EELive! Part 2: Safety-Critical Systems

On the heels of Michael Barr’s keynote at EELive this year – “KILLER APPS: Embedded Software’s Greatest Hit Jobs,” this week’s Fish Fry takes a closer look at embedded software for safety-critical systems. At the helm is Jim McElroy – VP at LDRA. Jim and I discuss the challenges of designing safety-critical embedded systems, and Jim explains where LDRA fits into the embedded software ecosystem. He also gives us the low down on why Boston Baked Beans get a bad wrap. (Spoiler: According to Jim, they totally deserve it.) I also give everyone a sneak peek at EE Journal’s brand new “On the Scene” video blog, and I lay out my revolutionary plans to restore the Embedded Systems Conference to its former glory. (Second Spoiler: They absolutely will not use my idea.)
