Keynotes are a great way to gain a high-level insight into important topics. But how does one learn quickly about a lot of more specific subjects? By attending “lightning talks.” It’s like speed dating but with conference papers. Come listen to a collection of 7 to 10-minute conference paper presentations covering a variety of topics and tracks on power coupling, optical transceivers, device-less sensing, power supply noise, power estimation, signal integrity optimization and more.
There is still more to learn at Designcon2020. Here’s but the merest sampling of the technical topics that caught my attention:
Panel – Untangling Standards: The Challenges Inside the Box
Panel – EDA Roadmap for Machine Learning and AI Standardization
Panel – The Cat’s Out of the Box: Quantum Computing and Electronic Design
Panel – 800G & Beyond: Optical Transceiver Technology
Boot Camp – Relating SI and PI for High-Speed Digital Boards: FPGA DDR4 Case Study
Tutorials – Radiated Emissions: Debugging and Pre-Compliance Testing
Tutorial – Electronic/Photonic IC Design for 5G RF Applications
Tutorial – Introduction to the IEEE P370 Standard and It’s Applications for High-Speed Interconnect Characterization
