Synopsys, Inc. will host a free one-day conference focused on the latest Processor IP technologies and trends and software development and programming tools optimized for use in embedded devices. In this multi-track event, ARC processor users, ecosystem partners, industry luminaries and Synopsys experts will discuss how to address a wide range of design challenges with the latest hardware and software solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) security, automotive safety, embedded vision and other applications. Take the opportunity to network with fellow attendees, ARC partners and Synopsys staff as well as see a variety of live partner and Synopsys demonstrations at the evening reception.

The ARC Processor Summit will open with a morning keynote presentation by Linley Gwennap of the Linley Group, who will discuss the evolving standards for communication protocols, software and services for IoT devices. In addition, Jeff Bier, Founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance and President of BDTI will present in the Embedded Vision Track with an insider’s view of embedded vision technology and how it will evolve in the next few years.
