Title Lifecycle-costing and hidden costs in embedded systems
Speaker Ulrich Ermel, Director New Business Development, PULS
Abstract This presentation will guide you through a complete Lifecycle-Costing model of an embedded system. It will discuss all three major Lifecycle-Stages (Design / Usage and Removal) and provide insights into cost effective designing (Buy vs. Build) and detailed views on minimizing running costs (Obsolescence, Efficiency and Upgrading). Last but not least system removal cost will be discussed in order to enable a sustainable and ecofriendly solution. Dependencies between all three major Life-Cycle-Stages are presented and countermeasured.


Time 11h30 - 12h00
Title Buy vs Build
Speaker Wolfgang Heinz-Fischer, International Business Development, TQ-Systems
Abstract Using modules alleviates many of the challenges facing engineers and project managers when designing complex applications. Some of the obstacles and costs associated with designing complex computing platforms - certification, design and development time and production costs - can be overcome by using an off-the-shelf embedded modules.


Time 12h00 - 12h30
Title Prevent, detect and fix lifecycle challenges of embedded systems
Speaker Oliver Hoffmann, SiliconExpert
Abstract Embedded Solutions are more than the sum of their parts. They live longer than until the first obsolescence among their parts. This presentation talks about avoiding to embed future deprecation into your Embedded Systems. You will learn how SiliconExpert supports you to prevent, detect and fix lifecycle challenges.


Time 12h30 - 13h00
Title Open Standards for Embedded Computing Technologies
Speaker Mark Swiecicki, SGET
Abstract SGET, Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies is an independent organization with more than 50 members of the embedded industry. The main goal is to create new open and freely available specifications defined by the members of this industry group. Up ’til now SGET created standards like Qseven, SMARC and eNUC. The presentation will offer an insight to the standards and the work of the SGET team. SGET is represented on the electronica with a booth in A6-549.
