Bodo’s 6th WBG Event

I can still remember how Bodo first thought of the idea of launching an event on Wide Bandgap Technology. That was back in November 2016, and the enormous potential of this technology was already clear to him then that wide bandgap semiconductors will become the key elements in future designs. And, as far as I remember, there were not many events covering WBG at this time.
Looking at the list of speakers from the initial event in 2017 it shows that nearly all companies from the first event are also taking part in this year's sixth edition, either under their original names or under the umbrella of a new organization. We have also noticed a constant increase in the number of sessions per event throughout the years, which shows the relevance and importance of Wide Bandgap in particular, and power electronics in general.

Bodo’s 6th WBG Event

I can still remember how Bodo first thought of the idea of launching an event on Wide Bandgap Technology. That was back in November 2016, and the enormous potential of this technology was already clear to him then that wide bandgap semiconductors will become the key elements in future designs. And, as far as I remember, there were not many events covering WBG at this time.
Looking at the list of speakers from the initial event in 2017 it shows that nearly all companies from the first event are also taking part in this year's sixth edition, either under their original names or under the umbrella of a new organization. We have also noticed a constant increase in the number of sessions per event throughout the years, which shows the relevance and importance of Wide Bandgap in particular, and power electronics in general. This is evident from the number of delegates applying from a variety of industries. The event has welcomed visitors from all kinds of international companies over the years, such as Airbus, Audi, BMW, CISCO, Collins, Continental, Daimler, Ford, HUAWAI, Lear, LG, Milwaukee Tool, Siemens, SMA or Tata, to name just a few. The percentage of attendees from academia has always been high, which shows that the audience has just the right mix.

Registration for this year’s virtual event, which takes place from November 29 to December 2, 2022, is now open at bodoswbg.com. You can expect four days of highly technical content and the opportunity to have your questions answered directly by the experts in live Q&As via Zoom. Best of all, you can use your existing account, that you use for any of the Bodo websites, so you don't have to create a new one. We now have over 40 companies who have confirmed their participation and/or sponsorship of the event, and I am pleased to announce that almost all of the slots in the program have been filled. We are intentionally holding a few spots open as we know there is always someone who ‘likes to jump on the train at the last minute’! Please contact myself, or another team member if you are interested in any of the remaining opportunities to showcase your technology at this event – you won’t regret it!

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 our clients in North America. If you speak the language, or just want to have a look, don’t miss our Chinese version at bodospowerchina.com. An archive of my magazine with every single issue is available for free at my website bodospower.com.

My Green Power Tip for the Month:
Think very carefully about which devices you temporarily disconnect from the mains. It is always a good idea to save energy, but for some devices it is not useful and has the opposite effect. Some can even be damaged, such as certain types of TVs and screens!

Best regards
Holger
