DSP Valley organized a half day workshop on tools for hard- and software design for embedded systems. At the end of the workshop, Marleen Boonen from Methods2Business was one of the speakers in the panel discussion.

Panel moderator: Geert Adriaens (DSP Valley); 
Panel members:  Ramses Valvekens (Easics), Marco Jacobs (Vector Fabrics), Hendrik Eeckhaut (Sigasi), Marleen Boonen (Methods2Business)

The panel was challenged to zoom in on the following topics:
While the adoption of embedded system design tools proceeds more slowly than expected, new developments keep moving at an incredibly fast pace: multicore designs, parallel computing, growing complexity in shrinking form factors and power usage, etc.Is it a losing battle for the tool vendors then? How can they increase their adoption rate and at the same time keep up with these developments? Oh, and can the software tools reach the same level of maturity as the hardware tools quickly enough?
