On the Road Again

Some of you (and some of us) may be taking road trip vacations with the family this summer, but Critical Link is hitting the road, starting in mid-August. Our travels will be taking us across the country, and even across the pond.

We have a fantastic lineup on our calendar:

RTECC(short for Real-Time & Embedded Computing Conference):We’ll be exhibiting at a couple of RTECC conferences:

  • Orange County, California (August 19)
  • San Diego, California (August 21)

And if you don’t think there’s any such thing as a free lunch, think again! RTECC events have no registration fee, and lunch is free. The Orange County conference will be held at the Richard Nixon Library & Museum in Yorba Linda, which folks of a certain age, and history buffs, might get a kick out of. The San Diego event will be at the more prosaic Crowne Plaza Hotel in Mission Valley.

There are several other RTECCs we may be participating in through the rest of the year. We’ll keep you posted.

ARM TechCon, which is going to be held in Santa Clara (at the Convention Center), October 1-3, is a show that we’ll be attending, but not exhibiting at. This is a pretty big event, and is aimed at helping hardware engineers and software developers work together to optimize their future ARM-based embedded products.

No rest for the weary I guess, so back on the East Coast the next week:

TI Tech Days (now TI Tech Summits) are something that we have very much enjoyed participating in. They offer a great opportunity to see TI’s latest embedded processors, and to check out what vendors like Critical Link are doing with them. The exhibits (and that all important lunch) are free.

So far, we know we’ll be exhibiting at these locations: (No info yet on specific venues.)

  • Anaheim, California (October 14)
  • Santa Barbara, California (October 15)

We may be adding others as well.

Come November, we’ll be brushing up on our German.

Vision Expo: We’ll be exhibiting at this event, “the world’s leading machine vision trade fair”, which will be held in Stuttgart, November 4-6, at the Messe Stuttgart. (In case you’re wondering, “messe” is German for “fair.”) Last time he was in Germany, Tom managed to sneak in a tour of the BMW Factory.

Arrow Centralized Training (also known as ACT) will be held in Denver, Colorado, from November 17 – 21, and Critical Link will be exhibiting and training Field Application Engineers on our SOMs and Imaging products. We participated in each of the last 2 ACTs, and can’t wait to see what Arrow has up its sleeve to top the tremendous value received from each of those events.

That’s what’s on the Critical Link calendar, for the rest of the year.

If you’re planning on attending any of these events, we’d love to have you stop by and say hello. If you’d like to schedule a time to meet (especially at ARM TechCon, where we’ll be attending but not exhibiting), please drop us a line and we’ll set something up.
