The Embedded Systems Conference and Expo (ESC) is being combined with six ‘electronics industry summits’ next year. Android Summit, Black Hat, Sensors in Design, Designing with LEDs, DesignMED and MultiCore DevCon will run alongside ESC and the event is called Design. Design West will take place at the McEnergy Convention Center, San Jose, CA from March 26-29, 2012. Mouser Electronics is the signature sponsor. Registration is open here. Presumably, Design East will follow in Boston.
