Drive World+Embedded Systems Conference (ESC)

Meet embedded systems innovators at Silicon Valley’s preeminent automotive electronics and intelligence event, now part of DesignCon. ESC is one of North America’s leading embedded systems events that has been influencing the design of electronics for 30 years. Drive World attracts professionals from the automotive and electronics industries. All DesignCon All Access passholders may attend any of the Drive World+ESC sessions.

The Car Is the Next Must-Have Consumer Electronic

Cars are getting smarter. But the shift to Level 5 autonomy will take time, testing, and, most of all, the technical chops to perfect the connected car at the component level. That means sensors, 5G, systems on chip, and other foundational elements that are the heart of tomorrow’s autonomous vehicle.

In its second year, Drive World with the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) returns to Silicon Valley alongside North America's largest chip, board, and systems event, DesignCon. The three-day showcase brings together the brightest minds across the automotive electronics and semiconductor industries who are looking to shape the technology of tomorrow.
