Horizon House and Microwave Journal China announced that Agilent Technologies will be the Host Sponsor of the Electronic Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON) 2014 in Beijing, China, April 8-10, 2014. As the Host Sponsor, Agilent Technologies will assume a leading role in driving the technical conference and working with the conference organizers to align the program with the educational interests of the attending RF, microwave and high-speed digital design engineers and system integrators.

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.

As the Host Sponsor, Agilent will coordinate three 40 minute workshops and an Agilent education forum addressing aspects of high-frequency electronic design, measurement and system integration based on the company’s latest test solutions and trends occurring within China relating to telecommunications, such as TD-LTE, 802.11ac and ad, small cell, carrier aggregation, MIMO, envelope tracking, etc. Agilent experts from North America and China will be on hand at this annual event to work directly with engineers working on next generation high-frequency designs. The company will also present its vision of market and technology trends in the plenary keynote sessions. Agilent Technologies will be the exclusive host of the EDI CON opening reception dinner, a networking event that is open to all attending conference delegates and VIPs.
