Jan 24, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- UBM Tech, a daily source of business and technical information for the electronics industry's decision makers, announced it is gearing up to welcome thousands of manufacturers, engineers and industry executives to its annual DesignCon conference and expo.

According to a release, DesignCon 2013, which will take place January 28-31, in Santa Clara, Calif., will feature three keynotes, two live teardowns conducted by the hardware repair wizards of iFixit and more than 120 in-depth tutorials, technical paper sessions, training sessions and panel discussions all customized for the chip, board and systems design communities.

Replete with technical content designed to facilitate learning, networking and overall industry success, the 14-track DesignCon conference program addresses the pervasive challenge of signal integrity at all levels of electronic design. Featuring more than 130 exhibitors, an educational forum sponsored by Agilent Technologies, the annual Design Vision awards, and the Chiphead Theater, which will host two live product teardowns along with speed training demonstrations, panel discussions, the Best in Test Awards and DesignTOUR drawings, the DesignCon expo also features the in-depth and industry-specific content that adds to DesignCon's reputation as the definitive annual event for the semiconductor and electronic design engineering communities.
