Leading microfluidics company Dolomite, will be presenting their latest technology at the UK Embedded Masterclass on May 13th in Bristol. In addition to a presentation that will explain how microfluidics is enabling future medical systems, drug discovery systems, DNA analysis equipment and environmental testing, Dolomite will also be exhibiting their latest droplet generation chipset and microfluidics edge connectors.
“In many ways microfluidics is where chemistry meets embedded engineering,” said Dr Gillian Davis, Commercial Director of Dolomite. “Microfluidics is a technology that enables small scale fluid control and analysis, allowing manufacturers to develop smaller, more cost-effective, and more powerful systems. At Dolomite we provide a range of off-the-shelf solutions, custom designs, system integration and microfluidics training for development teams.”
Now in its 6th year and with over 800 engineers having registered for these events, the Embedded Masterclass has become an important event in the UK’s Embedded Systems calendar. With its focus on leading edge embedded technology and tools, the Embedded Masterclass has gained a reputation for being ‘useful and informative’, a chance to meet with vendors and engineers in a non-sales environment and a chance to listen to technical presentations from key industry leaders. This year is unique in two respects. One is that the event will host an Embedded Linux Training Workshop and the second is that the event will take place in both London and Bristol (although Dolomite will only be attending the Bristol event).
“The term ‘embedded’ comes from the fact that so many modern devices have computers ‘embedded’ within them,” said Gillian Davis. “A lot of hi-tech medical equipment often has a network of microchips communicating together at amazingly high speeds. The size and nature of our microfluidics devices make them ideal for integration into small automated systems such as point of care equipment and automated laboratory equipment.”
The event also includes a tabletop exhibition. Some of the world’s leading embedded systems tools, hardware and software vendors have already signed up to exhibit. These include MontaVista – a world leader in embedded Linux solutions, Enea – a world leader in operating systems and development tools for mobile phones and wireless infrastructure equipment, SDC Systems – a leading UK supplier of development tools and software testing solutions, Barric – a leading UK manufacturer of complex electronics hardware and Telelogic – a world leader in UML system modelling tools.
“The tabletop format for the exhibition has been good for us,” said Richard Blackburn, event organiser. “This means that there is more focus on the technology and less on the sales/marketing. It makes for a better environment for engineers to learn about the technology, it simply makes it a lot more friendly and less competitive. As the event has grown, it’s been easier to attract the more important world-class players. With people like MontaVista and Enea on board, we feel sure engineers will want to come along and learn about their new offerings.”
The Embedded Masterclass (excluding the Embedded Linux workshop) is free to engineers and technology managers. Attendance is limited, so early registration is recommended. The Embedded Linux workshop is at a special price of £95 and again places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
