DESIGN West is the world's only technical conference and expo for electronics design engineers, entrepreneurs, and technology professionals who create products with electronic content. Held in the heart of Silicon Valley, it is where the world's top design engineers and product developers gather and learn, gain inspiration, and get practical information and hands-on training they can put to immediate use.
Launched in 2012, the four-day DESIGN West event builds upon the solid foundation of engineering education pioneered by the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC). Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2012, ESC is joined by popular design summits including Black Hat and Android.
The conference features over 150 technical lectures, panels, tutorials, certification programs, and hands-on training sessions taught by the industry's top experts on the most relevant software, hardware, and systems design topics and tools for creating great products.
In addition, the DESIGN West exhibition showcases more than 300 leading edge and early stage electronics design companies, technology-specific zones, and exciting theater presentations. DESIGN West also hosts the annual ACE Awards, a UBM Electronics program honoring the top people and companies behind the technologies and products that are changing the world.
