From 14 to 16 March, the Embedded World 2023 will take place in Nuremberg and will gather top players from the embedded community. Always “behind the scenes”, embedded systems influence everyday lives in industrial, private, and public sectors. From an industrial robots to a smartphone and the most common washing machine: integrated microprocessors can manage hundreds of objects. 

Embedded World 2023 will focus on fundamental topics like systems’ sustainability and responsibility. It is necessary that companies are aligned on these core areas because embedded technologies have an important role in critical applications like medical and financial ones. Due to the spread of embedded systems, talking about green best practices has become more relevant while designing and building an embedded system. 

Sustainability in embedded systems

When talking about sustainability, ecology is the most related topic that accompanies it. Green engineering is strictly related to resources’ energy efficiency, an aspect that embedded technologies have always focused on. With the Internet of Things, it has become more relevant because many systems and devices work wireless and need a low-energy consumption to work long hours. 

Hardware components have a crucial role in the sustainability of embedded systems, confirmed Professor Axel Sikora, Chairman of the Embedded World Conference. This means a longer and more stable life cycle of components, a ‘clean’ production, the possibility to repair devices, and the final dismantling. To summarize: a circular economy that is able to reduce the impact on the environment, especially with dangerous and non-biodegradable components. Better efficiency includes updated software with better performance. 

Responsibility and security with embedded systems

Embedded systems are used in several sectors like medical, financial, and industrial productions. Accountability and security have to be guaranteed in sectors where the shared information is often sensitive data like health info, bank codes, or industrial data. It is therefore fundamental to focus on systems’ security, raising awareness among all the stakeholders on the importance and responsibility of every subject involved in producing embedded systems. 

MAS Elettronica at Embedded World 2023 

MAS Elettronica will be present in three stands at Embedded World 2023 in Nuremberg: 

  • With the French company Steliau, we will present SBC Mina, a Single Board Computer that thanks to the TPM security module can guarantee complete integrity of embedded systems, especially in critical contexts like medical and industrial;
  • With Lattice Semiconductors and Arrow, we will bring MAS LIFCL Evaluation Board
  • We will bring also NVidia SBC Lightfront AI, a SBC board that thanks to high performance can carry heavy workloads like AI applications.
