IHS GlobalSpec’s Electronic Components & Product Design online event provided

Industrial professionals took advantage of these learning and networking
opportunities from the convenience of their desktops, without having to budget
for travel expenses or lose time away from the office.

“Industrial professionals who attended our Electronic Components & Product
Design online event heard from experts on some of the latest trends shaping
the electronics industry and connected with leading suppliers on cutting-edge
innovations and technologies in the marketplace,” said Donna Lewis, director
of e-publishing and e-events for IHS GlobalSpec. “Our exhibitors took
advantage of this unique opportunity to share their products and solutions
with a highly engaged audience.”

The event was sponsored by ECIA, the Electronic Components Industry
Association. Speakers and topics included:

  *More Effective Design Approach for Power-sensitive Embedded Systems
    This presentation looked at how software has become the key contributor to
    minimizing power consumption in embedded devices. Historically, power was
    purely a hardware issue, but with sophisticated designs, often for
    hand-held, battery-powered equipment, a system-wide approach is needed.
    Presented by Colin Walls, embedded software technologist, Mentor Graphics
  *The Future of NOR Flash
    This presentation provided an understanding of how NOR Flash has evolved
    from a bus interface and offered a performance perspective and comparison
    with other memory technologies. Future innovations that will keep NOR
    memories relevant for the foreseeable future were also discussed.
    Presented by Cliff Zitlaw, fellow, Spansion Inc.
  *Trends in Wireless Connectivity
    This presentation offered a review of popular wireless protocols with
    their latest trends and updates, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and ZigBee.
    Presented by Joe Tillison, director of business development, Western
    Americas, Bluegiga Technologies
  *Multicore Software Development for Embedded Systems
    This presentation was an overview of the various software development
    techniques, processes, and challenges for multicore processing in the
    embedded systems space. Software programming models, embedded multicore
    software architectures, multicore system integration and debugging topics
    were also discussed. Practical advice was given based on industry case
    Presented by Robert Oshana, director, software research and development,
    Freescale Semiconductor
