Weeks of truth

I do not doubt the truth of these numbers and I am quite sure that all the measures that have been taken to date are correct. It is still necessary to limit the spread, even if some people reject the inconvenience. With our current actions we are laying the foundation for the coming year and whether we will see face-to-face events again in the spring.

Weeks of truth

...lie before us. Infections are again increasing, and the virus continues to dominate our lives, both privately and professionally. I do not doubt the truth of these numbers and I am quite sure that all the measures that have been taken to date are correct. It is still necessary to limit the spread, even if some people reject the inconvenience. With our current actions we are laying the foundation for the coming year and whether we will see face-to-face events again in the spring. The recent decisions around embedded world and APEC are no surprise to me. I believe that the longer the situation lasts and the more we get used to holding meetings and events virtually, the harder it will be for us to return to so-called “business as usual”.

It is true that many jobs can be carried out working from home. This is a possibility available at our publishing house. We ourselves are free to decide whether we meet in the office or not. Since we are a pure family business, we have decided that we will work in the office until further notice, knowing that we could switch to "remote working" at any time.

Good news is rare these days, so it is good to hear that the number of vehicles with full or partial electric drives is constantly growing. This trend is just at the beginning and there is a lot of persuasion that will still have to be made to potential buyers. In addition to the range, I see the reliability of these vehicles as an important characteristic. Since both of these issues relate, in part, to Power Electronics and Semiconductors, your focus can help. Wide bandgap power semiconductors will help increase efficiency and high-quality components, such as modules, will help to further promote acceptance. If this sounds familiar to you, do not forget to register at www.power-conference.com for our digital event in December.

Another cornerstone is being laid these days: we are busy negotiating contracts for 2021 with our partners and I am happy to say that most of our supporters have already confirmed. We must not forget that without our advertising partners we would not be able to offer our magazine free of charge to qualified readers. If you are interested in supporting our publication, please download our new 2021 Media Kit. You can find it on our website at "About / Media".

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:
The cold season is coming. There are some relatively simple things that can be controlled to save energy. Is my heating technically ok? Are the wool socks ready? Do I have to run these hundreds of outdoor lights?

Best regards
Holger
