Insights from Embedded Computing Design’s 2020 Reader Survey

2020 represented an inflection point for many industries. The high-tech industry was no different.

Historically, the annual Embedded Computing Design reader study tracks trends in electronics engineering ranging from the popularity of embedded processor architectures to the proliferation of IoT operating systems to the use of high-speed wired and wireless communications. However, this year’s iteration includes new insights with profound implications on both the technology sector and the vertical applications it supports:

  • How engineers, engineering managers, and high-tech executives are responding to the realities of remote, distributed development efforts
  • How the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted high-tech businesses and the electronics supply chain
  • The importance of security and lifecycle management in this new engineering landscape

Join Embedded Computing Design and BlackBerry QNX for analysis of these indicators, as well as an in-depth look at how paradigm-shifting technologies such as artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, 5G networks, and Industry 5.0, and are playing out in the trenches of embedded and IoT engineering. Learn what tools developers are using, what design strategies engineering managers are adopting, how tech execs are responding to market turbulence, and ways you can position your organization to capitalize in 2021.
