Lauterbach To Prove Software Code Performance at UK Automotive Electronics Event

Lauterbach has announced that it will be exhibiting at aae2011, a major UK automotive electronics event, to be held on the 27th September at the Heritage Motor Centre and Museum.

World leading debug tool specialist Lauterbach has announced that it will be exhibiting at aae2011, a major automotive electronics event, to be held on the 27th September at the Heritage Motor Centre and Museum.

Now in its fourth year, Advanced Automotive Electronics (aae) is the UK industry's leading conference focused on automotive electronics system design and development. This event attracts engineers from across Europe, providing an important opportunity for them to learn about the very latest technologies, tools and innovations that are emerging in the automotive space.

"Electronic and embedded computer systems are now very a major component of car design, said Barry Lock, UK Manager, Lauterbach. "Our tools help engineers prove that the code they write is bug free and performs at its optimum level. With the ever increasing complexity, speed and intelligence of these system, knowing that the code will be reliable is a major challenge. Powerful tools, such our 'Trace' technology, are required to collect and analyse data from the system, ensuring code quality. We will be talking about these tools and how they work, and we will be demonstrating this technology at the conference."

German based Lauterbach had a turnover in excess of $90 million worldwide during 2010 and has seen its customer base grow year on year. Recognised for both engineering excellence and exceptional technical support, Lauterbach tools have become a favourite with many hi-tech engineers. Lauterbach tools support more than 3500 microprocessors and all known ARM Cores, covering products from over 75 silicon companies. The quality and capability of these tools enable engineering teams to develop robust code whilst minimising development time lost to debugging.

“At this event we will also be discussing how our Trace tools can assist engineers in achieving Safety specifications such as ISO26262,” said Barry Lock. “We will discuss how our ‘Long Term’ Trace technology can capture minutes of code performance and analyse systems software performance from start-up to switch off, in order to predict real-world behaviour.”

Despite the contraction in motor manufacturing in the UK, the development of electronics and automotive technology remains a success story within the UK engineering sector. From engine management systems to airbag control systems and from braking and traction control to electric car design, the UK employs a large and talented workforce in this sector. Furthermore, the UK is considered the home of motor racing technology.

The conference

Comprehensive, practical and authoritative, the conference will directly address your specialist information needs. Selected by an independent judging panel of experts from within the industry, the seminar programme has been carefully timetabled into three complimentary tracks, enabling you to build your own itinerary to meet your particular professional requirements. The conference papers will be highly technical, but with practical applications in mind.

The exhibition

An integral part of the event, the aae2011 exhibition will feature a broad range of suppliers of automotive electronics solutions. Held in the splendid surroundings of The Heritage Motor Centre motor museum in Gaydon - home to the world's greatest collection of British Cars - you will be able to investigate an extensive array of technology and services from these market-leading organisations and discuss your specific project needs throughout the day.
