Embedded.com has strong ties to UBM Electronics' face-to-face events, including the ESC Summits at DESIGN West and DESIGN East. DESIGN East will take place September 17-20, 2012 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA.

The new Embedded.com will offer community features that enable developers to share their own content, ideas and experiences directly with the community and will bring users into the conversation through moderated discussions, blogs, and a full suite of multimedia content such as video and audio. The most recognized experts in the embedded industry provide curated, design-focused content, columns, and blogs to Embedded.com enabling systems developers to access an array of analysis, forums and archives targeted specifically to this niche.

The main components of Embedded.com include:

  • Home Page - highlighting expert content, blogs, as well as comments from the community.
  • Site Sections - Development, Essentials & Education, Community, Industry Content, Product Reviews, and Development Centers, which pull together all the various information and discussions from across the network.
  • Community & Insights - cultivating deeper engagement and interaction among members.
  • Source Code Library - making code more accessible and allowing developers to upload software code to make it available to their peers.
  • Development Centers - designed to be topic-specific sections where embedded systems developers, designers and engineers can quickly find and exchange information and proven techniques. Each curated center consists of how-to technical design articles, archives, a forum showcasing the debates and discussions from other engineers and colleagues, columns and commentary, new products, industry updates, video, webinars, and technical white papers.
  • Archives - giving developers access to every product and design issue covered since 1988 as well as 20 years of ESC conference educational papers.

"Embedded.com is re-emerging as the habit-forming website for professional embedded systems engineers, developers, and designers seeking a one-stop-shop for continuing technical education," said Colin Holland, Editorial Director of Embedded.com. "I'm particularly excited by the addition of key development centers and interactive community features such as member profiles, the ability to link with peers, store articles to your personal library, and follow comments to continue the many dialogs taking place at any given time. In addition, our very popular forums will be revamped and the downloadable code library upgraded and expanded."

"This is an exciting time for the UBM Electronics and Embedded.com team. We are delighted to be able to provide the embedded community a true home to call their own," said Patrick Mannion, Brand Director, EDN, Test & Measurement World, and Embedded.com at UBM Electronics.
