Embedded World 2021 - Overview

Embedded World 2021 - Overview

Tuesday, 23 February 2021
The 2021 embedded world Exhibition & Conference looks a little different this year, taking place as a completely digital event for the first time.

The extended 5 day event provides participants with a platform in which to discover the very latest innovations from the embedded sector, all from the comfort of their own home.

This year DAVE Embedded Systems will be taking part as both an exhibitor and as a host of a panel discussion dedicated to their Machine Learning Solutions. Machine Learning is one of DAVE Embedded's key research interests, and the aim of their panel is to provide support for customers adopting these features within their products as well as information about the embedded design based on these capabilities.

During the event DAVE Embedded will also be formally introducing 4 brand new hardware products, which have been designed specifically with long lifecycles and target market requirements in mind, for example the availability of products with a temperature range of at least -40°/+85° (-125° for automotive or avionic/defense applications).

Four Key Products

The ORCA SOM product is based on the NXP i.MX 8 Plus processor.
It is a system with a new type of SODIMM pinout based on DDR4 260-pin interface. Maintaining the same dimensions of the previous SODIMMs, it allows to have about 60 more signals and gives the possibility to use everything that the processor makes available without complications of the production process.

From the ORCA SOM design comes ORCA Single Board Computer, also based on the NXP i.MX 8 Plus processor. The product has a compact footprint, for which DIN 6M boxes already exist. The ORCA SBC solution allows you to have 2 Ethernet switches, USBC power supply with power delivery, HDMI and a wide range of data storage thanks to the eMMC storage integrated inside. It is possible to connect up to two embedded cameras (also the ones available for Raspberry PI) and native displays with LVDS interface with resolution up to Full HD. It is equipped with H.264 and H.265 video coding system.

ETRA SOM is based on the recent ST STM32MP1 application processor.
The STM32MP1 series is based on a heterogeneous single or dual Arm Cortex-A7 and Cortex-M4 cores architecture, strengthening its ability to support multiple and flexible applications.

With the same characteristics of SBC Lynx Embedded Linux Kit (XUELK), ETRA SBC allows you to design very compact IoT systems of 4-DIN rail modules with extensive expansion options allowing you to create your own IoT hub: collect data and send them to the cloud and, vice versa, modify edge’s settings from the cloud on the edge. It is a very compact, SWaP optimised product, with the possibility of 1/2 Ethernet interfaces, SD and USB power supply. It is designed to be integrated on a classic industrial DIN rail 4M product.
