Meet the experts on multi-core development
EMCC - Embedded Multi-Core Conference
A special event on embedded multi-core technology for the automotive industry
MUNICH, 20-22 June, 2017

About the Embedded Multi-Core Conference

Automated Driving from level one to five. The “always connected” car. Electrification.
Such fundamental technological changes have a huge impact on the E/E architecture of future cars. High performance multi- and many-core processors will form the basis of embedded control units and enable a lot of new opportunities. But how can we develop innovative and comprehensive solutions, while current project challenges still exist?

That is why in 2015 the Embedded Multi-Core Conference (EMCC) was established as a platform initiated “from the industry for the industry” featured by Elektrobit, Infineon, iSYSTEM, and Timing-Architects. At June 20th – 22nd 2017, we will meet for the 3rd time in Munich to share best practices, provide insights in new approaches, and commonly discuss how to realize the car of the future on a technical level.

Join us for three full days in a cooperative environment, listen to high-class speeches, participate at a technical multi-core workshop, and connect with thought leaders, architects, experts, and engineers facing equal project challenges on system- and ECU level.
