An interactive engineering symposium designed to enhance the design of embedded systems will be held on the Rochester Institute of Technology campus next month.

The third annual Freescale Symposium, hosted by RIT’s Department of Computer Engineering and Freescale Semiconductor, includes presentations and hands-on workshops in the areas of microcontroller architecture, system debugging and wireless sensor development.

Over 200 industry and university attendees are expected from throughout the northeastern United States and Canada. The event will be held 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 19, in RIT’s Xerox Auditorium.

Freescale has had a longstanding research and educational partnership with RIT and currently sponsors the Department of Computer Engineering’s Embedded Systems Laboratory. “Freescale’s assistance and support has been essential in helping RIT enhance embedded system education and research,” notes Professor Kenneth Hsu, director of the lab. “This symposium will further advance these efforts and disseminate new techniques and technologies to numerous stakeholders from across the region.”
