Embedded World 2017 takes place in a week’s time at the Exhibition Center in Nuremberg, Germany, from March 14-16. The Mentor Graphics stand (Hall A4, Booth 510) will feature the latest from three divisions of the company: Mentor Embedded, Tanner EDA and the PADS PCB design team.

Mentor’s strong presence in the embedded market is also reflected by its presentations in both the conference program and the Exhibitors’ Forum. A full round-up of 10 papers and three forum presentations can be found on the company’s dedicated Embedded World page.

Particular highlights include:

  • a presentation from the company’s well-known embedded software specialist Colin Walls on ‘Writing Reliable Code with MISRA-C‘ (Tuesday, March 14, 3:00-3:30PM, Conference Session 10);
  • a review of the increasingly critical issues raised by design for security in ‘Can We KNOW a System Is Secure’ (Wednesday, March 15, 1:30-2:00PM, Conference Session 21);
  • another dive into security issues presented by the IoT in ‘From End Nodes through Gateways to the Cloud: Securing the Industrial Internet of Things (Thursday, March 16, 4:00-4:30PM, Conference Session 27);
  • a tempting session on ‘How to Jump Start Your ARM-based IoT Chip for Free‘ (Tuesday, March 14, 11:00-11:30AM, Hall 3A, Stand 511); and
  • a look at the hot topic of automotive communications in ‘V2Everything and How It Works‘ (Tuesday, March 14, 4:00-4:30PM, Hall 4, Stand 422).
