It would be physically impossible to attend all the conferences and exhibitions organized across the electronics universe, so here is a list of events for 2012 compiled on the basis of only one per month.
I couldn't find anything super-exciting for May so I have left it blank. Future Horizons often organizes its International Electronics Forum in that month, which i have attended in the past. Or maybe I will take a month off!
Readers are welcome to suggest events in May – or any other month – that they think it would be good to attend.
The events in March and October are organized by UBM Electronics, the publisher of EE Times.
International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Las Vegas Jan. 10 to 13 www.cesweb.org
International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) San Francisco Feb. 19 to 23 www.isscc.org
Embedded World in Nuremberg (http://www.embedded-world.de/en/) is just creeping in to February in 2012 (28 to 1st March) and once again clashes with the Mobile World Congress (http://www.mobileworldcongress.com/) in Barcelona.
Not to be missed are the RTECC events, the Real-Time & Embedded Computing Conferences that showcase AMD, Intel, MathWorks and other industry leaders. Kickoff is January 17th at the Santa Clara Convention Center - and May 15th is Boston RTECC...rtecc.com. Thanks for the opportunity to bring an important road show to our community, best regards ~ Sally
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.
