Demonstrations in booth #1507 will highlight the company’s signal chain solutions designed to enable a Smart Society. These include microcontroller (MCU)-based solutions optimized for applications such as smart energy, as well as industrial, wireless connectivity, and automotive. Renesas will also showcase its EE Times and EDN ACE Award nominated products: the Future Electronics Energy Harvesting Platform featuring an RL78 microcontroller and the RAA20770X Series of mini-POL converters. Panel and Technical Sessions Renesas Vice President of Marketing Peter Carbone will participate on a panel, “What the Intelligent Systems/Internet of Things Boom Means for the Embedded Market,” with experts from UBM Tech, VDC Research, IOTA, and ARM. The panel will take place on Tuesday, April 23 at 9:15 AM in room 231 AB. Renesas will also support two technical sessions highlighting its low-power design expertise: *“Analog Interfaces for Low Power Design” – presented by Mitch Ferguson, Senior Manager, Electronic Design Engineer, Consumer & Industrial Business Unit at Renesas Electronics America. *Date/Time: Tuesday, April 23, 2013 from 4:30 – 5:30 PM *Location: Salon 5 *“Energy Harvesting for Microcontrollers” – presented by Renesas partner Todd Baker, Regional Technical Director at Future Electronics. *Date/Time: Thursday, April 25, 2013 from 8:00 – 9:00 AM *Location: Salon 4 Renesas Product and Technology Demonstrations *RX Solutions: Experience the Core Difference of Renesas RX MCUs, including the new RX100 MCUs, the market’s first 32-bit MCU to feature True Low Power. This demo will showcase the ability of the RX100 to cycle through Run mode and Software stand-by. *Smart Home Solutions: Showcasing Renesas’ technologies for connected home automation, including a next-generation smart thermostat with wireless communication capabilities powered by a low-power Renesas RL78 MCU and Gainspan wireless SoC. The demo will highlight the ability to control the thermostat locally through buttons or remotely via Wi-Fi from a smart phone app. *Energy Harvesting: The award-nominated Future Electronics Energy Harvesting Platform featuring RL78 MCU will highlight Renesas’ mixed signal technology that delivers the highest power density available in Point-of-Load Solutions. The demo will showcase the platform’s modular design, which allows users to switch from a solar energy source, to any other method of harvesting, utilize different electrical storage and recharge methods, and also allows for different application boards. *Low-Power Charging: Highlighting Renesas’ low-power solutions for portable consumer applications, this demo will showcase USB battery-charging capabilities with support for multiple charging sources. Featuring the new low-power RL78/G1C MCU with an Android smartphone and a USB BC1.2-compliant battery charger, the solution will demonstrate dual USB port with battery-charging capabilities for host and device configurations, fully compatible with an android open accessory (AOA). *MICON Car Rally: This demo will showcase Renesas’ high-performance RX, low-power RL78, and R-Car technologies in a short track car rally.
