced embedded control and monitoring systems are driving an increase in designs that make the most of programmable logic
• Mobile devices and the cloud, design teams are taking advantage of the proliferation of new mobile devices and cloud technologies within next-generation embedded systems
• Embedded systems, smaller design teams around the world are creating a more efficient way for companies to bring disruptive innovations to market
• Ever-changing requirements and standards for embedded systems, design teams are adopting a “software first” mind-set for upgrading products over time, to “future proof” designs through software

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
