Celebrate Oktoberfest with Renesas and Intersil and enter to win an exclusive beverage coaster
The beverage coaster is the first reference design created by Renesas and Intersil together and showcases a diverse portfolio of products for broad market applications. It consists of a self-contained PCB board inside a plastic casing to protect it from accidental spills, and features a Renesas Synergy™ Platform S3-series MCU, plus multiple power/analog components from the Intersil product line.
As a beverage approaches the coaster’s center, the LEDs blink with increasing frequency until the drink is set down on top. A TE Connectivity thermistor indicates if it is too warm (flashes red) or just right (flashes blue) while “The Chicken Dance” plays in the background.
