FMC. FMC+. XMC. PC/104 . . . Does the list of Industry Standards ever stop? Like TLAs, probably not!
What are Industry Standards? They are formal specifications that simplify differences in popular applications. The purpose is improved compatibility, performance, and efficiency across embedded systems
How is this achieved? Building consensus across a diverse group of stakeholders. This requires constant research, development and pier review of the particular standard.
One popular event on the standard calendar is Embedded Tech Trends. This event offers suppliers of component, board and system level solutions a forum to discuss the latest technical trends affecting embedded systems standards.
Samtec at Embedded Tech Trends
Embedded Tech Trends educates the industry in target vertical markets on the application of system, board, and switch fabric technologies. Ideas are exchanged and contacts are made across the embedded ecosystem.
Samtec co-sponsored the recent 2019 event. Two of Samtec Industry Standards experts, Burrell Best and Dylan Lang, presented.
Preparing for the Next Wave of High-Speed Fabrics in Embedded Computing
Burrell Best works as a Standards Director and SI Architect at Samtec. He presented on the topic Preparing for the Next Wave of High-Speed Fabrics in Embedded Computing.
In an ever increasing connected world, the embedded systems of tomorrow will be required to process huge amounts of data.
As the future capabilities of the compute devices and memory technologies enabling these systems increases, a new generation of low latency, high speed fabrics will also be required.
The speeds at which these new fabrics must operate will pose real challenges for interconnect manufacturers and system designers. This presentation will discuss some of the fabrics emerging today, and identify some innovations interconnect manufacturers are using to overcome these challenges.
Open Technologies, Open Markets: The Value of Standards Participation
Dylan Lang works as Standards Manager at Samtec. He presented on the topic of Open Technologies, Open Markets: The Value of Standards Participation.
Today’s embedded systems continue to provide flexible design opportunities while driving many bleeding edge technologies.
As a result, the need for embedded systems and standards is greater than ever before. Open-market organizations like VITA facilitate the development of embedded standards.
In the efforts to drive standards from idea to reality, active participation is key both for individual companies and the embedded industry. This presentation will discuss both the challenges facing standard development and the benefits of overcoming them.
