Richardson RFPD Inc. announced its sponsorship of a small cell workshop at the 2015 Electronic Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON 2015).

EDI CON 2015 will be held from April 14 -16 at the China National Convention Center in Beijing, China. Richardson RFPD's small cell workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, April 15, from 2:15 p.m. to 2:55 p.m., local time, in room 406 of the Convention Center.

The small cell market is rapidly changing, with the traditional view of small cells primarily filling coverage gaps in homes being supplanted by the need for high LTE data rates and reliable QoS in urban environments and inside non-residential buildings. The small cell workshop will address these market trends and the technology supporting these changes, as well as review some of the newest RF components that will help meet these challenges.

Richardson RFPD's Small Cell workshop will be presented by Jason Su, business development director of Richardson RFPD Greater China. The workshop will also feature new products for small cell applications from some of the world's leading suppliers: • ANADIGICS • Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) • Freescale Semiconductor • Lime Microsystems • MACOM Technology Solutions (MACOM) • Peregrine Semiconductor • Qorvo • Skyworks Solutions Inc.

EDI CON is an industry-driven conference/exhibition targeting RF, microwave, EMC/EMI, and high-speed digital design engineers and system integrators developing products for today's communication, computing, RFID, wireless, navigation, aerospace and related markets. The technical program and exhibition includes the leading international RFIC, component and material manufacturers, semiconductor foundries, EDA software and test equipment/solution providers. This year’s conference features the most recent trends in high-frequency electronics and wireless communication technology, addressing all aspects of design, simulation and test verification through an understanding of system requirements for wireless communication networks such as small cell infrastructure, SATCOM and microwave backhaul.
