The Embedded World 2020 Expo and Conference in Nuremberg will take place next week (Feb. 25-27) and remains the largest global event for the embedded development community. Siemens and Mentor, A Siemens Business, will exhibit their latest innovations in Hall 4 on Stand 544 (details on how to register to attend Embedded World for free are at the end of this article).

Mentor’s embedded runtime solutions will be one highlight. These include the Nucleus Real-Time Operating System (RTOS), which has already been deployed in over three billion embedded devices and now supports RISC-V-based systems. Other technology demos will include enterprise class embedded Linux, heterogeneous multicore software, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) covering the needs of industrial, IoT, medical and other markets.

Featured demos

  • High-performance scalable real-time operating system (RTOS) for RISC-V architecture
  • Debian-based Enterprise Class Embedded Linux
  • Heterogeneous Multicore Software: OpenAMP, Linux®, Safety Certified RTOS, & Graphics
  • Machine Learning: Enabling AI on the Edge with Rich Cloud Connectivity

Automotive Session

Electronik Automotive Magazine will introduce Mentor’s Armin Lichtblau, Embedded/AUTOSAR Domain Lead, Integrated Electrical Systems group, for a presentation on Safety and Security in AUTOSAR on the conference’s VIP Stage. The session will take place on Tuesday, February 25 from 2:00-4:00pm

Lichtblau will discuss automotive mega-trends and electrification which require safety and security in embedded systems and the electronic/electrical (E/E) architecture of vehicles. His session will consider car-to- grid communication where sensitive data is exchanged and therefore requires protection. Applications here for driver functionality and safety include memory protection, fraud protection and the strict separation of critical car control and user interaction tasks. Lichtblau will discuss safety concepts, particularly in AUTOSAR Adaptive that allow for the implementation of extra high security and safety measures throughout the E/E architecture. The presentation will conclude with a look at new technologies for validation and verification that enable reliable embedded software deployment in today’s vehicles.
