Let's Keep Trade Free!

I'm sure many of you are enjoying, or about to enjoy, a well-earned holiday season – I’m wishing everyone the rest they need to be ready for the remainder of the year! For me, the beautiful country of Denmark has always been a good holiday destination. When away, I remember very well how it was to call home - stuffing dozens of coins into the phone box and experiencing a really bad connection. Today, helped by the abolition of roaming charges in most European countries, phone calls are easy. We are always close to our families and friends through various channels. It is nice to see that even members of the older generation have quickly learned to enjoy frequent communication.

Working at Bodo’s means one thing above all else: communication with people and companies from all over the planet! Our customers can be found from Russia to India, from Japan to Canada, everywhere in Europe, in China and the US. I am worried by the threats to free international trade in the news these days. Surely the benefits of global trade and cooperation in research and development should be available to everyone. The world has become so small as a result of technological advances that no one can afford to be marginalized - all should benefit.

We are very happy every month to give talented and established authors the opportunity to present their information globally. Their latest results are made available to a broad audience. And we attach great importance to imparting basic knowledge to young engineers. In this issue, the renowned expert Dr.-Ing. Artur Seibt, from Vienna, takes on this task once again and describes relationships between component size and thermal management, and some of the associated practical issues. Our readers can benefit from his extensive experience. The ubiquitous hot topic of Wide Band Gap Transistors is included - certainly worth reading, though it will take some time.

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. They publish our content exclusively on www.eepower.com. If you speak the language, or just want to have a look, don’t miss our Chinese version: www.bodospowerchina.com

My Green Power Tip for the Month:
Have you ever thought about changing the way you travel to work? Could an e-bike be an option? I've been using mine for two months now and it has turned out to be one of the best decisions in a long time!

Best Regards
Holger
