EDI CON USA 2017 Adds Short Courses

Reading time ( words)

The Electronic Design Innovation Conference and Exhibition (EDI CON) USA, the first industry event to bring together RF/microwave and high-speed digital design engineers and system integrators, has added a full day of training to its conference program at the Hynes Convention Center, September 11-13 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Organizers of EDI CON have invited industry experts to teach 3-hour short courses on relevant topics necessary for success in today’s high-speed and high-frequency designs. The day also includes sponsored 3-hour training sessions from industry-leading companies. In addition to access to instructors who are preeminent in their respective fields, attendees will be treated to a lunch, networking breaks, and an afternoon reception courtesy of the day’s sponsors: Mentor Graphics Corporation, a Siemens business; Teledyne LeCroy; Rohde & Schwarz; and Analog Devices.  

Scheduled short courses include:

  • Practical Antenna Design for Wireless Products, presented by Henry Lau, Lexiwave Technology, Inc.
  • Radar, Phased-Arrays, Metamaterials and MIMO – Basics, Advances And Breakthroughs, presented by Dr. Eli Brookner, Retired, Raytheon
  • Power Integrity 101, presented by Steve Sandler, Founder, Picotest
  • Transferring Board Design into PCB Design: Get it Right the First Time, presented by Shalom Shlomi Zigdon, iTech iCollege Israel
  • Five Steps to Engineer Transparent Vias in High-Speed Circuit Boards, presented by Eric Bogatin, Editor Signal Integrity Journal & Dean of Signal Integrity Academy; Sponsored by Mentor Graphics, a Siemens Company
  • Practical Board-Level Power Integrity Measurement and Design Principles, presented by Eric Bogatin, Editor Signal Integrity Journal & Dean of Signal Integrity Academy; Sponsored by Teledyne LeCroy
  • RF & Bench Essentials for IoT Device Debugging, presented by Greg Bonaguide; Sponsored by Rohde & Schwarz

Attendees will require a conference pass to attend these sessions. 

EDI CON USA 2017 is building on its inaugural 2016 conference with multiple parallel tracks covering RF/microwave, high-speed digital and EMC/EMI topics. The conference features these extended short courses on Monday, September 11 followed by technical sessions, invited talks, workshops, panels and exhibition on Tuesday and Wednesday. Technical sessions focus on actionable, educational information for working engineers rather than product pitches and commercial presentations.

This year, EDI CON USA is the biggest RF/microwave industry conference and exhibition in the continental USA, and the largest high-speed technical conference on the US East Coast. Networking opportunities will abound on the exhibit floor, and attendees can enjoy a welcome reception and happy hour. More information, including registration and how to exhibit, is available at www.ediconusa.com. EDI CON USA 2017 is supported by its primary media sponsors, Microwave Journal and Signal Integrity Journal. For future planning, EDI CON USA 2018 will be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center (Santa Clara, CA) October 17-19, 2018.

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 address all aspects of design, simulation, test, and verification.

Still Using 1980s Formats for Design Data Handoff?

03/09/2018 | Hemant Shah and Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
The IPC-2581 format was created in the early 2000s with the merger of two competing formats: ODB++ and GENCAM. The new format, the brainchild of the late Dieter Bergman, languished with no adoption until 2011, when a small group of companies created the IPC-2581 Consortium with the goal of getting this open, neutral and intelligent format adopted. The consortium has been growing steadily in recent years. Its membership now includes more than 100 associate members in addition to its more than 90 corporate members.

Real Time with... DesignCon: Mentor Partners with Sintecs on EU Project

02/16/2018 | Real Time with DesignCon
During DesignCon 2018, Guest Editor Kelly Dack interviewed Sintecs' CEO Evert Pap and system architect Hans Klos in the Mentor booth. Sintecs used Mentor's software tools to design the dReDBox, a virtual prototype project funded by the European Union.

Who Really Owns the PCB Layout? Part 2

02/07/2018 | Paul Taubman, Nine Dot Connects
In Part 1 of this series, Paul Taubman made the bold statement that the PCB layout is just as much a mechanical effort as it is an electrical one. In Part 2, he threads the needle, explaining why he believes that a PCB truly a mechatronic design, and why mechanical engineers may be more prepared to take on the PCB layout.
