I just heard about the ElectroTestExpo2012, which could be of particular interest for my UK friends. The first one will occur February 22 2012 in Gloucester, and the second will be on May 23 in Cambridge.
The idea is to have a tabletop exhibition for engineers to take a close look at leading board test and debug tools. Representatives include: Pickering Interfaces, Tektronix, Geotest, TestWorks, (Seica, Mirtec), Polar Instruments, Pico Technology, Mac Panel, JTAG Technologies, Amfax, Electro Rent and Aeroflex.
Some of the companies present will also make short technology presentations. If you are interested in checking out these free events, head to the website and register soon. They are only allowing 50 attendees at each event.
Are you planning to go? Does your company support your attendance at these types of events? Do you wish there were more of them? Sound off below.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
