Remind us briefly why the EEMBC was started, by whom, what its mission is, and what it provides to which industries.
I started EEMBC in 1997 (with some guidance by guys such as Derek Meyer and Geoff Lees) because we realized that there was a clear need in the embedded industry for standardized embedded computer benchmarks that all processor vendors could utilize. At the time, there were de facto standard benchmarks such as the infamous Dhrystone MIPS, but more often than not, processor vendors used their own proprietary benchmarks, which, of course, meant that there was no way to make embedded computer comparisons.

Engineers working in the embedded development of software for automotive applications will have the opportunity to learn about the latest tools and techniques at Lauterbach’s September Automotive Forum.
Software debug tool company Lauterbach has announced that embedded computers will be holding an Automotive Forum at its head office in Munich. This free, one-day event is open to all English speaking developers and interested parties. The day will include a number of interesting topics presented by a Lauterbach specialist or a guest speaker.

The WI-FI CERTIFIED Miracast specification enables car manufacturers to wirelessly mirror smartphone screens to in-dash LCDs, creating an immediately personalized interface in the dashboard. Additionally, this in-vehicle standards-based technology allows consumers to safely control smartphones through the dashboard so they can answer calls and check text messages. Although NFC is often associated with cashless payments, its ability to deliver security features to IVI systems is instrumental in providing an optimal end-user experience. lose proximity or touch. NFC leverages the principle of magnetic induction to establish a communication link between two devices employing loop antennas. The effective range of link is no more than a few centimeters, so in-vehicle the user experience for setting up the connection is built around close proximity or touch. nd check text messages.
