EDI CON 2013
Opening Plenary Session
Tuesday March 12, 2013
Welcome Remarks (13:00-15:00)
The Present and Future of RF/Microwave and High-Speed Digital Devices and Systems
Professor Song Junde, Beijing University Posts and Telecommunications
Recent years have witnessed the surge and remarkable growth of microwave technology, which have emerged as an important technique for communication systems for such applications as wireless paging, mobile technology and broadcast video. This presentation will first focus on the architectural aspects of such communication systems. Next, we will derive a set of features and support expected from the tremendous advances in cost-effi cient manufacturing capabilities of microwave and RF products. Finally, we will compare and contrast these requirements with the features and support available in current generation systems and outline the opportunities and challenges for microwave technologies.
Nurturing Design Innovation for China’s Future
Guy Séné, President Electronic Measurement Group, Agilent Technologies
Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON) hopes to accomplish with its debut and it’s what we at Agilent Technologies do on a daily basis—provide the solutions and technology necessary to nurture and encourage design innovation and development. It’s this desire to inspire innovation through its focus on applications, emerging technologies and practical engineering solutions that makes Agilent proud and honored to serve as EDI CON’s Platinum sponsor in its inaugural year.

Building a Commercial Microwave Ecosystem in China
Deng Jie, General Manager, ZTE Microwave Products Group
ZTE contributes greatly to the rapid growth of China’s telecom industry. Now it starts to reproduce its success in the commercial microwave radio market. With the fast deployment of 3G and LTE technology, the microwave radio market is growing steadily and has reached 50 Billion RMB Yuan in revenue. By developing and manufacturing microwave radio product, ZTE Microwave has created great opportunities for domestic and international microwave suppliers to grow their business in China. From ICs and passive components to radio subsystems, from microwave accessories to test and measurement equipment, ZTE Microwave has generated strong demand and is fueling the growth of the entire microwave supply chain in China.
Progress of Microwave Time and Frequency Metrology at the BIRMM
Feng Keming, General Director, Beijing Institute of Radio Metrology and Measurements
This presentation will report the newest research work on measurement standards and calibration in radio, microwave, time and frequency metrology fields. A new wideband microwave power measurement standard and radiometer calibration sets will be described, it will also show the newest performance of a satellite-borne Rubidium atomic clock in a compass navigation system. In addition, it will show the further effort aimed at a high performance passive Hydrogen atomic clock and introduce a small size H-maser for timekeeping.
