ESC keynoter sees 'arms race' with cyber attackers Joerg Borchert, vice president of chip card and security ICs at Infineon Technologies North America, will take the stage at ESC Boston later this month to deliver a message to embedded systems designers: you are in an arms race with potential attackers.
Consumer meets medical in ESC teardown Engineers will get a glimpse into the future of personal health care devices at DesignMed 2011 where experts will tear down a Nonin Onyx II 9560 fingertip pulse oximeter, a system that helped pioneer the emerging field. The teardown is one of a handful of sessions at the ESC Boston event exploring the horizon in personalized medicine.
Scopes cover hi-speed/hi-fidelity domains at ESC Tektronix, Inc. has introduced a mixed-domain oscilloscope that delivers the functionality of an scope and a spectrum analyzer in a single instrument. And Rohde & Schwarz has enhanced its real-time digital trigger scope for analyzing extremely small signals with high fidelity. Both companies will exhibit their wares at the Embedded Systems Conference, Boston (Sept. 26 to 29).
Silicon's relevant after all! My experience with the ViewSonic gTablet and its fascinating, hacker-like Android ecosystem, combined with the recent purchase of Motorola Mobile by Google have me thinking that maybe - just maybe - silicon may not be irrelevant after all. Embedded systems gaining secure footing Embedded system designers today optimize mainly for performance and footprint, but with the rise of Internet-enabled devices, security has become the third leg of the embedded design process. As a result, embedded design organizations are adding security specialists that can both architect and mentor on implementing best-practices to meet security requirements. This heightened focus on security in embedded systems design is expected to emerge as one of the main themes at next month's ESC Boston.
