Keynote topics will be posted online within the next two weeks.

DesignCon 2011 will welcome back the IP Summit, as well as premiere the PCB Summit, as special-featured programs of the conference and exhibition. As the industry increasingly relies on semiconductor IP to provide product differentiation and to quickly and efficiently deliver complex design, the IP Summit sessions will help attendees stay on the leading edge of IP design. In addition to dedicated session programming tackling the latest industry topics, participants will have an opportunity to join technology demonstrations offering solutions to pressing design challenges.

The PCB Summit will focus on the sophisticated PCB subsystem addressing not only the characteristics of the board and the wiring embedded in it, but also how it interacts with the devices mounted. For the latest industry perspectives on PCBs including programming on advanced materials, technologies, and tools and techniques for high-performance board design, join the PCB Summit.

"It's a honor to have such well known and respected industry luminaries who are responsible for the development of some of the most advanced technologies within the industry," said Ron Wilson, Editorial Director, EDN and EE Times Design Lines. "We've focused on bringing quality into every minute of the conference from keynotes to technical sessions to the dedicated IP and PCB sessions. DesignCon 2011 will build on a long established legacy of excellence as one of the most important conferences in the electronics industry."
