“As an industry we embed our technology so well that […] it is completely hidden from view and it’s functionality completely integrated, to the extent that this technology is often completely un-appreciated.”
Many of our supporters will know that NMI members helped found the UKESF, and we retain close links with TechWorks. You might have heard about TechNES. We asked their network director, Steve Drew, to tell us a bit about it…..
“TechNES (The Technology Network for Embedded Systems) was built from the foundations of NMI, and has been established to provide a platform for coherence in this embedded systems domain, by connecting leading companies across industrial sectors, sustaining, and supporting the world-class engineering capability that exists in the UK. This group will cover all aspects of embedded systems design from hardware and software engineering through to systems engineering. From silicon design through to the end system.
“All areas of the modern economy are under-pinned by smart and connected Embedded Electronic Systems. As an industry we embed our technology so well that, whilst it is the single most critical building block, it is completely hidden from view and it’s functionality completely integrated, to the extent that this technology is often completely un-appreciated. We aim to create a rich and vibrant community of embedded engineers, focused in on the key challenges faced by today’s design engineering community.”
