Embedded design trends typically revolve around three main ideas: faster data rates, smaller form factors and cost-effective solutions.
Those design trends drive the theme for the 2020 Embedded Tech Trends forum: The Business and Technology Forum for Critical and Intelligent Embedded Systems.
Industry leaders from the media, C-suite and technology suppliers convene annually to share ideas on the latest embedded development trends. Samtec will be sponsoring ETT again in 2020.
Secure On-Board Optical Modules
Ruggedized FireFly™ On-Board Optical Modules are widely used in Mil/Aero applications. Like others in the industry, FireFly™ modules have an MCU and the necessary firmware to communicate with the system ASIC, manage startup procedures and ensure successful ongoing operations.
Growing security concerns are prevalent in embedded applications. To prevent the possibility of an Optical Module being compromised in the field, Samtec has developed a Secure Firmware feature for its FireFly™ On-Board Optical Modules.
Kevin Burt, Optical Product Manager from Samtec, will present details on how Samtec’s secured FireFly firmware solutions fight against unwanted system-level intrusions. Additional information will be presented on Samtec’s ruggedized interconnect portfolio.
Severe Environment Testing
Embedded OEMs demand faster time to market, but with cost-effective, innovative components that drive high-performance. Finding COTS/MOTS solutions is becoming the de-facto standard.
Yet, embedded OEMs – especially in Mil / Aero and Space applications – need confidence that COTS/MOTS components are rugged and highly reliable. How is that possible? Enter Samtec’s Severe Environment Testing (SET).
SET is a new initiative to test Samtec products beyond typical industry standards and specifications.
Driven by demands for high functioning commercial off the shelf (COTS) interconnects, SET has proven beneficial in providing performance confidence.
Stephen Brutscher, Product Marketing Manager at Samtec, will detail how SET differs from product validation and MIL SPEC testing.
He will also detail what SET can provide for ever-changing embedded applications.
