About DesignCon


Now in its 22nd year, DesignCon is the premier educational conference and technology exhibition for electronic design engineers in the high speed communications and semiconductor communities.

Taking place annually in Silicon Valley, DesignCon was created by engineers for engineers and remains the largest gathering of chip, board and systems designers in the country. Combining technical paper sessions, tutorials, industry panels, product demos and exhibits, DesignCon brings engineers the latest theories, methodologies, techniques, applications and demonstrations on PCB design tools, power and signal integrity, jitter and crosstalk, high-speed serial design, test and measurement tools, parallel and memory interface design, ICs, semiconductor components and more.

DesignCon enables chip, board, and systems designers, software developers and silicon manufacturers to:

  • Grow their design expertise
  • Learn about and see the latest advanced design technologies and tools from top vendors in the industry
  • Network with and gain inspiration from fellow engineers and design engineering experts
