A Successful Premiere

On March 31, the first Wide Bandgap Expert Talk was held very successfully. It started with participants from the field of GaN and soon warmed up to a lively discussion. Like all the virtual roundtables I've seen over the past few months, the conversation has to develop, but once it started, the questions soon poured in via chat. After a full hour we closed the meeting with a good feeling and opened the SiC-session, also with five participants and Bodo as the moderator. Here too, a 60-minute discussion developed, both about the articles and current trends. Bodo and I would like to thank all of the panel experts once again - we are very pleased with the positive feedback that we received from our readers and with the numerous commitments to participate again.

A Successful Premiere

On March 31, the first Wide Bandgap Expert Talk was held very successfully. It started with participants from the field of GaN and soon warmed up to a lively discussion. Like all the virtual roundtables I've seen over the past few months, the conversation has to develop, but once it started, the questions soon poured in via chat. After a full hour we closed the meeting with a good feeling and opened the SiC-session, also with five participants and Bodo as the moderator. Here too, a 60-minute discussion developed, both about the articles and current trends. Bodo and I would like to thank all of the panel experts once again - we are very pleased with the positive feedback that we received from our readers and with the numerous commitments to participate again.

Our initial idea for this format was to hold these regular rounds with the experts changing and I am pleased to have already received enough commitments for our next edition on June 30. To be honest, the interest in the industry is already so great that a quarterly continuation beyond the turn of the year can be considered assured. For the upcoming episode, we will again publish the articles we will be featuring on our website from the beginning of June to give our readers the opportunity to submit questions.

It is not only the big conferences, such as APEC recently announced, that are changing to virtual formats - so is Bodo’s Power. Our annual December event will now be held virtual for the second time. The feedback we are receiving is that people still don’t want to make travel plans at the moment. Bodo and I totally agree, we too feel that it is still not secure enough with Corona virus and we don’t expect it will be for the rest of the year. So, mark your calendar for “Bodo’s Wide Bandgap Event” on December 1-2, 2021. We will once again bring together experts in SiC, GaN and related topics.

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:
The days are getting longer again. Let as much natural light as possible into your home and office. It's free, healthy in reasonable doses, and it makes you feel happy!
Kind regards
Holger
