Electronic design and test days 2021

Delivering expertise - high quality presentations, technology knowledge, resources and application demos - free of charge

Join us for two full days of insights on high speed digital design and power electronic topics at the virtual Electronic Design and Test Days, April 13-14, 2021

Hosted from the virtual, digitalized version of Rohde & Schwarz headquarters, the agenda comprises live keynote sessions from leading industry and Rohde & Schwarz experts. The event features also a wide variety of topical subjects, available continuously on demand throughout each day in a virtual exhibition and educational area. You will also have the opportunity to chat with our experts and ask them questions.

The conference area is divided into two days:

  • High speed digital design, April 13
  • Power electronics, April 14.

Each day from 09:00 to 17:00 CET.

High speed digital design topics:

  • A look into the SIPI toolbox - new tools and why they matter
  • High-speed digital – succeed in validation, debug and compliance

Power electronics topics:

  • Component evaluation and testing
  • Switching analysis and converter design
  • Batteries & BMS
  • EMI debugging for power devices
