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.

“RIT is honored to host the annual Freescale Rochester Technology Symposium,” said Ken Hsu, professor of computer engineering and director of the Freescale Embedded Systems Lab at RIT. “This symposium is designed for the embedded system design engineers and managers as well as professors and students in the U.S. Northeast region. We are very grateful that Freescale generously donates the funds and equipment in support of this modern lab for our education and research.”

Prior to becoming chief technology officer, Hansen was vice president in the Chief Development Office, where he led teams focused on improving design efficiency and reducing product cost across all Freescale businesses. Previously, he held several senior technology and management positions at Freescale and Motorola, leading research and development teams.
