CMP Technology Announces Embedded Systems Conference in India

The World's Leading Brand in Information and Training for the Embedded Community Addresses the Growing India Market With Bangalore Event

Apr 4, 2007

CMP Technology, the worldwide leader in events for the embedded community, today announced the launch of Embedded Systems Conference India (, to be held at NIMHANS Convention Centre in Bangalore, India, October 4-6, 2007.

Like its U.S. and Asia counterparts, this inaugural Embedded System Conference India is destined to become the 'must attend' regional event for the embedded community.

ESC will spotlight India's growing influence in global embedded systems marketplace and the influence that all embedded engineers have on society-at-large -- from consumer electronics devices, to automotive applications, industrial control and medical systems.

ESC India debuts in Bangalore at a propitious time, as this emerging nation enters a historic phase of economic and industrial development. As India's knowledge-based economy continues to thrive and accelerate, local design engineers need better access to critical, high quality, and unbiased engineering, design and technical information. According to the India Semiconductor Association, design starts in India are growing in both the number and complexity -- from 280 in 2005 to a projected 2,173 in 2015, a CAGR of 20%. And semiconductor sales in India are forecasted to grow from $2.82 Billion in 2005 to $36.3 Billion by 2015 -- a CAGR of 29.8%. To meet this rising demand and to help the vendor community connect with this fast-growing pool of decision makers and tap in to new revenue opportunities, CMP is launching Embedded Systems Conference, India.

"India is at an inflection point in its growth and development. It is moving inexorably up the electronics design value-add chain, propelled by rising global and domestic demand for all types of embedded systems," said Richard Wallace, editorial director of CMP technology's electronics group. "As a result, the electronic engineering community in India is quickly moving from its current base in design engineering and software development services toward turnkey systems development. This puts India's embedded market at the forefront of IP-based solutions development and systems architecture consulting.

"As India begins to satisfy much of this demand, there is a growing need for information and training in the integration of hardware and software system design for India's engineers," Wallace, added, noting that CMP Technology has the resources and industry expertise to offer engineers in-depth and unbiased content from the world's industry leaders. ESC India will provide solutions to Indian engineers' toughest design challenges and upgrade their design skills.

The conference program will feature high-quality content, delivered by the industry's most experienced and respected expert faculty from North America, Europe and Asia. ESC India will offer classes and content to system architects, system design engineers and managers, that will enable them to develop and upgrade their design skills from in-depth technical training on embedded design for junior-level engineers, to courses on cutting-edge technology applications and solutions for experienced designers. Attendees will also have the opportunity to speak with their peers and industry experts from around the world, as well as meet face-to-face with strategic suppliers and discover new products and solutions to their most pressing design challenges.

"Intel is pleased to be a platinum sponsor of the inaugural Embedded System Conference in India," said Sanat Rao, Marketing Director for the Embedded Markets Division, Intel. "The embedded market in India continues to grow, and we look forward to the industry coming together to share the latest technology innovations for the market."
