embedded world impressively proves that it is rightly the leading trade fair of the international embedded community. More than 720 exhibitors from 39 countries presented the latest trends in embedded technologies, from components, modules and complete systems to operating systems and software, hardware and software tools and services related to embedded systems. From 21st to 23rd June 2022, around 18,000* international embedded experts from 76 countries came to the 20th edition of embedded world. With over 3,900 participations online and in hybrid format, the digital offer of embedded world was also well received.
Full halls, enthusiastic visitors and highly satisfied exhibitors – this is how embedded world 2022 can be summarized. With an outstanding range of products and information and exhibitors and visitors with the best quality and quantity, the events were able to convince all along the line. In the supporting program, current industry topics were dealt with informatively.
“I am overwhelmed by the dynamism, energy and innovative spirit of the embedded industry that have been felt at the fair in the last three days. The security of electronic systems, distributed intelligence, the Internet of Things and solutions for future topics such as e-mobility and energy efficiency – there are so many trends and exhibitors face the pressing questions and already presented marketable products, says Benedikt Weyerer, Director Exhibition embedded world, NürnbergMesse.
embedded world conference
The embedded world Conference also offered three days of knowledge transfer at the highest level. Around 1,000 participants and speakers from 42 countries were able to exchange and educate themselves professionally with top-class experts and colleagues in 196 lectures, 10 classes, three keynotes and six expert panels. “I am pleased that we were finally able to meet again in person and exchange ideas. The atmosphere at the embedded world Conference was extraordinarily good. The conference not only covered proven topics, but also recorded new trends and topics, such as embedded Rust or TinyML and accepted them very well. It is becoming increasingly clear that we not only have to look at technical topics, but also focus more and more on “responsibility”, says Prof. Dr.-Ing. Axel Sikora, Offenburg & Hahn-Schickard University of Applied Sciences and Chairman of the embedded world Conference.
electronic displays conference
The electronic displays Conference was also available in 2022 for two days of knowledge transfer at the highest technical and application-relevant level. It is not only the knowledge platform for international experts, but also the most important European B2B platform for industrial and automotive display technologies and their applications. This year, more than 400 participants and speakers came together to discuss topics such as touch technologies and innovations, automotive displays and interfaces, display uniformity & testing, display systems, display measurements, micro-LEDs, gesture control, augmented and virtual reality as well as HMI and GUI concepts.
“Two years is a very long time in a fast-paced environment such as the development of electronic displays. After this long wait, the electronic displays Conference has finally brought the community back together. The exchange of views on the numerous developments and trends make up the special charm of the edC. Both speakers and visitors greatly appreciated the opportunity to refresh their knowledge and make new contacts,” sums up Prof. Dr. Karlheinz Blankenbach, Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences and Chairman of the Conference Advisory Board.
Top speakers and extensive forum program
Different speakers offered interesting insights into a wide variety of topics this year. The keynotes kicked off on Tuesday was Dr. Matthias Klauda, Executive Vice President R&D in the newly founded business unit “Cross Domain Computing Solutions” of Robert Bosch GmbH. He reported on “brains and nerves of future mobility – I/E architectures of the vehicle and beyond.” Steve Douglass, Corporate Vice President, Research and Development at Lattice Semiconductor, gave his keynote on “Embracing Change: The Mission to Success in the Next Generation of Embedded Design.” The third keynote was given by Patricia Shaw, CEO and founder of Beyond Reach Consulting, on Thursday. She spoke about Responsible AI: From Principles to Practice.
Awarded: embedded award
In a festive setting, on the first day of the fair, the 21st June, a total of six outstanding solutions were awarded the embedded award 2022. In the categories Embedded Vision, Hardware, Software, Safety & Security, Tools and Startup have won:
In the Embedded Vision category, this year the embedded award went to GrAI Matter Labs with Life-Ready AI chip.
GrAI Matter Labs (GML) has developed a novel intelligent data flow computing architecture in which we have combined principles of biological systems, storage-based calculations and massively parallel cores.
NXP Semiconductors was able to secure the award in the hardware category.
NXP Semiconductors’ Voice Intelligent Technology (VIT) enables a voice-controlled user interface with constantly activated Wake Word detection and local commands. VIT is based on state-of-the-art deep learning and speech recognition technologies and is a comprehensive software library with a far-field audio frontend (AFE) that supports up to three microphones, an always-on wake Word engine and a voice command engine, as well as online tools for generating custom wake word models and voice command models.
STMicroelectronics was able to secure victory in the software category with the NanoEdge AI Studio. NanoEdge AI Studio is a machine learning library generator that allows anyone to benefit from AI capabilities that were previously reserved for experts only. With this state-of-the-art all-in-one software tool, users can easily develop an ML-based solution for tiny devices based on an STM32 MCU. The tool provides an integrated workflow, from data collection to marginal inference, including learning on the device.
Safety and security
CodeClinic LL won the Safety & Security category with the Traci Traceability Solution.
Traceability is a key concept in the standards for the functional safety of embedded software. Every safety element and requirement should be traceable until its realization in the design and its verification or validation, a manual process that can lead to errors and gaps. Using a dependency structure matrix (DSM), Traci is an innovative traceability matrix that identifies gaps in the design and verification of requirements, as required by most traditional and new standards such as ISO 22839 and 21434.
The winner in the Tools category is Accemic Technologies GmbH with CEDARtools®.
The key factor for proper testing and efficient debugging is observability – ideally without affecting the system. This is exactly what Accemic Technologies delivers: CEDARtools® uses complex electronics and clever software that generate live digital twin representations of monitored processors to perform live coverage measurements or runtime checks defined in a high-level language.
Dolphin Design with TinyRAPTOR wins in the Startup category.
Tiny RAPTOR is an energy-efficient Neural Processing Unit (NPU) IP platform for TinyML applications. Tiny RAPTOR’s computing power is based on Processing Elements (PE) with a special instruction set that enables a unique near-memory computing function.
