About Renesas Electronics DevCon

Hosted by the world's largest microcontroller (MCU) supplier (as a result of the merger between Renesas Technology and NEC Electronics in April 2010), the Renesas Electronics DevCon offers an education and networking forum for designers working with embedded systems. The event provides direct access to the company's recent embedded technology advancements, featuring MCUs, microprocessors, SoCs and display technologies, among others.

Led by embedded systems experts from Renesas Electronics and its technology partners, the 120 sessions will span the embedded spectrum, with topics including automotive, motor control, human machine interface (HMI), computer architectures, operating systems, connectivity, security and emerging display technologies. These technical deep-dives will provide designers with practical information for implementation in their real-world engineering projects.

In addition, attendees can sync up with Renesas Electronics and its participating partners during "Meet the Experts" sessions for personalized discussions on a variety of topics. Several of the company's embedded solutions also will be on display in the DevCon exhibit hall, featuring more than 75 demonstrations, and exclusive tool and development kit offers.

To provide attendees with a complete eco-system of resources for their design needs, more than 40 Renesas Alliance Partners are planned to participate. Among them are Ariane, AxelSys, BNS, Brazen Tek, Crank Software, FDI, Lauterbach, Micriµm, Micron, MPC Data, Paragon Innovations, Segger and TotalPhase.
