More Than 150 Exhibitors to Showcase Innovative Technologies at Embedded Systems Conference Boston

Attendees to View the Embedded Systems Industry's Most Revolutionary Technologies

Sep 13, 2007

CMP today announced that Embedded Systems Conference Boston 2007 (, part of TechMash 2007, will bring together more then 150 exhibitors to showcase the industry's most advanced technologies on one exhibition floor. Hosted at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston from September 18-21, ESC is the industry's largest international embedded technical conference and exhibition. Each attendee will have access to leading vendors and the chance to interact with live product demonstrations and gain valuable insight into the most cutting edge technologies.

  Exciting product demos on the exhibition floor will include:

  -- Amphenol's ( XCede connector platform, which
     is designed to support 20+ Gbits/s performance. Well suited for use in
     datacom, telecom, storage, and wireless equipment, the connector
     reportedly meets or exceeds the standards set for Ethernet, SONET/SDH,
     PCIe, Fibre Channel, and Infiniband, and it features a highly reliable
     press-fit attachment.

  -- QNX Software Systems' ( access to the source code
     of its QNX Neutrino real-time operating system (RTOS). QNX has made
     source code for its award-winning, microkernel-based OS available for
     free download. The first source release includes the code to the QNX
     Neutrino microkernel, the base C library, and a variety of board
     support packages (BSPs) for popular embedded and computing hardware.

  -- Nordic Semiconductor ( and ANT ANTDKT3
     ( wireless sensor network
     Development Kit. By using the kit, engineers avoid the design
     complexity traditionally associated with wireless sensor networking and
     are able to build a functioning 2.4GHz wireless sensor network within
     minutes to test their specific applications.

  -- The first software analysis engine based on Boolean satisfiability
     (SAT) by Coverity Inc. ( The engine
     leverages a highly accurate representation of software, or Software DNA
     Map, to automatically identify complex defects in source code with
     unmatched precision and accuracy. By helping software development teams
     find and eliminate these potentially costly defects, Coverity SQS
     accelerates the ability of companies to deliver secure, high quality

  -- Quadros Systems' ( VisualRTXC design tool. This
     powerful visual design environment works with the RTXC Quadros RTOS to
     dramatically reduce development time for embedded systems. It offers a
     highly intuitive user interface and high-level intelligent design
     objects that are tightly coupled to the underlying kernel architecture.
     The result is an easy-to-use, powerful design tool that allows the
     developer to rapidly move between design concepts and generated C code.

  -- Renesas ( and Express Logic's ThreadX
     ( operating system platform has been ported to
     SH-2A series 32-bit microcontrollers, enabling fast-response control
     for embedded system applications. ThreadX now supports the SH-2A series
     MCUs, providing a high-performance operating platform for applying
     these fast, powerful devices in embedded systems.

  -- Ampro Computers, Inc.'s ( RuffSystem embedded
     computer based on the industry's most rugged EBX SBC. Because the
     LittleBoard 800 Pentium M SBC is rugged by design, the resulting
     RuffSystem computer is truly rugged. This announcement means that
     system OEMs in military, transportation, avionics, and factory
     automation markets can speed their time-to-market by using a
     fully-integrated subsystem up to 1.4 GHz rather than designing their
     own subsystem.

"Attendees will have the opportunity to not only view and hear the latest industry news at the conference sessions and keynotes, but also the chance to interact with some of the industry's most exciting new technologies," said David Blaza, Publisher Embedded Systems Design. "With more than 150 exhibitors, there are limitless possibilities for industry veterans and new comers alike to experience what is happening with today's embedded systems."

Embedded Systems Boston exhibition hours are Wednesday, September 19 from 2:00pm - 7:00pm and Thursday, September 20 from 11:00am - 6:00pm.
