- IK4-IKERLAN is an international benchmark in the development of high-dependability electronic systems for critical applications
- It will be displaying various developments linked to the transport, industrial capital goods, wind energy and elevation sectors
IK4-IKERLAN will be attending Europe’s most important event dealing with embedded systems: Embedded World 2015, to be held in Nuremberg (Germany) from 24 to 26 February. There, the Basque R&D centre will be showcasing its capabilities in this field, in which it features as an international benchmark, before an audience made up of the most important players from across the continent.
IK4-IKERLAN is making a significant effort to drive forward R&D relating to embedded systems; they are electronic devices used to control, in a robust and reliable way, one or more of the functions of the object they have been built into, be it a vehicle, an industrial machine or a wind turbine. These systems are contributing towards driving forward the competitiveness of industry, since they enable the features, safety and efficiency of the objects that contain them to be increased, and this gives these objects outstanding added value on the market.
At Embedded World 2015 the R&D centre will be displaying its capabilities to companies interested in high-dependability electronic systems for critical applications, those whose breakdown would have serious consequences from the point of view of people safety, or due to their economic repercussions.
IK4-IKERLAN is in fact an international benchmark in the development of devices of this type, thanks to the experience it has built up in collaboration with various companies. At its stand (number 242 in Hall 4) it will be displaying various developments linked to the transport, industrial capital goods, wind energy and elevation sectors.
Embedded World 2015
The Embedded World Exhibition & Conference 2015, taking place in Nuremberg (Germany) from 24 to 26 February, is the most important event of the year for the European embedded systems sector. Two figures suffice to highlight its importance: last year this event had 856 exhibitors and drew over 26,000 visitors.
"Embedded World 2015 will be an unbeatable showcase enabling us to display our strength in the field of high-dependability electronic systems for critical applications to the most important players in the sector. We are endorsed by our experience: we have helped many companies be more competitive thanks to developments of this type,” said the IK4-IKERLAN researcher Jon Pérez.
IK4-IKERLAN is a leading centre in technology transfer and in the contribution of competitive value to companies, thanks to its capacity to offer comprehensive solutions by combining various technological domains. This is possible due to its high degree of expertise in six major areas: embedded systems, power electronics, microtechnologies, energy efficiency and storage, mechatronics and advanced manufacturing.
