National Instruments welcomes thought leaders and technical experts from industry and academia, including General Motors, Xilinx and UC Berkeley, to the Graphical System Design Summit, which is sponsored by Altera, Analog Devices, EE Times, Embedded Systems Design, Freescale Semiconductor, Intel and Wind River. The summit takes place during the 12th annual NIWeek, the world’s leading virtual instrumentation conference and exhibition, on Aug. 8 and Aug. 9 in Austin, Texas.
Presentations will demonstrate National Instruments LabVIEW software as an open graphical programming platform for designing, prototyping and deploying embedded systems through case studies and technical “how-to” presentations by experts from companies and universities including Celoxica, Georgia Institute of Technology, General Motors, Maplesoft, UC Berkeley, QNX/Intel and Xilinx.
Engineers and scientists should attend the Graphical System Design Summit to learn more about how graphical system design – using a single open, graphical programming platform to rapidly design, prototype and deploy embedded systems – can transform the way they design products and enhance efficiency in their embedded system designs.
Summit keynote speakers include:
Dr. Edward Lee, leading embedded researcher and professor, UC Berkeley
Jeff Kodosky, NI co-founder, fellow and father of NI LabVIEW
Dennis Bogden, director, electronics integration and systems, GM Powertrain
Dr. Ivo Bolsens, vice president and chief technology officer, Xilinx
Dr. James Truchard, NI co-founder, president and CEO
The Graphical System Design Summit concludes with an Industry Experts Panel, moderated by Brian Fuller, publisher and editor-in-chief of EE Times magazine, which explores the latest trends and future technologies impacting embedded design. Leading industry experts will highlight what engineers can expect from productivity-enhancing tools and Dr. James Truchard will offer a sneak peak into the future of NI design tools.
At the summit, technology experts will share how both experienced embedded designers and domain experts without extensive design experience can use the latest technologies driving embedded design in industries such as automotive, medical/biomedical, industrial control, aerospace/defense and consumer electronics. Through graphical system design, engineers overcome the productivity and time-to-market challenges of traditional embedded development using the flexible LabVIEW graphical programming platform and its connectivity to integrated prototyping hardware in addition to a wide range of I/O and third-party tools to more efficiently design, prototype and deploy embedded systems to commercial-off-the-shelf and custom hardware.
Session topics include algorithm development and verification, digital filter design, rapid prototyping of automotive and medical devices, multicore processing and custom deployments. The technical content of the summit pertains to anyone requiring a more efficient design process.
