Tektronix to Deliver Embedded Test Education at ESC Silicon Valley

By DE Editors

Tektronix, Inc. will be delivering hands-on and educational programs during the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Silicon Valley 2010.  A highlight of the company’s involvement in ESC will be its work with Intel, Microsoft Windows Embedded, and Freescale to provide the test component of the Build Your Own Embedded System (BYOES) program, during which participants attend a series of classes and design and test an embedded system.

ESC Silicon Valley is taking place April 26-29, 2010 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, CA.

Tektronix will also be showcasing products and leading education sessions around simple protocol debug of USB 2.0, DDR2 memory system validation, and use of advanced trigger functions.

“The driving trends in embedded system design today are more functions, more performance, and lower power consumption,” says Martyn Etherington, vice president worldwide marketing, Tektronix. “Now more than ever before, test plays a critical role in helping engineers bring these more advanced, more complex designs to market in a timely way.  ESC represents a great opportunity for engineers to learn about the latest test techniques and technologies and how to apply that learning to their work.”

To support the BYOES session, Tektronix is setting up a lab with 40 MSO2000 Series oscilloscopes so participants can test their final BYOES board. Embedded design engineers will spend two days tailoring a kit to meet the specific needs of their application by attending a series of classes in which they configure the hardware (a development board featuring the dual core Intel Atom Processor D510 and a Windows Sensor and Location development kit from Freescale) and the software (Microsoft’s Windows Embedded Standard 7 platform).  At the end, they will bring their embedded system to the Tektronix lab to test portions of the board on the MSO2000 Series mixed signal oscilloscopes.

Tektronix will also be delivering two classes during the conference:

  • Fundamentals of Testing Embedded Systems
  • Bring Your Test Challenge to the Test Experts
