On April 13-14 2021, join us at Qt Embedded Days with hosts KDAB for a deep dive into reliability and achieving it in embedded devices.

Tuxera is excited to be presenting at Qt Embedded Days. This brand new online conference hosted by our partner KDAB Group offers in-depth technical topics from embedded developers for embedded developers – especially but not exclusively for those working with Qt on Embedded Devices. The KDAB Group is a leading expert provider of Qt, C++ and OpenGL consulting, development and training services.

While the full program is available on the event website, we’re letting you know more about Tuxera’s talk, right here. Read below for more details.

Title: What does reliability mean to you?

Speaker: Sami Kassimäki, Product Manager at Tuxera

Abstract: When a device fails in the field, the consequences can be significant. In our talks with embedded OEMs, one thing is for certain: addressing a problem in the field is costly. Anticipating and preventing field failures enables market leaders to invest in innovation – rather than costly resource-draining diagnosis, repair, and redesign. Typically, these costs detract from new product development while impacting time-to-market.

However, embedded devices operate in conditions where sudden power interruptions and other hazards can occur at any time. As the data storage needs of these devices have increased dramatically over the years, unreliable data storage can also be a significant contributor to field failures.

With the complexity of modern embedded designs, root cause analysis can be difficult and painstaking, pulling resources for field diagnostics and post-mortem analysis. What’s more, reliability is one of the most important factors distinguishing leading embedded products from their also-ran competitors. Failsafe and long-lasting data storage is therefore not a simple matter, requiring careful planning.

In this presentation, we’ll discuss different levels of reliability. We’ll also examine methods for achieving long-term reliability – ensuring that a well-tested data storage system contributes to preventing field failures while increasing the lifetime of an embedded device.
