EDI CON China 2017 Succeeds in Shanghai

May 1, 2017 (Norwood, Mass.) - EDI CON China 2017 enjoyed a successful inaugural conference and exhibition at the Shanghai Convention & Exhibition Center of International Sourcing in Shanghai China on April 25-27, 2017. This was the fifth year for EDI CON CHINA, ,the largest microwave, EMC/EMI and high-speed digital design conference and exhibition in China, but the first time that the event came to Shanghai.

Delivering strong attendance for its first show in the region, EDI CON China welcomed 3,360 total attendees. This year’s conference included partnerships with The China Radar Industry Associations (CRIA), American Certification Body, Inc. (ACB), and EMC 2017.

"We are very pleased with the response from the Shanghai engineering community to EDI CON CHINA," said Ivar Bazzy, President of Horizon House, the conference's organizer. "Local Shanghai engineers and companies requested we bring the show to the area. This event brings together the latest electronic design innovation techniques and products in a single venue in China, and we were happy to offer it in the Shanghai region."

The technical sessions were organized around tracks focused on 5G, test and measurement, radar/communications, amplifiers, RF/microwave, measurement and modeling, high-speed digital, semiconductors, systems, IoT, and EMC/EMI. The exhibition included 94 exhibitors, including Host Sponsor Keysight Technologies, Diamond Sponsor Rohde & Schwarz, and Corporate Sponsor National Instruments.

Next year's event, EDI CON China 2018, will be held at the CNCC in Beijing China on March 20-22, 2018. More information, including an application to exhibit, is available at www.ediconchina.com.

About EDI CON

EDI CON China uniquely brings together RF, microwave, EMC/EMI, and high-speed digital design engineers and system integrators for networking, training, and learning opportunities. Attendees come to EDI CON to find solutions, products, and design ideas that they can put into immediate practice for today's communication, consumer electronics, aerospace, and medical industries.
Drawing attendees from both the analog and digital spheres, EDI CON enables designers to see techniques and technologies used in other applications that could be applied or adapted to solve their latest design challenges. The exhibition hall features product displays, demonstrations, and poster sessions while the conference hosts educational talks and workshops that address all aspects of design, simulation, test, and verification.
