Norwood, MA (09/18/2012) - Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) will present two tracks demonstrating the fundamentals of A/D converters and microcontroller (MCU) system interoperability, and the basics of designing with analog and digital sensors during Renesas Electronics America’s DevCon 2012 conference, Oct. 22-25 at the Hyatt Regency in Anaheim/Orange County, Calif.

As a Renesas Alliance Partner, Analog Devices will be a featured presenter during the four-day developer’s conference, which Renesas holds bi-annually as an education and networking forum for designers working with embedded systems. The theme of this year’s event is, “Enabling the Smart Society.” Analog Devices will help attendees discover simplified ways to ensure analog and digital system interoperability, using ADI sensors and data converters with Renesas MCUs.


Analog Devices DevCon 2012 Presentations

  • A/D Converter Fundamentals: ADI engineers will share insights on popular A/D converter types and technologies to help designers more quickly and easily identify the appropriate converter for their application. The presentation also will include a segment demonstrating how to match precision A/D converters with Renesas MCUs.
  • Sensor Fundamentals: Attendees will learn the basics of creating Renesas MCU software projects that interface to analog and digital sensors. The lab will cover a variety of sensor types, including temperature sensors, MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes, and MEMS microphones Renesas MCU-compatible sensor evaluation boards will help attendees became familiar with the process of exchanging data with digital sensors and the steps required to read data from analog sensors using the A/D data converters interoperating with Renesas MCUs. Attendees also will learn how to establish communication interfaces using SPI and I²C with different ADI digital sensors.
