Only Good News, Please!

Happy New Year to all our readers, partners and friends. Bodo's team is looking forward to producing another 12 issues of the power electronics magazine of your choice. These will of course, like all their predecessors, be added directly to the archive on our website for all our e-book friends. On the same website, you will also find the latest industry news and our famous event calendar. I've heard a few times now that it is a welcome and helpful tool for planning events and trips throughout the year. We work hard to keep it as current as possible, so take advantage of this information so early in the year. Speaking of news: as an attentive reader of our magazine, you may have noticed over the past few years that we rarely include bad news in our updates.

Only Good News, Please!

Happy New Year to all our readers, partners and friends. Bodo's team is looking forward to producing another 12 issues of the power electronics magazine of your choice. These will of course, like all their predecessors, be added directly to the archive on our website for all our e-book friends. On the same website, you will also find the latest industry news and our famous event calendar. I've heard a few times now that it is a welcome and helpful tool for planning events and trips throughout the year. We work hard to keep it as current as possible, so take advantage of this information so early in the year. Speaking of news: as an attentive reader of our magazine, you may have noticed over the past few years that we rarely include bad news in our updates. This is because general news in the newspapers is often bad and we don't want to publish this negative news from our industry. So, if you're looking for the latest bankruptcies, mass layoffs, and factory closures, you're sure to find them elsewhere. We will continue to focus on announcements of technical achievements, product releases, event news and innovations in power electronics. And we'll be on the lookout for good news, like global warming being stopped or peace becoming a reality. It's the beginning of the year, wishes and dreams are still allowed!

Other good news is that our recent Bodo's Wide Bandgap event was again a great success. Some numbers: We saw over 50 technical presentations, nearly 500 minutes of content. Bodo spoke with 51 speakers during the 12 live Q &A s on Zoom. Two-thirds of the attendees were from Europe, but one-third was from overseas, confirming that it was the right decision to schedule the event in the European afternoon time so that everyone could attend. Ok, so one speaker from Asia said that it was quite late or early for him, depending on how you look at it. But he enjoyed the session, believe me! We are already looking forward to the next event, preferably in Munich. We will keep you updated in the magazine and on our digital channels.

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 our clients in North America. If you speak the language, or just want to have a look, don’t miss our Chinese version at bodospowerchina.com. An archive of my magazine with every single issue is available for free at my website bodospower.com.

My Green Power Tip for the Month:
This tip will probably soon be obsolete, but as long as there are cars with internal combustion engines: remember that it is not necessary to run the engine to defrost the windows. Sacrifice those five minutes and freezing fingers for the climate!

Happy New Year
Holger
