Embedded Systems Solutions using a 32-bit RISC MCU.
Speaker: Colin Mason, Assistant Manager - M32R Application Group,
Mitsubishi Electric Corp
9/17/97-Wed, 6:45-9:00pm. Club KARMA's event hall, 5 minutes from Osaka JR.

The usage of the M32R/D in digital cameras, information appliances,
personal communication devices and other fast growing portable and
multimedia applications will be discussed at this KPCA meeting.

Current embedded systems require increasingly powerful processing
capability coupled with a need for compactness, reduced costs and lower
power consumption.  The M32R/D which is a state of the art 32-bit RISC
processor with 2Mbytes built in DRAM addresses these requirements and will
be presented.

Mr. Mason will also discuss the hardware and software requirements, with
special commentary on the middleware requirements, such as for internet
terminals, which are now important in achieving the fast time to market
demanded by todays development schedules. Working in close proximity to the
design, manufacturing and software development teams Mr. Mason is in a
position to answer detailed questions on all aspects of the product and how
it can applied.

Mr Mason has been with Mitsubishi Electric for the past 12 years.
A Chartered Engineer and a  graduate of The University of Edinburgh with a
degree in Engineering Science. He holds a number of patents in the areas of
data storage and security.
