Embedded System Conference offers design solutions to engineers in Silicon Valley

ESC will feature solutions to design challenges, information, and current technology across a wide array of areas relevant to design of embedded systems.


The Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) will be in San Jose, CA, from May 2-5, 2011. The conference features solutions to design challenges, new technologies, and informational tracks designed to keep skills up to date within the realm of embedded systems. Free hands-on training will happen live during the ESC expo will feature hands-on training courses with hot technologies lead by well known companies and speakers. ESC also features events in Chicago, IL and Boston, MA.

ESC Silicon Valley will feature a keynotes from Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple Computer, Inc. and Chief Scientist at Fusion-io; Dan O’Dowd, President and Chief Executive Officer of Green Hills Software; Jeri Ellsworth, American Entrepreneur and self-taught Computer Chip Designer.

The Embedded Connectivity Zone, on the ESC Silicon Valley show floor, is an opportunity for companies to demonstrate their solutions that will educate and help design engineers design better connected devices. ESC theater panel discussions will address key challenges that the design engineers face and complement the demonstrations at pods in the pavilion.

To help meet the needs of designers, designated a "Board Zone" at ESC Silicon Valley. In addition to seeing all the products and technologies that help embedded developers incorporate this necessary subsystem, this is a place where the experts will convene to help get toughest display-related questions answered.

Various tracks include: Architecture Design; Challenges and Solutions in Embedded Designs; Connectivity and Security; Debugging and Optimizing; HMI and Multimedia; Linux, Android, and Open Source; Managing and Process; Memory, Microcontrollers, and Programmable Logic in Embedded Design; Quality Design and Intellectual Property; Remote Monitoring and Wireless Networking; RTOS and Real Time Software; Safety Design; Systems Architecture; and Windows for Embedded Systems.

ESC Silicon Valley is co-locating with the Multicore Expo to provide more quality content and opportunities.

Multicore Expo

The 6th annual Multicore Expo will take place in combination with the ESC event. The Multicore Expo Zone will consist of a wide variety of exhibits from leaders in the multicore industry, providing attendees with the opportunity to see multicore technology in action as well as network with leading experts in multicore hardware and software implementations. The pavilion will also contain a theatre, open to all attendees, where sponsors will deliver presentations that highlight specific multicore technologies.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
