Embedded Technology 2008 (ET2008) Event Expected to Draw Record Attendees and Exhibitors, Set to Open November 2008 in Yokohama, Japan

World's Largest Embedded Technology Exhibition and Conference Is "Asia's Vortex of Embedded Innovation™"

YOKOHAMA, JAPAN--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Japan Embedded Systems Technology Association (JASA) with the participation of industry leaders in Japan will be sponsoring the annual Embedded Technology Conference and Exhibition (ET2008) in Yokohama, Japan, November 19 through 21, 2008. Last year, over 26,000 registered attendees visited ET2007 -- the largest embedded technology event in the world. The event offers embedded suppliers a cost-effective and efficient exhibition -- opening a window to Japan and Asia markets for embedded products and services. Special turnkey booth and support services are offered for emerging ventures and startups.

Featuring a comprehensive technical program, including in-depth tutorials and tomorrow's application themes, ET2008 provides a unique opportunity for design engineers and managers to grasp the advanced techniques that address programming and real-time design challenges. Attendees will be able to test the latest embedded hardware, semiconductors/integrated circuits, design tools, middleware, and many other products from more than 440 exhibitors (900+ booths), including Microsoft, ARM, Texas Instruments, NEC, Fujitsu, Renesas Technology, NXP, Altera, Microchip Technology and MontaVista.

ET 2008's 100+ conference sessions will be attended by more than 10,000 registered attendees. The sessions will address today's hottest design topics, including multicore processors, WiMAX, Linux, real-time design and testing strategies for complex embedded systems. The sessions will enable design engineers to obtain the latest embedded know-how needed to create state-of-the-art design solutions.

ET2008 will spotlight application electronics themes covering digital consumer, automotive electronics, mobile/ubiquitous computing and factory automation/robotics. The emergence of advanced processors, better development tools, and high-speed Internet access has created a plethora of opportunities for consumer electronics products that combine audio and video technologies.

"Having the venue at the world-class Pacifico Yokohama Conference Center is a real plus for the ET2008 trade show enabling larger exhibition spaces and better conference facilities with convenient rail and subway access," said Takanori Matsuo, chairman of JASA. "The modern facility features a 200,000+ square-foot exhibition hall and an annex integrated with the Conference Center and the Grand Inter-Continental Hotel. Both attendees and exhibitors will benefit from the lower costs of Yokohama, and the area's convenient accessibility from Tokyo."

More than 28,000 attendees are expected to attend ET2008. Registration for attendees is free with pre-registration. ET2008 is offering exhibitors attractive booth packages and an array of optional services. Exhibitors can take advantage of special services, such as turnkey booths, suite rooms, workshops, open-stage presentations, show promotions, and the IP Pavilion.
