Notwithstanding all the free swag you can grab up at EE Live! and the Embedded Systems Conference, engineers consistently say the No. 1 reason they attend the show is to see new technologies. Or better yet, see cool products they didn't even know existed.
This year's expo, April 1 through April 3, won't disappoint, with over 200-plus top tier vendors
showcasing debugging software tools, processors, SoCs, test and measurement equipment, development kits and tools, and more.
Here's a sneak peek at five of the unusually buzz-worthy new products targeted at the embedded space that will be on display. Check them out here, and then plan to join us at the EE Live! Expo
and be among the first to see and get some hands-on time with these products and more!
Note: You can still purchase an EE Live! 2014 All Access pass or register for a free Expo pass. Make sure to follow updates about EE Live!'s other sessions, programs, and announcements on the conference's social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+.
