Embedded Systems Conference 2005

The 17th edition of Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) concluded today on several notes of success.


The 17th edition of Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) concluded today on several notes of success.
This year’s ESC at San Francisco’s Moscone Center (March 6-10 conference program; March 8-10 exhibition) provided visitors with access to the latest in embedded software and hardware products and their creators by way of more than 350 exhibiting companies on the show floor—with keynote speakers and more than 250 combined training programs and design seminars.

Among new events at ESC in 2005 was “Microprocessor Summit,” a full-day forum for where semiconductor companies introduced new embedded processors, microcontrollers, and digital signal processors to industry representatives. Seven one- or two-day design seminars (also new this year) ranged from digital signal processor performance and network systems to wireless networking.

Products from Texas Instruments and WinSystems covered in this E-Newsletter represent a tiny sampling of products exhibited at ESC 2005.

Change of venue
For the early planners among you, next year’s Embedded Systems Conference has already been announced with more traditional dates of April 2-6, 2006. But there is more news: the event will relocate to the expanded San Jose Convention Center, which ESC outgrew in 2000 and necessitated a move to larger quarters in 2001 that turned out to be San Francisco’s Moscone Center. “After significant expansion and services upgrades to the [San Jose] facility, the Embedded Systems Conference is able to return to its technology roots in Silicon Valley,” says show manager CMP Media LLC.
