What's EDSFair

One of the Three Largest Trade Shows in the World

EDSFair is one of the three largest trade shows in the world in the field of semiconductor and electronic system design, along with the US Design Automation Conference (DAC) and Design, Automation Test in Europe (DATE). Here all the latest technologies from around the world can found at one venue.

Continuously Growing Semiconductor Market

Japan's semiconductor market is expected to average 4% growth annually thanks to robust demand for consumer digital equipment such as flat panel display TVs and the widespread adoption of 3G mobile phones. Further growth is expected as the global market as a whole adopts the latest technologies that enable ubiquitous computing.

For the Next Generation

At the EDSFair discover a world of innovative new technologies rarely seen in day-to-day business. Actively promoting human resource training, this event provides young engineers with opportunities to gather the latest information. EDSFair is a business trade show engineered specifically to foster development of the industry.

Emerging Company Area

This is an new area designed especially for domestic and overseas emerging companies that offer industry solutions. So as to provide the latest information to design engineers, this area has a presentation stage as well as booth areas set aside for business discussions.

Special Stage

The Special Presentation Stage is mainly used for talks aimed at young engineers who are actively involved in ongoing projects. New vendors will be introduced, as will new discoveries.

University Plaza

In order to promote increased collaboration between the business and academic worlds, as well as to foster new developments in Japan's design technologies, EDSFair offers an opportunity for Japanese and foreign universities to present the results of their research projects.

Enhancing Customer Satisfaction

A number of seminars and mini-events are planned to meet the needs of design engineers. This will make the EDSFair the ideal venue for better understanding customer requirements and thus increasing business opportunities.

Product demonstrations in booths and Suites

By making use of the synergies generated by presentations at open booths and more personalized suite-based demonstrations for select groups, exhibitors will be able to gather information on potential customer needs from different perspectives.

Exhibitor Seminars

Exhibitors can effectively demonstrate their technologies and products free of charge at seminars. Each year, over 3,000 visitors attend more than 100 of these seminars, making this a very popular part of the trade fair offering something for all participants.

15th FPGA/PLD Design Conference

This is the only conference in Japan that specializes in FPGA/PLD and it is an invaluable opportunity to obtain the latest information on FPGA/PLD - design methods, business activities and trends.
