RF/Microwave Industry Returns to Boston for EDICON (.PDF Download)

Given a late-summer chance to gather in Boston, a healthy portion of the RF/microwave industry came together this September for the second-ever U.S. running of the Electronic Design Innovation Conference & Exhibition (EDICON), held in the Hynes Convention Center.

The conference and exhibition drew a broad cross section of the industry, from amplifier designers to software and test equipment suppliers, with the common themes of 5G and more millimeter-wave applications running through many of the technical presentations and at the exhibition booths. Visitors to the show were knowledgeable, and many appear to be preparing for the coming of 5G wireless networks—and what that will mean for them and their companies.

Held Sept. 11-13, the 2017 edition of EDICON attracted thousands of visitors and more than 100 industry company exhibitors, showing everything from tiny active devices to large test systems. The show floor provided a representative sampling of the industry, with opportunities for visitors to pick up free demonstration copies of design and test software and learn more about new developments at some of the leading companies.
