The EDI CON 2014 technical conference and exhibition attracted over 2,000 attendees for this 3 day industry-driven event held april 8-10 in Beijing, China. With a focus on RF/Microwave and high-speed electronic design, delegates and exhibiting companies shared information on the latest design tools and components targeting telecommunications, satellite navigation systems, radar and more.

April 8-10, 2014
Beijing, China

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 integrated technical program and exhibition presents hands-on, practical solutions for enhancing physical design at the semiconductor, module, PCB and system-levels, bringing together designers at the forefront of Chinese innovation and the world's leading technology companies.


The EDI CON 2014 plenary sessions will open the EDI CON technical program on April 8th at 9:30 am in the Beijing International Conference Center's main auditorium. Two sessions will feature guests from leading research institutes, universities and industry with opening remarks from this year’s Chair Emeritus, Dr. Professor Song Junde of the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications. Also featured in the opening plenary session will be Dr. Erping Li, Chair Professor RF and Nanoelectronics Research Center, Zhejiang University and Keming Feng, General Manager, Beijing Institute of Radio Metrology and Measurements and Mario
, Marketing Manager of Agilent Technologies. The second plenary session will examine current and future trends in telecommunications with keynote talks from Corbett Rowell of China Mobile Research Institute, James Kimery, Marketing Director with National Instruments and Josef Wolf, Director of Spectrum/Network Network Analysis and EMC, Rohde & Schwarz.

3 Day peer-reviewed industry-focused technical conference

  • 86 peer reviewed papers
  • 30 workshops
  • 5 panel sessions
  • 1 Agilent Education forum
  • 8 keynote talks from Industry executives, leading researchers and academics

Invited and submitted papers are reviewed by the EDI CON organizers and the technical advisory committee, which represents leading experts in the areas of EMC, circuit and system simulation, test verification, RFIC, MMIC and high-speed semiconductors, passive components, and system integration. The technical sessions are organized around tracks focused on RF, microwave and high-speed digital design, RF/mW measurement and modeling, EMC/EMI, high-speed digital measurements and modeling, system-level measurements and modeling, system engineering and commercial resources.


Workshops provide a forum for industry practitioners to share information on specific challenging and emerging topics related to high-frequency/high-speed electronic design. Workshop sponsors are responsible for developing the content according to the guidelines set by the EDI CON organizers. Workshops are an interactive experience, allowing extra time for audience questions and participation, which may include demonstrations and opportunities to work with design software and/or measurement equipment.


EDI CON 2014 will feature five special expert panels discussing specific topics impacting technology today. Led by a moderator with interaction from audience members, experts will provide a brief overview of their position on the challenges and potential solutions impacting a specific technology or application. Panel themes will include the State of GaN in China, MIMO OTA test, EDA design flows, Aligning RF semiconductor technology to end-use applications, and Trends in future telecommunications systems and their engineering challenges.
