SAN FRANCISCO, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Tech, which serves design engineers and the electronics industry with essential business and technical information, today announced Patrick Mannion, VP/Brand Director, UBM Tech, Electronics and Rich Quinnell, Editor in Chief of IoT World, UBM Tech, Electronics, will present the 2014 Embedded Market Study webinar on Wednesday, April 23 at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT.
Every year UBM Tech conducts a comprehensive survey of embedded system designers in order to learn more about their trials, tribulations, issues, objectives and other key elements of the design cycle. The webinar will showcase the study's findings. In particular, the research benchmarked three to five of years of change with a look toward the future in all aspects of the embedded development process.
Key study takeaways:
- In the embedded design environment the trend is toward smaller teams will longer development cycles.
- In the embedded design process integrating new technology and managing code size are the top technology challenges.
- Software engineering staff and their managers are the decision makers on choosing an operating system and the current usage trending toward open source is up from 29 percent in 2010 to 36 percent in 2014.
- When it comes to Microprocessors, the decision to switch is driven by better features, speed/performance and future growth.
- FPGA usage is trending steadily downward and may indicate a bottoming or a pause in the trend downwards.
Webinar attendees will learn which vendors have the most brand and product awareness; developments in the embedded design process and embedded environment; key findings relating to the daily life of embedded design engineers; and what has changed, why and where the industry is headed.
"Each year we study the global embedded systems market to learn who is using embedded systems, what they are using them for and what types of embedded development is being used or considered by developers. It helps us and our community better understand the pulse of the global embedded design market," said Mannion.
The 2014 Embedded Market Study was conducted in conjunction with Wilson Research Group.
