On June 8th the annual general meeting of the Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies – SGET – took place. After the resignation of the chairman Wolfgang Eisenbarth last year, a successor was sought and found.
The Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies, SGET, develops specifications and standards for embedded computing. On June 08th, it held its triennial annual general meeting, including board elections, and elected a new chairman. Last year Wolfgang Eisenbarth resigned from his position for personal reasons.
Ansgar Hein (independent) was elected as the new chairman. All other board members were re-elected: Christian Eder (Congatec) as first vice chairman, Martin Unverdorben (Kontron) as second vice chairman, Martin Steger (iesy) as treasurer, and Mark Swiecicki (Waypoint Projects) as secretary. Eilyn Kadow (independent) was confirmed in her position as SGET auditor. The team will continue to guide the association's fate until 2024 with the new chairman.
The SGET would like to thank its outgoing chairman Wolfgang Eisenbarth for his commitment. »During his tenure, his work has transformed SGET and positioned it for the future. I am honored to represent the interests of all SGET members and to work with experts of the industry,« said Ansgar Hein, new chairman.
With a total of five working groups from the areas of hardware and software, the SGET offers an exciting portfolio of open standards for embedded technologies. In addition to standards that are successfully established on the market, such as Qseven and SMARC, the SGET is currently focusing on Open Standard Modules (OSM). With OSM, SGET is creating a new standard for fully automated assembly, soldering and testing of computer modules.
»With the publication of the specification for OSM in December 2020, we have reached an important milestone. The first OSM boards are already in development, and we have also been able to gain new members with the OSM working group,« Ansgar Hein summarizes.
