November 30, 2016 (Norwood, Mass.) – EDI CON USA
2017, an event that brings together engineers working on high-frequency analog and high-speed digital
designs, will take place at the Hynes Convention Center, September 11-13 in Boston,
Bringing together engineers working in RF/microwave with those working in high-speed digital, EDI
CON USA offers an opportunity to learn from other disciplines and transfer techniques and methods between
applications. The exhibit floor will include booths from industry-leading companies working in both
of these areas, as well as feature the SI ZONE, a specialized demo area for signal integrity, power
integrity, and EMI/EMC products. The exhibit hall will also feature the popular Frequency Matters Theater,
which offers speed training, presentations, and lectures for all pass holders during the two exhibition
This year, EDI CON USA will feature a 3-day conference, with extended tutorials and short courses
on Monday, September 11, followed by technical papers, workshops, and panels on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The conference focuses on actionable, educational sessions rather than product pitches and commercial
presentations. According to one conference attendee from EDI CON USA 2016, “It is wonderful to have
so many specialists in one place. You can get your problems solved. This is a great conference.” The
technical sessions will be organized around tracks focused on RF, microwave, and high-speed digital
design (including signal integrity, power integrity, and EMC/EMI), modeling and measurement topics.
This year, EDI CON USA is the only RF/microwave industry conference and exhibition in the continental
USA, and the largest high-speed technical conference on the US East Coast. Event organizers plan to
add local private busing for Boston area residents as well as partner programs and group/alumni discounts.
Networking opportunities will abound on the exhibit floor, and attendees can enjoy a welcome reception
and a happy hour. So, save the date, and make plans to attend and participate in the second annual EDI
EDI CON USA 2017 is supported by its primary media sponsors,
Microwave Journal and the
Signal Integrity Journal.

January 2017. For future planning, EDI CON USA 2018 will be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center
(Santa Clara, CA) on October 17-19, 2018.
About EDI CON USA
EDI CON USA 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
USA to find solutions, products, and design ideas that they can put into immediate practice for today's
communication, defense, 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, design contests, interactive sessions, speed
trainings, networking opportunities, and educational talks that address all aspects of design, simulation,
test, and verification.
About the Organizers
EDI CON USA is organized by Microwave Journal, the Signal Integrity Journal, and the event planning
division of their parent company, Horizon House. Microwave Journal, Signal Integrity Journal, and Horizon
House also team with Microwave Journal China and ACT International (Hong Kong) to organize and produce
EDI CON China (April 25-27, 2017 in Shanghai, China). An experienced and well-established organizer
of targeted events, Horizon House additionally organizes European Microwave Week (EuMW) on behalf of
the European Microwave Association (EuMA) and the M2M Zone at CTIA Super Mobility Week/Mobile World
The EDI CON technical program is developed in collaboration with leading international technology
companies and experts in high-frequency and high-speed electronic design with experience ranging from
modeling and design to component characterization, system integration, and verification.
