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, 28-30 June, 2016

About the Embedded Multi-Core Conference

Multi- and many-core processors will be the technology that forms the basis of future control units. The technical questions arising with tightly coupled parallel processing and dynamic behavior are big challenges for the entire automotive industry. The tailored program of the EMCC Munich will address the successful migration from single- to multi-core technology and the integration of the new technology into the development process. You will learn how to manage the new complexity and challenges like real-time requirements, robustness and compatibility to existing software architectures in order to enable safe and dependable software solutions for the automotive industry.

The Embedded Multi-Core Conference is a unique forum that brings together the experts in the field of automotive embedded multi-core systems. A consortium of four partners, Elektrobit, Infineon, iSYSTEM and Timing-Architects, brought this event to life specifically for experts facing the challenges posed by multi-core technology in order to exchange their views and experiences.
