6 Things to See at embedded world

If you want to see the latest and greatest in IoT, embedded world is the place to be. Held in Nuremberg from February 27 to March 1, the trade show is one of the largest of its kind.

To help you navigate the show, we scoured the agenda for must-see items. Here's our list:

1. Fujitsu D3598-B

Check out an ATX mainboard that thrives in environments so hot that it puts traditional off-the-shelf computer boards to shame. The D3598-B from Fujitsu Technology Solutions has an extended operating temperature range of up to 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit). That's as hot as Death Valley in the summer!

Even at that temperature, the board is designed for 24/7 continuous operations under heavy loads (100%) and prolonged lifecycles. It is equipped with the Intel® C612 Chipset and supports the Intel® Xeon® Processor Series E5-26xx and E5-15xx, as well as Intel® Core i7 processors.

Visit Fujitsu at booth 2-110.

2. GrammaTech Inc.

Come ready to learn from these GrammaTech presentations and lectures:

Static Analysis ++: Discover new static analysis technologies to track untrusted data sources, concurrency checkers for multi-threaded applications, and domain checkers to validate architectural rules and dynamic validations.

Combining Static and Dynamic Analysis: Learn how to fuse these analysis techniques together to produce higher-quality software more efficiently.

Stopping Buffer Overflows: Memory corruption problems are abundant in open source and commercial software systems. Found out how they lead to security vulnerabilities, and how to diagnose them during testing and runtime.

Visit GrammaTech at booth 4-423.

3. Acromag

Ever more powerful processing chips—like the sixth generation of the Intel® Xeon® processor—and high-speed serial interconnects have given rise to a rebirth of the 3U VME/VPX form factor.

Acromag's new VPX6600 uses the compact 3U VPX form factor to achieve the reduced size, weight, and power (SWaP) needed to run rugged, mission-critical applications. Better yet, the processor boards are available in air- or conduction-cooled modules.

Visit Acromag at booth 3-360.

4. Congatec AG

Do you have a graphic-intensive, low-power application, say, in the IOT multimedia space? Congatec's SMARC 2.0 credit card-size form factor modules provide a rich choice of graphics, camera, sound, network, and optional wireless interfaces.

Powering these modules are the low-power Intel Atom® processor, Celeron® processor and Pentium® processor with high-performance Intel® Gen9 graphics. Don't forget to check out the enhanced security execution.

Visit Congatec at booth 1-358.

5. Intel

Here's a sampling of the topics Intel will discuss at embedded world:

Toward the Zero-Delay Supply Chain Solution: Hardware and software systems are providing integrated package-level tracking and security within a smart city.

Certification Aspects of Connected Cars: To achieve stringent safety and reliability certifications, autonomous car providers will need artificial intelligence, computer vision, high-speed in-vehicle networking, and fail-safe hardware and software.

Hardware Deceleration—The Challenges of Speeding Up Software: Learn the techniques and mechanisms that allow hardware accelerators to actually accelerate, rather than decelerate, a system.

Visit Intel at booth 1-338.


Editor-in-Chief Kenton Williston will cover the show in person. To keep up with our live coverage of the event, be sure to follow on Twitter.

Kenton Williston will also attend the Intel® IoT Networking Event on Monday, February 26. If you are an Alliance Member, look for our table at the event.

Last but not least, we are also hosting a drawing on the embedded world show floor. Stop by our booth for the chance to win an Intel® Core i7 NUC and a Samsung HMD Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality Headset with Motion Controllers (a $1,400 combined value).

Visit at booth 3A-507.
