EDI CON Online, a new interactive event being held online September 10-12, 2019, has announced its line up of technical session speakers. The interactive technical sessions will occur at no cost to attendees, and sponsors have the opportunity to present workshops and keynote sessions as part of the daily schedule.

The sessions on September 10th will focus on 5G and IoT, September 11th on radar and antennas and September 12th on signal integrity and power integrity. Attendees select the sessions for the online event in a single sign-on registration portal and can participate in as many sessions as they wish live (with question and answer sessions) or watch later on demand. Sessions are produced on a multimedia platform, including video, traditional webinar and screen sharing formats.
