Our researcher Dimitrios Pantazis attended the 2016 Device Developers’ Conference (DDC), taken place on 27th & 28th of April in Cambourne, Cambridge.
The UK DDC is a free 2-day conference, organised by Energi Technical Ltd. Its purpose is to present the most recent solutions in the areas of Embedded & Real-time Systems, such as advancements in software debugging, development tools and safety-related topics. The presentations of experts in the industry are accompanied by workshops and a vendor exhibition. This year’s conference was co-located with H/WExpo 2016, a conference on hardware development and validation, introducing innovative tools and techniques to facilitate the hardware production process.
Dimitris also signed up for the half-day “JTAG practical workshop” organised by XJTAG. The workshop included a brief introduction to the JTAG technology, the principles of operation and the benefits it has to offer. A hands-on full board testing followed up, with each of the participants given the opportunity to perform a series of real-time tests on a custom board, such as GPIO, SPI and SRAM functionality tests.
