Next generation microcontrollers, integrated wireless and e-field sensing technologies will be the focus of the 2009 Freescale Rochester Technology Symposium, Nov. 5, at Rochester Institute of Technology. The all-day symposium will be held in the Louise M. Slaughter Building on the RIT campus. It will kick off with an opening keynote from Lisa Su, senior vice president and general manager of the Freescale Networking Systems Group.

The annual symposium is open to design engineers, engineering professors and students, third-party tools partners, and executive managers for a one-day, multi-track training seminar on Freescale technologies and system design. Participants can participate in labs and presentations, as well as a trade show highlighting development tools, reference designs, customer products, and student applications and projects.

Su will open the program in the morning discussing the newest Freescale technologies including the company’s next generation multi-core family of microcontrollers, integrated wireless, e-field sensing technologies and high-power radio frequency technology. She joined Freescale in June 2007 as chief technology officer to lead Freescale’s technology roadmap and global research and development operations. A year later she was named general manager of networking and multimedia. Prior to joining Freescale, Su was vice president of the Semiconductor Research and Development Center at IBM and responsible for the strategic direction of the company’s silicon technologies, joint development alliances and semiconductor R&D operations.
