Welcome to EDI CON USA 2016!

EDI CON USA uniquely brings together RF, microwave, EMC/EMI, and high-speed digital design engineers and system integrators for networking, training, and learning opportunities. Attendees come to EDI CON USA to find solutions, products, and design ideas that they can put into immediate practice for today's communication, defense, consumer electronics, aerospace, and medical industries.

Drawing attendees from both the analog and digital spheres, EDI CON enables designers to see techniques and technologies used in other applications that could be applied or adapted to solve their latest design challenges. The exhibition hall features product displays, demonstrations, design contests, interactive sessions, speed trainings, networking opportunities, and educational talks that will address all aspects of design, simulation, test, and verification.

Technical Program

The EDI CON technical program focuses on a range of high frequency and high speed electronic design issues ranging from modeling and design to component characterization, system integration, and verification. It includes:

  • Technical Sessions based on Peer-Reviewed Papers
  • Workshops
  • Panel Sessions
  • Keynote Talks

The EDI CON technical sessions offer insights on today’s design challenges using available electronic design tools and techniques. Divided into technical tracks, each session is based on peer-reviewed abstracts and papers that have been selected by the EDI CON Technical Advisory Committee. The technical program also includes workshops and panel sessions that offer interactive opportunities to explore the technologies and methodologies that are critical to success in today’s electronic designs.

Invited keynote speakers include industry executives, industry experts, and leading researchers. Technical sessions topics include RF and microwave design, high-speed digital design, measurement and modeling, EMC/EMI, system-level measurements and modeling, system engineering, signal integrity, materials, and commercial resources.

Workshops provide a forum for industry practitioners to share information on specific challenging and emerging topics related to high-frequency/high-speed electronic design. Workshop sponsors are responsible for developing the content according to the guidelines set by the EDI CON organizers. Workshops are an interactive experience, allowing extra time for audience questions and participation, which may include demonstrations and opportunities to work with design software and/or measurement equipment.

Expert Panels

These sessions feature a discussion on specific topics by a panel of experts led by a moderator with interaction from audience members. Each session will include panelists recognized for their expertise in their respective fields. Each panelist will give a brief overview of their position on the challenges and potential solutions impacting a specific technology or application. Panel themes mirror the tracks of the technical sessions with an emphasis on Design, measurement/simulation/modeling and system engineering.
