Micro Innovation Day II – Édition 2021


Conferences, Showroom, B2Bmeetings, Networking

7th October 2021 – Jardin du Pharo, Amphithéâtre Gatsaud Aix-Marseille Université

Conférence en langue française et supports en anglais


SCS continues its cooperation with scientific experts in Microelectronics with the organisation of a 2nd Innovation Micro Day gathering industry and academia on Low power Architecture & Microcontroller with AI algorithm integrated.

For this second edition,  the scientific day will be held in Marseille, Palais du Pharo, and will welcome guest speakers from academia and industry. It will target multiple innovations contributing to European industry competitiveness.

Contributions related to the latest advances on methodologies and technologies for

  • the design, evaluation, and optimization of low power harware architecture (reliable and safe)
  • Microcontroller with embedded AI

will be presented.
