Do you need to add intelligence to your product? System-In-Package (SiP) provides you a full Embedded Linux System in a single Package, delivering an entire full-featured computer to your system for the same effort as a microcontroller. This session walks you through SiP technology and how it can enable anybody to build Smaller, Lower Cost Embedded Systems. This hour with Erik saves months of engineering time.

Participants will learn:

  • What System-In-Package (SiP) is
  • How to shorten design time of Embedded Systems by using SiP technology
  • Lowering the cost of manufacturing compared with discrete components or SOM by using SiP technology—combining processor, power, memory and over 100 components in an easy to use package
  • How to shorten time to market for IoT systems with abstracted, reusable common hardware and Linux software system blocks
  • How to develop with SiP quickly by using low cost development boards such BeagleBone starting at $25
