Keysight EDA Connect World Tour: Powering Shift-Left with the Modern Design Center

The official countdown to the 2024 Keysight EDA Connect World Tour has begun. Keysight will be hosting a global series of in-person educational and networking events for electronic design engineers and industry leaders across 20 locations in over 4 regions. Attendees will have an opportunity to choose from a broad range of technical presentations, educational tracks, hands-on tutorials, panel discussions and networking opportunities with Keysight product leaders. Kicking off on January 15, 2024, the Tour covers a wide array of topics, from load-pull design techniques and chipset design to rapid electromagnetic (EM)-circuit co-design and the application of artificial intelligence (AI) in radio frequency (RF) design. These innovations serve as key enablers for achieving faster time-to-market and driving bold design breakthroughs. 

The rapid emergence of transformative technologies like 5G non-terrestrial networks and chiplets is undeniably reshaping our world. To realize the potential of these innovations across the globe, Keysight is hosting a series of technical seminars, carefully designed to deliver actionable “shift-left” best practices in various applications.
