Counting the Days to PCIM

The first half of the year is always a busy period. We are just back from California and the APEC show ! Gary Dolny accompanied us and, as an expert with decades of experience, he knew just which sessions were most important. Keep an eye out for his summary in our upcoming issue. For Bodo and I, we could concentrate on seeing the show and meeting our numerous clients, partners and friends. It’s been a trip full of good impressions - on the professional side as well as personally. Seeing Venice Beach and the Golden Gate Bridge again, 13 years after my first visit, is another beautiful memory.

Next month the destination for the power community will be Nuremberg in Germany. I was there in February for embedded world and I can assure you that the public transportation system (which I used for the first time) works perfectly. Transit service from the airport into the city as well as after the show back to the airport by underground was absolutely smooth. Even when the show closed for the evening and hundreds of visitors hit the station, I only waited 10 minutes for the train. Did you know that Nuremberg has the first subway system worldwide, in which both driver-operated trains and computer-controlled trains share the tracks?

At PCIM our booth will again be in Hall 7, #540. Visit us for a chat, or better yet a short rest and a water - running around those halls is tiring! This year, Bodo’s traditional podium discussion, on WBG devices and applications, will also be held in this Hall 7. The Podium location is only a few steps away from our booth - very convenient. Beside this new location, there will be a "Meet the Speakers" lounge, where you can have a discussion with our speakers after their presentation. This is totally new, and I'm excited to see the results – lots of good discussion I hope. We’ve invited the Wide Band Gap experts and a chat with them will be insightful.

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 to serve North America efficiently. If you are using any kind of tablet or smart phone, you will find all of our content on the website If you speak the language, or just want to have a look, don't miss our Chinese version:

My Green Power Tip for the Month:
We should encourage our children to become involved in "Fridays for Future", instead of threatening them with penalties for staying away from class. The kids are right !
