Make the Most from Bodo's WBG Event!

There’s only four weeks to go until this year's Wide Bandgap Event and we have worked really hard over the past few months to create an appealing, easy-to-use website for the event, while also putting together a high-quality program. Please take a look at my event website www.bodoswbg.com. We already have nearly 60 presentations confirmed from the leading experts in our industry, 20 on the first day alone on Silicon Carbide. That's well over three hours of videos plus the four live sessions of 30 minutes each on the actual days! I think we all agree that this is too much information to consume in one day. But don't worry, we've already thought about this in advance and the solution is quite simple: On Demand Content!

Make the Most from Bodo's WBG Event!

There’s only four weeks to go until this year's Wide Bandgap Event and we have worked really hard over the past few months to create an appealing, easy-to-use website for the event, while also putting together a high-quality program. Please take a look at my event website www.bodoswbg.com. We already have nearly 60 presentations confirmed from the leading experts in our industry, 20 on the first day alone on Silicon Carbide. That's well over three hours of videos plus the four live sessions of 30 minutes each on the actual days! I think we all agree that this is too much information to consume in one day. But don't worry, we've already thought about this in advance and the solution is quite simple: On Demand Content!

Most of you will already have noticed that we are making all of the video presentations available one week in advance of the actual event. This will give you the opportunity to view them at the most convenient time for you. So, the only thing you need to schedule are the live Q&As, that way you will make the most from the event!

In the meantime, I would like to make another recommendation and invite you to watch the recordings of the last Expert Talk, which are now available online at www.bodospower.com/wbg.aspx. Once again, it was a very technical discussion, where Dr Alex Lidow and Marco Palma from EPC explained the advantages of GaN for motor drives, Juan Sanchez from Infineon answered questions about the behavior of GaN in hard switching topologies and Ilian Bonov explained how they keep noise and ringing low at Nexperia with their GaN FETs.

No less exciting was the round on SiC. Here our friends from Neubiberg were strongly represented as well. David Levett and Dr Peter Friedrichs from Infineon answered questions regarding the paralleling of SiC MOSFETs and corresponding modules. Dr Friedrichs, who is also the chairman of the last ECPE SiC & GaN user forum, also briefly looked back on the event and shared his impressions. From France we were joined by experts from CALY Technologies, who discussed their SiC current limiter devices and how these can help protect components.

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:
If you have the opportunity, plant a tree in your backyard. I just did this and surprisingly I’m quite excited about how it will develop, and we all know how important trees are for the environment.

Kind regards
Holger
