Embedded Summit 2016 Singapore

Next-Gen Embedded Summit 2016

2016 Embedded Summit, Singapore

Date: 26th August 2016
Time: 2pm-5pm
Venue: Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre
Address: 1 Raffles Boulevard, Suntec City, Singapore 039593

By 2020, more than 50 billion devices will be digitally connected, representing $19 trillion in business opportunity. From the "smart edge", where NI hardware performs local control and data acquisition, to monitoring and controlling entire networks of intelligent "system of systems," join us at and learn how engineers and technicians are using NI software and hardware, to build advanced IIoT applications with a single, integrated platform.

This technical seminar will explore key factors and considerations when developing IIoT applications, from the selection of sensors and actuators, to platform selection and data analytics for a variety of applications including:

  • Online condition monitoring
  • Smart Machines and Smart Factories
  • Intelligent Infrastructure
  • Smart Grid and Smart Cities


At the end of this event, you will learn:

  • How you can take advantage of LabVIEW to design custom monitoring and control systems with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), real-time operating systems, and analog I/O
  • How to implement specialized high-performance motion control systems with the NI RIO architecture
  • How existing systems can be retrofitted with NI technology to increase reliability, connectivity, performance and future proofing by taking advantage of advanced functionality and late latest industry technologies.


This seminar is designed for:

  • Engineers, and technicians who build, design, or implement embedded systems
  • Engineers using programmable logic controllers or single-board computers
  • Designers of industrial machinery, equipment, vehicles, or other electromechanical devices with moving parts and electronically controlled actuators

This 3-hour free event will host several technical sessions presented by NI, along with application examples from industry presenters.

1.00pm Registration

Keynote: Overcome the challenges of embedded design with a platform based approach
Froinand Fajardo, District Sales Manager, National Instruments

Are you ready to implement the Industrial Internet of Things?  This technology revolution is more than just a vision or a trend, it is here today -- and here to stay. But this revolution does not come without challenges, control and monitoring systems for the Industrial Internet of Things are becoming more complex, requiring a platform-based approach that overcomes obstacles and scales with evolving requirements over time.  In this session, you will learn about the incredible opportunities being created by this migration towards smarter devices, processes, and infrastructure.


Advantage of the LabVIEW RIO Architecture
Leon Tan, Field Applications Engineer, National Instruments

High-performance machines often require specialized control algorithms and advanced synchronization with sensors and vision systems. These requirements can be difficult or impossible to meet with fixed-function motion controllers and drives, and custom design often isn’t feasible. At this session, learn how you can use a fully reconfigurable motion control architecture that combines an FPGA, a real-time processor, and modular I/O to implement specialized high-performance systems more effectively than traditional approaches.

3.15pm Tea Break & Floor Demonstration Session

BCA Skylab – The World’s First Rotatable High-Rise Laboratory for the Tropics
Alice Goh, Principal Manager & Alvin Seoh, Executive Manager, Building and Construction Authority (BCA)

The BCA SkyLab facility is world’s first high-rise rotatable laboratory for the tropics. It is capable of 360˚ rotation, fully configurable and customisable. It is equipped with high grade sensors and data acquisition system for testing of energy efficient building components and systems.  These sensors measure performance metrics such as energy performance, indoor environmental quality, outdoor environmental parameters and building automation system indicators. The speakers will be sharing more of this Skylab’s capabilities and the lined up testing.


Introducing New Technologies to Enable The IIoT
Teck Chin Wong, District Sales Engineer, National Instruments

In this session, learn about the new NI technology for embedded control and monitoring applications. Products include the latest CompactRIO and Single-Board RIO controllers, the new Controller for FlexRIO, and the latest C Series I/O modules. These devices incorporate the most up-to-date technology and provide new I/O points to offer you innovative and advanced functionality that can increase your productivity and system performance. Attend this session to see some of this new technology in action and learn how it can enable your next application.


Question & Answer Session


Simplify your system using CompactRIO Controllers with dual-band, 802.11 wireless communication capabilities to connect directly to your WiFi infrastructure and more easily deploy systems in areas where running cabling is difficult, while meeting the shock, vibration, and temperature requirements of extreme environments.

Powering the Smart Grid

Embedded reconfigurable instrumentation and control systems powered by NI LabVIEW, are now merging with cloud-based networking, analytics, and other cutting-edge information technologies. The proliferation of smart network embedded systems, widely distributed throughout the grid will revolutionize the way electricity is produced, consumed, and distributed. Just like the information technology (IT) revolution that is driving it, the energy technology (ET) revolution will bring about dramatic innovations that make energy cheaper, cleaner, and more abundant.
