San Francisco, CA--August 24, 1996--Running from September 16-19, 1996 at the San Jose Convention Center (San Jose, CA), the eighth annual Embedded Systems Conference West features the largest ever show floor (80,000 sq. ft.), with more than 220 exhibiting companies. In addition to product categories such as microprocessors and microcontrollers, real-time operating systems, and in-circuit emulators, attendees can see the latest in programming and design validation tools for both traditional embedded applications and emerging, Internet-enabled systems. Dozens of new products will be shown for the first time ranging from calculators and telephones to medical instruments and automated factories.
The Embedded Systems Conference exhibit floor opens at noon on Tuesday, September 17, following a full day of tutorials on Monday. Product introductions include a plug-in module for speech compression and fax/modem applications, a new 32-bit processor designed for consumer electronics and portable communications, and a Java development tool for Internet/Intranet enabled devices. The exhibit floor is also open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 18, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 19.
The exhibition complements a comprehensive technical conference for embedded design, which features more than 100 classes and seven full-day tutorials for all levels of engineers and designers working with embedded systems. Conference topics reflect current interest in the Java programming language for embedded systems as well as the use of DSP and hardware/software co-design. Embedded Java is the focus of the keynote speech on Tuesday, September 17 at 6 p.m. Dr. Jim Mitchell, Sun Fellow and vice president of technology and architecture at JavaSoft, will deliver an address titled "Java in Embedded Systems."
