Product Teardowns Bring Embedded Technology Out of the Box at Embedded Systems Conference Boston

Embedded Systems Boston provides 'Edutainment' with Live Teardowns that Reveal the Inner Workings of Popular Consumer Products

Aug 15, 2007

CMP Technology today announced its highly anticipated series of live product teardowns and other special events at the 2007 Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Boston, running September 18 to the 21 at the Hynes Convention Center. These product teardowns will give conference attendees unprecedented insight into the inner workings of today's hottest technologies that push the boundaries of system design.

  Live Product Teardown Events:

  --  The California Cars Initiative will pull apart a Toyota Prius to
      examine the systems that compose the hybrid vehicle.  Be there to view
      what allows this popular vehicle to average 55 mpg.  In addition to
      the teardown, ESC Boston will hold the first East Coast conversion of
      the Prius to a plug-in hybrid car.

  --  Discover the Vectrix MAXI-Scooter during the live Vectrix teardown
      sponsored by Microchip.  During this teardown viewers will view the
      embedded systems that power the popular Vectrix scooter, a
      high-powered electric two-wheel vehicle with the added benefits of low
      running costs, low noise and zero emissions.

  --  Learn how one of the newest and most advanced fitness devices, the
      Nike Triax Elite, is able to offer a combined heart-rate monitor,
      accurate electronic pedometer, and data upload capability.  Sponsored
      by Texas Instruments, whose MSP 430 low-power microcontroller helps
      power the device, the Triax teardown promises to reveal embedded
      technology of the future.

  --  CMP's Semiconductor Insights will put the spotlight on counterfeiting
      with a teardown of an iPhone clone to see how its contents compare to
      the real deal.  Additionally, Semiconductor Insights will share its
      analysis of counterfeit NAND flash devices that were alleged to be
      from Toshiba, Samsung, and IM Flash Technologies.

  Other Special Events

  --  ESC Boston will give attendees a chance to be photographed with the
      Intel Chopper, a custom built embedded technology-based motorcycle by
      Orange County Choppers.

  --  Fun and networking are the name of the game at ESC's Casino Night
      Party.  This event will feature food, drinks as well as poker and
      blackjack on a night to mingle with industry peers.
