The editors of the "Nerd magazine for embedded developers" and organizer of the embedded world Conference, DESIGN&ELEKTRONIK, and the Medizin+elektronik provided exciting facts in three lectures and a panel discussion on the topic RISC-V vs. Arm at embedded world 2019.
"IoT-Kits on the test bench - fiction and truth", "Efficiency of power supplies - an uncomfortable truth" and "Touched out? - The results of the DESIGN&ELEKTRONIK study Embedded HMI Systems" were the titles of the three lectures given by the D&E editorial staff, which generated a great deal of interest in the exhibitor forum in Hall 3A.
Medizin+elektronik editor Melanie Ehrhardt also gave a lecture on "Artificial Intelligence & Medicine: Opportunities, Risks and Limits" in front of a sold-out audience.
D&E editor-in-chief Frank Riemenschneider also moderated a top-class panel discussion on the subject of "RISC-V". RISC-V is an open source instruction set architecture that can be used free of charge thanks to the BSD license. The project began in 2010 at the University of California, Berkeley, and is already being co-developed and promoted by hardware and software developers worldwide, including leading semiconductor manufacturers. In addition, a large community has formed for the development of the ecosystem around the CPU architecture. The panel discussion in Hall 3A not only focused on the state of the art, but also examined the advantages and disadvantages of this open architecture.
Four established international experts discussed the RISC-V topic: They were Cesare Garlati, Chief Security Strategist, prpl Foundation, Markus Levy, Head of AI and Machine Learning Technologies, NXP Semiconductors, Ted Marena, Director, RISC-V Ecosystem, Western Digital and Tim Whitfield, VP Strategy, Embedded and Automotive, Arm.
