Innovation in Phased Arrays: Past, Present, and Future
May 12, 2016 (Norwood, Mass.) – EDI CON USA 2016, a conference that brings together engineers working on high-frequency
analog and high-speed digital designs, taking place September 20-22 in Boston, Mass. at the Hynes Convention Center, is
pleased to announce Tom Sikina, Principal Engineering Fellow at Raytheon Co. as a keynote speaker in the EDI CON USA Plenary
Session that will be held on Tuesday, September 20 at 4:30 PM.
As a renowned expert with more than 35 years of experience in a wide range of antenna design and development, Tom Sikina
will take the EDI CON USA stage to discuss, "Innovation in Phased Arrays: Past, Present, and Future." Sikina will trace
the development of phased array antennas, beginning with the earliest concepts developed by industry giants, such as Maxwell
and Hertz, through to contemporary developments and innovations occurring today, such as adaptive arrays, MIMO, and phased
array systems that are enabling remote sensing and multichannel communication systems. In keeping with the theme of the
Electronic Design Innovation (EDI) conference (CON), Sikina promises to "trace a pathway of human discovery, often with
amusing and amazing stories."
Raytheon Co. is a conference sponsor for EDI CON USA 2016. In addition to the Plenary Session, the EDI CON technical
conference will include 30-minute technical sessions, 40-minute workshops, short courses, keynote talks, and panels, as
well as educational and training programming in the Frequency Matters Theater and poster sessions on the exhibition floor.
EDI CON USA is a technical conference and exhibition that is designed for engineers and system integrators working with
current technologies and methodologies to develop the electronic systems required today. Building on four successful years
in China, the EDI CON event platform is launching in the USA starting in Boston, Mass. where there is a high concentration
of electronic design engineers including both high-frequency and high-speed digital designers working in the commercial
as well as aerospace markets. Organizers expect to attract more than 3,000 attendees during the 3-day event with close to
100 technical presentations, including workshops, short courses, and panels. The technical sessions will be arranged around
tracks that are focused on RF & microwave design, high-speed digital design, measurement & modeling, systems engineering,
and 5G advanced communications. Information about exhibition space and sponsorship is available at
http://ediconusa.com/exhibitors.asp. Conference registration
will open in June 2016. More information is available at http://www.ediconusa.com/.
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
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 will address all aspects of design, simulation, test, and verification.
About the Organizers
EDI CON USA is organized by Microwave Journal and the event
planning division of its parent company, Horizon House. Microwave Journal and Horizon House also team with Microwave Journal
China and ACT International (Hong Kong) to organize and produce EDI CON 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 several major microwave related conferences/exhibitions such as the M2M and Mobile Backhaul Zones
at CTIA Super Mobility. The EDI CON 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.
