EDI CON China 2016 has added two new industry leading conferences to the event this year. The China Electrotechnical Society’s EMC China and the China Radar Industry Association conference, in partnership with the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), will co-locate with EDI CON China 2016, greatly expanding the technical program and audience. All three events will hold their conferences together at the China National Convention Center (CNCC) in Beijing, April 19-21, forming the largest high frequency/high speed design conference and exhibition in Beijing. Delegates will be able to attend five parallel tracks in the EDI CON China program, four parallel tracks in the EMC China program and a two-day radar conference organized by the China Radar Industry Association, offering something for every engineer involved in the area of high frequency and high speed design.

EDI CON China 2016 has scheduled 80 paper sessions, 30 workshops, seven keynotes and two panel sessions for the conference. The first day, Tuesday April 19th, features a new track on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) semiconductor technology. The SOI semiconductor track will feature a keynote talk by Peter Rabbeni, senior director of RF business development and product marketing at GLOBALFOUNDRIES, who will discuss the emergence of SOI in the RF/microwave industry. Sessions from Peregrine, Skyworks, AnalogSmith Design Solutions and Shanghai Jiao Tong University will follow the keynote on SOI. There is also a track on GaN amplifier design including a two hour short course given by Zhancang Wang, author of the book, “Envelope Tracking Power Amplifiers for Wireless Communications,” and former employee of Microsoft/Nokia. He will teach “What is New after 80 Years: The Doherty Amplifier and His Load Modulation Pals.” 

There are also tracks on testing for Satellite Applications and PCB/Packaging Modeling plus full day tracks on System Level Measurement/Modeling and Systems Engineering. Tuesday concludes with the keynote talks starting with EDI CON China 2016 Chairman, Dr. Wai Chen, chief scientist and general manager, Internet of Things Research Institute at China Mobile, followed by
EDI CON China’s premier sponsors: Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz and National Instruments.

Wednesday features a full day 5G Forum that will kick off with planned keynote speakers from China Mobile plus a panel session about the latest accomplishments in 5G research with panelists from China Mobile, Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz, National Instruments and Analog Devices. There will also be featured tracks on Amplifier Modeling/Measurement, IoT Design, mmWave Applications, High Speed Digital Design, EMC/EMI Measurement/Modeling and System Level Measurement (LTE, Wi-Fi/802.11xx, radar, satellite communications and GNSS).

Also starting on Wednesday, the China Radar Industry Association conference begins its two-day seminar with planned keynote talks addressing the latest advances in radar, phased arrays and space-based radar given by high-profile experts in the industry from China and the United States. Dr. Eli Brookner, a leading radar expert who worked for Raytheon for more than 50 years, will give an update on “Advances in Radar and Phased Array Technology” and Dr. Ben De from the Chinese Academy of Engineering will discuss “Airborne Fire Control Radar Development and Trends.” Dr. Eli Brookner will also give a two-hour short course entitled, “Review of Basics and New Advancements in Phased Arrays and MIMO Radar” that afternoon.

The Thursday conference tracks cover mmWave Measurement/Modeling, RF/High Speed/EMC Measurement/Modeling topics and Systems Level Design and Measurement. The China Radar Industry Association and EMC China conferences continue on Thursday finishing up the three-day program of events that will include talks from many of the Chinese Institutes such as CETC 10, 14 and 38.

The EMC China conference includes four parallel tracks taking place Tuesday through Thursday. The
EDI CON poster sessions will include about 20 papers and be on display during the full event with the authors on site to answer questions right after lunch time on Tuesday and Wednesday. The tea breaks will include lucky draws with a grand prize given away during the Thursday morning break. In addition, Thursday afternoon will include an awards session for various papers and poster sessions given at the conference.

EDI CON China has grown quickly by consistently adding relevant content, securing key partnerships and speakers, and attracting companies with worldwide reach.
