A new kind of technical conference and trade show, developed for and by the
high-frequency/high-speed electronics industry and Microwave Journal China.


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. This year’s panel sessions include:

  • GaN Panel
  • sponsored by Richardson RFPD
  • MIMO OTA Test Panel
  • Sponsored by Spirent Communications
  • EDA Design Flow Panel
  • Featuring Agilent Technologies, AWR, ANSYS, CST
  • Aligning RF semiconductor technology to end-use applications
  • Featuring OMMIC, Peregrine Semiconductor, TriQuint Semiconductor, Freescale
  • Trends in future telecommunications systems and their engineering challenges
  • Moderated by Guangyi Liu, Chief Research Scientist - China Mobile Research Institute


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.
