Embedded technologies standardisation group formed
Published: 20 March 2012 - Michelle Winny
A Standardisation Group for Embedded Technologies ('SGET') has been announced. Embedded computer manufacturers, Advantech, congatec, Data Modul, Kontron, MSC, SECO, are among the founding members.
The group will focus on developing and maintaining embedded computing specifications which will be applicable worldwide, in order to promote new embedded technology standardisations to meet market requirements.
With the founding of this group, a globally-operating, manufacturer-independent consortium has been created, which is in a position to react to the accelerated speed of technological progress and changing market demands quickly and flexibly.
The founding members of the group anticipate that more than one hundred ventures worldwide will join the group within a year - underlining the great need for improvement in market orientation and fast specification implementation.
Other companies and institutions working in the area of embedded computing are invited to join the new group for embedded technologies. In particular, the SGET welcomes embedded computer manufacturers on board- and system-level, research and educational institutions as well as embedded system integrators, OEM solution providers and industrial end-users.
