Information on Demand

August brought us a period of sunny weather, and once again we were lucky to relax at the Baltic Sea and enjoy all of the fun activities that it offers. This year, more than ever, taking a vacation in your home country is extremely popular. We experienced packed beaches and traffic jams up to the horizon. The authorities here in northern Germany shut down some roads, as beach capacities reached their limit. Also, in some areas even the drinking fountains moved to a critical level. A wise person gave me some advice - which nearly made it to a Green Power Tip. She said “Stop watering the lawn. It’s like a weed - it will always come back”.

August brought us a period of sunny weather, and once again we were lucky to relax at the Baltic Sea and enjoy all of the fun activities that it offers. This year, more than ever, taking a vacation in your home country is extremely popular. We experienced packed beaches and traffic jams up to the horizon. The authorities here in northern Germany shut down some roads, as beach capacities reached their limit. Also, in some areas even the drinking fountains moved to a critical level. A wise person gave me some advice - which nearly made it to a Green Power Tip. She said “Stop watering the lawn. It’s like a weed - it will always come back”.

Travelling, for business or leisure should still be limited as much as possible. It is the right decision that many events are changing their format to digital, as we have done with our annual Power Conference in December. The event will now be held online on December 8th and 9th. The topics will cover Wide Bandgap Semiconductors (SiC and GaN), Passives, and Test/Measurement. Invitations have already been sent to prospective speakers. If, for any reason, you have not heard from us, just reach out to your existing contact and we will be happy to share information. It will be a shame to miss Bavaria in the pre-Christmas season – but let’s hope for a better 2021!

Our successful podium at the PCIM digital days demonstrated that it is possible to share information this way. The tools and apps are getting better and, if you are in a stable network, video sessions are the modern way of collaborating. If you missed the event, you can find all of the presentations on our website within the Wide Bandgap section. During these times, on-demand content is the preferred way of “sitting in” at a conference.

Without travel, there is this problem called time shift. It is simply not possible to find one time which is convenient to everyone: whether you are in Europe, USA or Asia. Nobody wants to spend hours in front of a screen - that is why our magazine and website provides on-demand-information that is narrowed down to individual topics significant to the reader. For all of these reasons, we will continue to make all of our content available online - at your demand! By the way, the magazine has been offering this for more than 14 years already.

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 optimized for mobile devices on the updated website: www.bodospower.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:
If you’re working from home, take advantage of our offer to send your print copy to your home address and help us to save paper by not sending the magazines to Nirvana. Of course, you can change back to your office later. Just e-mail us and we’ll take care of it.

Best regards
