Embedded Software Development
As time-to-market pressures increase, the need to embrace and exploit productive, efficient and smart software development rises. Learn the latest techniques and technologies in debug, multicore software, Linux/Android operating systems, compilation tools, languages, methodologies, optimization, performance tuning and exception handling. See track sessions »
Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is evolving into a vast system of small, single-purpose, low-power devices that must communicate reliably and efficiently. In the IoT track, learn about sensor fusion, the integration of big and small data, IFC, distributed analytics, communications protocols and the challenges of wearables systems design. See track sessions »
Networking, Infrastructure & Servers
The rise of big data has focused attention squarely on enterprise networking and servers, including those deployed in cloud infrastructure. In the Networking Infrastructure & Servers track, sessions will focus on how ARM technology-based systems and subsystems can be optimized-for-purpose, from networking, IFC, and HPC to storage server platforms, heterogeneous systems and open source systems. See track sessions »
Automotive, Industrial & Functional Safety
Nowhere has electronics design revolutionized product development more than in the automotive and industrial sectors. Get insight and instruction into some of the most interesting engineering challenges of today, including real-time signal processing, machinery control, embedded vision, functional safety and robotics. See track sessions »
Graphics technologies are being adopted in new applications areas by engineering teams hungry for competitive edge. This ARM TechCon track focuses on the latest insights into mobile GPU, GPU compute, power efficient GPU and virtual reality technologies. See track sessions »
Silicon Design
The march to ultra-deep submicron nodes continues unabated, increasing engineering teams’ need for insights into design productivity so they can remain competitive. The Silicon Design track offers the latest information into verification, performance tuning, mixed-signal design, silicon debug, hardware acceleration, FPGA, bus and interconnect architectures and chip-to-chip design techniques. See track sessions »
Contextual Processing
Contemporary systems design requires engineering teams to consider where, how and why data is being processed to ensure maximum efficiency. The Contextual Processing track dives deeply into considerations for audio, embedded vision, sensor control, sensor fusion, interfacing, machine vision processing and relevant considerations for engineers. See track sessions »
High-Efficiency Systems
Efficiency was once the sole domain of mobile, battery-constrained systems. This is no longer the case, as energy-efficiency concerns span electronics systems from the cloud out to the edge nodes. The High-Efficiency Systems track will examine power-efficient software and hardware design, sub-volt silicon design, battery life maximization and energy harvesting.  See track sessions »
Trust & Security
Today’s design ecosystem is rooted in connection at all levels, but these new connections come with significant trust and security considerations. The Trust & Security track details the latest information on provisioning, authentication, encryption, trusted HW/SW, mobile payment, DRM, BYOD, virtualization, and secure boot technologies, among others.
