This year’s event has expanded, adding several more hands-on workshops and tracks. It is open to design engineers, engineering faculty and students, industry partners and executive managers. Participants attend hands-on training, laboratory demonstrations and presentations highlighting development tools, reference designs, customer products, student applications and projects. Featured technologies at the symposium will include Kinetis L, Freescale’s next-generation ARM Cortex M0+ core-based microcontroller and its Vybrid A5+M4 ARM multi-core technology.

This is the seventh year of the symposium. More than 250 participants from businesses and universities in the Northeast are expected to attend. Students from the computer engineering program at Rochester Institute of Technology will display research projects, and a product tradeshow takes place throughout the day.
