Updated: UBM's DesignCon Online Community Provides Technical Information 24/7

NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  UBM DeusM (, the integrated marketing services arm of UBM, and UBM Electronics (, the daily source of essential business and technical information for the design engineering and electronics industry's decision makers, today, in partnership with Agilent Technologies Inc., launched a new site devoted to inspiring and empowering engineers-- the DesignCon Community (


By turning DesignCon, an annual event renowned for its technical learning and community spirit, into a year-round online experience, members can continue their discussions before, during, and after the annual January gala.

"Continuing the DesignCon event experience online with Agilent is a critical part of our overall goal of accelerating the scaling of know-how for engineers struggling with today's design challenges," said Kathy Astromoff, CEO of UBM Electronics. "Few events have the combination of technical strength and community spirit, and we're delighted to partner with them to bring this spirit to life, year-round."

"Agilent's ongoing involvement with industry standards enables us to share our expertise in high-speed digital design to help engineers accelerate their ability to create products to be proud of," said Barry Alcorn, Agilent Americas Market Segment Manager. "We're excited to partner with UBM to deliver this enriched experience."

The new community-based website will comprise blogs from DesignCon Community members, vibrant message boards, live chats, whitepapers, and other educational resources to help the DesignCon Community share in the triumphs and challenges of designing cutting-edge ICs, boards, and systems for the next-generation. The community will be supplemented by a presence on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Leading the site will be Barry Sullivan, PhD, Director of Program Development at the International Engineering Consortium (IEC) and long-time DesignCon conference coordinator. "I see the site as a natural means of keeping the already strong DesignCon community engaged year-round, discussing past conferences, current design issues, and how those issues can be addressed both online and then face-to-face at the next conference," Sullivan said.

The DesignCon Community is published by UBM DeusM and UBM Electronics and Agilent Technologies is the exclusive sponsor.
