We're very fortunate to have the insight of over 90 brilliant electronic design experts shaping the content of DesignCon 2018, and I'm confident that both new and returning attendees will find this year's programming highly compelling."

The 2018 agenda features 14 conference tracks covering system co-design, optimizing high-speed serial design, applying test and measurement methodology, modeling and analysis of interconnects and more. In total, attendees will have access to over 100 technical sessions led by experts from the likes of Cisco, Intel, Oracle and Qualcomm. Sample technical sessions include:

Complementing the technical sessions are three full-day boot camps, which take deep dives into core introductory principles on electronic design and engineering. The boot camps, taking place from 9:00 AM- 4:30 PM on Tuesday, January 30, can be utilized as crash courses into notable industry topics such as  high-speed serial design, pragmatic signal integrity and test & measurement techniques.

Additionally, for the first time, DesignCon 2018 will offer continuing education units from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for all sessions attended, giving attendees the opportunity to work toward an official IEEE certificate. IEEE accreditation helps professionals stand out to employers, maintain engineering licenses and meet training requirements.
