TechInsights' ESC Boston 'Build Your Own Embedded System' Sessions to Feature Windows 7 Technology for Specialized Devices & Intel® Atom™ Processor

Hands-on Seminars and Design Kit Give Electronics System Developers Unprecedented Access to Leading-edge Technologies and Implementation Expertise

Aug 25, 2009

TechInsights today announced the details of the "Build Your Own Embedded System" (BYOES) seminars being held during ESC Boston ( September 21-24 at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA. For the first time in electronics industry history, systems developers attending BYOES seminars will take home a custom-configured "design kit" based on Microsoft's newest Windows 7-based operating system, Windows Embedded Standard 2011, and the Intel Atom™ processor. "Never before have embedded system developers been given this level of expert design guidance and access to the industry's leading development technologies," said David Blaza, TechInsights' vice president of Events. "ESC Boston's BYOES track sessions will provide the foundation expected to kick-start many exciting electronic product developments because engineers will take home their configured design kit that they can deploy immediately for their own specific application. Attendees will also be among the first to develop using Windows 7 technologies for specialized devices."

Popular with electronics designers from around the word, TechInsights' BYOES sessions typically have 100 attendees and multiple expert instructors who answer questions in real-time while attendees gain hands-on experience. Unlike other industry seminars in which attendees must take detailed notes and attempt to recreate what has been learned in their home environments, each BYOES attendee leaves with an embedded system design kit that is pre-designed for his or her application.

"We are pleased to join TechInsights and Intel during ESC Boston's 'Build Your Own Embedded System' seminars by providing attendees with access to the advanced Windows 7-based features and functionality of Windows Embedded Standard 2011," said Ilya Bukshteyn, senior director of Windows Embedded Marketing at Microsoft. "Windows Embedded delivers the power of Windows to specialized devices, and we are excited to help fuel innovation among developers as they create next-generation, connected devices with rich user experiences."

Included in ESC Boston's All Access with Hardware pass and available for purchase for $199 with a 3-day pass or $399 with all other event conference packages, the TechInsights' ESC Boston BYOES design kit features include:

  --  General purpose application applicable to most embedded system designs
  --  Low-power, fanless design appropriate for mobile applications
  --  Windows Embedded Standard 2011 operating system delivering the power
      of Windows 7 to specialized devices

  --  The Intel  Atom™ processor built for low power and designed
      specifically for a new wave of Consumer Internet Devices (CIDs) that
      combine the innovation of next generation software and the power of
      the Internet, such as portable navigation devices (PNDs), portable
      media players (PMPs), set-top boxes (STBs) and networked TVs
