Richardson RFPD Announces Sponsorship of EDI CON 2017 GaN Panel

Additional information on the workshop, as well as a featured lineup of industry-leading suppliers and new products, will be available at the Richardson RFPD booth #112.

April 5, 2017 – Geneva, Ill.: Richardson RFPD, Inc. announces today its sponsorship of the Electronic Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON) 2017 GaN Panel workshop.

EDI CON 2017 will be held from April 25th through 27th at the Shanghai Convention & Exhibition Center of International Sourcing in Shanghai, China. Richardson RFPD's GaN Panel is scheduled for Wednesday, April 26th, 14:50 to 15:30 (local time), in Room 302A.

The GaN Panel, this year entitled, “The Future Outlook of RF GaN: Applications and Performance,” will be a moderated round table discussion featuring gallium nitride (GaN) experts from MACOM, NXP, Strategy Analytics and Wolfspeed.

The proliferation of GaN in commercial RF applications is reaching a critical mass, which creates a virtuous cycle as the price/performance tradeoffs open even more opportunities to use GaN. The participants in the panel represent several companies invested in RF GaN, and multiple points of view will be discussed. The panel will be moderated by Gary Lerude, Technical Editor of Microwave Journal. Additional details are available online.

EDI CON is an industry-driven conference/exhibition targeting RF, microwave, EMC/EMI, and high-speed digital design engineers and system integrators developing products for today's communication, computing, RFID, wireless, navigation, aerospace and related markets. The technical program and exhibition includes the leading international RFIC, component and material manufacturers, semiconductor foundries, EDA software and test equipment/solution providers.
