EDI CON USA Announces Keynote Speakers for Upcoming Conference in Santa Clara

EDI CON USA has released the names of its plenary keynote speakers for its upcoming 2018 conference to be held in Santa Clara, California on October 17 and 18. All pass-holders will be eligible to see the speakers, Ovi Jacob and Ransom Stephens, talk on alternate days with each starting from 11:30 am.

EDI CON USA 2018 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 the event 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, interactive sessions, speed trainings, networking opportunities, and educational talks that address all aspects of design, simulation, test, and verification.

At the event, on October 17, Ovi Jacob, Director of Business Development at Vayyar Imaging, will provide a fascinating glimpse at technology that is changing the world, and our ability to survive in it. In his talk, “Looking Deeper: Using Radar to Save Lives and Improve the World”, Jacob will address how radar is being used for life-saving cancer detection, as well as in everyday applications in automobiles and smart homes. In short, novel uses of radar are improving the world.

On day two, October 18th, Ransom Stephens, an industry icon, author, and physicist extraordinaire, will provide his humorous and slightly irreverent take on innovation in his talk “Innovation, Incorporation, and Integrity”. In this keynote, Stephens promises to provide a perspective-altering view of your role in the company you work for: why you should stay, when you should walk, and how you can run.

In addition to the above plenary keynote talks, EDI CON USA offers two full days of technical programming including EDI CON University, the 5G Symposium, the High-Speed Digital Symposium, technical papers, workshops, and panels. The event also includes a celebration of innovation in the EDI CON EXPO hall, complete with show-floor networking opportunities and speed trainings.
