Even though Embedded World 2021 has gone digital, the opportunities for education are just as plentiful.

The digital version of Embedded World 2021 is currently underway and lots of interesting topics have already been discussed. If you weren’t aware, EW2021 offers all facets of embedded design: software, hardware, and tools that make your life as a developer or product engineer easier, more efficient, and more fun.

One topic that’s been getting more attention during recent years is software quality and the safeguarding of (sensitive) data. There’s a lot that can be said about software quality, about its best practices, and new trends. If you’re interested in this topic, check out the presentation Embedded Software Quality Trends.

On Tuesday Logic Technology collaborated with Mindmotiv, and together with Philip Mayer they talked about functional testing with MATLAB and Simulink models. Whether it’s large-scale continuous model testing or highly agile small-batch end-of-line tests, with the right tools it becomes easy as pie. As attendees began to ask questions, a spontaneous and insightful discussion arose. Virtual exhibitions can have their advantages, so it seemed, as people from all over the world joined in the discussion. Don’t worry in case you missed it, we’ve already made sure you can watch it back on YouTube.

Wednesday is all about safeguarding critical data. As Logic teams up with Tuxera, new solutions are explained on how to make sure your embedded design can handle unexpected situations like power loss or application crash. The inner workings of new tools like the Reliance Edge and Reliance Nitro are explained, giving new insights and food for thought for any embedded developer’s future designs.

Thursday at 3PM CET is all about Graphical User Interface creation. How do you keep up with all the iterations in a world where UX expectations keep increasing? How do you prevent having to redesign your whole user experience when all you actually want to achieve is a small change in function or design? Gilles Hendrikx from Logic Technology and Garry Clarkson from Crank have got you covered! Interested? Register at our website for a free ticket! But hurry, as tickets are limited.

You can also register for free for an interesting presentation on Friday on how the Belgian company Rombit managed to fast forward its product launch by adapting its current products in an agile way in order to keep up with the rapidly changing (Covid) circumstances. How they did it? Spoiler alert: You don’t have to re-invent the wheel, just realign it.
