Almost without exception every electronic device in your house, car and office is controlled by an MCU. As the devices they control have gotten more complex, MCU architectures have gotten more sophisticated and the challenges faced by designers more daunting.  This virtual conference will focus on MCU architectures, low-power design, RTOS, MCU development tools, hardware/software co-design. It will specifically examine new MCU architectures and the designs; techniques for minimizing power and maximizing throughput; and the system and software perspectives on MCU design.  

John Donovan, Editor/Publisher of Low Power Design and Colin Holland, editor of the MCU will serve as the virtual conference's co-chairs.

In the Auditorium, the keynote presentation "What Will Make The Biggest Impact: Low Power? Connectivity? Simplicity? Yes." will be presented by Scott Roller, Vice President, General Manager, Microcontrollers, Texas Instruments.  In addition, the event tracks include:  Low-Power Design -- Keeping Hot Designs Cool; MCU I/O Strategies and Tactics; and Tools, Tips & Techniques -- Designing an MCU-Based Embedded Application

The event will also offer an Exhibit Hall with booths from event sponsor Digi-Key; platinum sponsor Microchip; and gold sponsors STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, NXP and Cypress Semiconductor.

In the Networking Lounge event attendees will be able to chat with peers one-on-one or in group chats.
