Whatâs on at Industry Tech Days?
In terms of the electronics industry, a more appropriate question would be âwhat isnât?â.
With over 30 renowned companies taking part, including big names such as STMicroelectronics, Digi-Key, and Mouser, thereâs a huge amount of content for both electrical engineers and electronics enthusiasts to dive into. Webinars, new product videos and launches, whitepapers, keynotes, live events, and more are all availableâcovering topics like edge computing, wide-bandgap semiconductors, cybersecurity, and more.
From the Industry Tech Days landing page, youâre able to visit each companyâs virtual booth and learn more about their latest innovations, research, and developmental breakthroughs in the electronics field. Some select booths also feature live chat functionality, providing immediate access to industry experts who are waiting to answer your questions, just like they would at an in-person event!
Each day, a different keynote speaker will share their knowledge and experience on a wide range of topics specific to electrical engineering.
On Monday, the 31st of August, Richard Barr, Amazon Web Servicesâ senior principal engineer and the founder of FreeRTOS, explained how future IoT devices on the edge will need novel techniques for applications including audio, video, and machine learning in his keynote: âReal-Time Edge Processing: Get to Market Faster with Future-Proofed Designsâ.
