Sunny October!

Once again, we will miss another live “Oktoberfest” in Munich along with many other shows and conferences that will continue to be virtual events. However, we are all looking forward to 2022 when live events will take place again.

As long as the corona pandemic is still in our world, we prefer to host our events in a safe environment. Our WBG Power Conference was due to take place at the end of November, but we have now decided that it is better to run this virtually in the first week of December, meaning that all of the speakers from around the world can present in a safe environment. So, mark your calendar for “Bodo’s Wide Bandgap Event” on November 30th to December 3rd, 2021.

Sunny October!

Once again, we will miss another live “Oktoberfest” in Munich along with many other shows and conferences that will continue to be virtual events. However, we are all looking forward to 2022 when live events will take place again.

As long as the corona pandemic is still in our world, we prefer to host our events in a safe environment. Our WBG Power Conference was due to take place at the end of November, but we have now decided that it is better to run this virtually in the first week of December, meaning that all of the speakers from around the world can present in a safe environment. So, mark your calendar for “Bodo’s Wide Bandgap Event” on November 30th to December 3rd, 2021.

The event will focus on the application of wide bandgap devices, together with passive components and magnetics, and the wide field of test & measurement and simulation, which is the bread and butter of the design engineers in the field. Audio presenters will join us virtually from all around the world as will the conference attendees. It is crucial that we continue to educate and implement new designs on wide bandgap semiconductors. This is the way forward: reducing losses with significantly more efficient solutions versus the conceptually designed silicon solutions of the past. Our event will allow designers to address their questions to the auditorium during the virtual conference and understanding the new semiconductor technology is important to speed up progress. We are all looking for zero emissions on our planet and modern electronics is the key to achieving these goals. Waterpower has been with us for many years, while wind and solar is a more recent contributor. Modern power electronics has made it happen.

Because of the corona pandemic we have created a virtual quarterly roundtable, to complement our established annual conference, based on the published wide bandgap articles that have appeared in my magazine. This is my permanent contribution in helping to bridge the gap for missing face to face networking and discussion opportunities. We are all looking forward to getting back to normal whatever normal will be in the future. The pandemic has taught us to use electronic communication more efficiently. Travel will be planned very carefully and knowing the risks, many companies may still prefer to continue to stay virtual to stay safe.

It is always good to see companies celebrating their anniversary, such as Rohm celebrating 50 years. Looking back, I began to study electronic engineering 50 years ago. Time flies by!

Bodo’s magazine is delivered by postal service to all places in the world. It is the only magazine that spreads technical information on power electronics globally. We have EETech as a partner serving North America efficiently. If you are using any kind of tablet or smart phone, you will find all our content on the website eepower.com. If you speak the language, or just want to have a look, don’t miss our Chinese version: bodospowerchina.com

My Green Power Tip for the Month:
Keep your car in good shape. That saves the time and money to building a new one.
My 47 years old Beatle convertible just passed the safety inspection without any comments!

Kind regards
Bodo
