Aspencore, one of the major media partners of electronica, is organizing in co-operation with Messe München the Power Electronics Forum as well as the Embedded Systems Forum – running a forum program on all 4 days (Nov 15–18) with presentations about technical and market trends, new products, strategies, applications and other relevant topics.
Wide Band Gap Semiconductors, Renewable Energies, Smart Grid and Energy Storage will be the major topics covered by the Power Electronics Forum at electronica.
Efficiency is a driving force in all industrial sectors, including the consumer one. In electronic systems, efficiency can lead to performance limitations as well as a reduction in service life. Thanks to their savings in size, weight, and cost, as well as higher efficiency, GaN and SiC power devices are making major advances beyond several applications. In the last couple of decades, the worldwide SiC and GaN scenes have been characterized by development and growing industry acceptance. The overall benefit is reduced system sizes across all applica-tions. The hurdles, however, include having improved measurement equipment available and appropriately analyzing the designs. During the forum session we will cover the technical aspects and next challenges of wide bandgap semiconductors.
Meanwhile, other semiconductor devices serve the needs of motor drive and power control. As efficiency standards for these applications improve, cost-effective and energy-efficient control solutions, test and measurement solutions, and transducers/sensors simplify design and provide a high level of integration, as well as enhanced safety features and certified isola-tion capabilities.
The growing need for power quality in distribution systems, together with the large-scale integration of renewable energy sources, has increased the demand for new technologies and devices. Energy storage and power control are two important topics of the forum, and we will analyze those from several markets perspectives. Estimating them at the beginning of a design process can be quite challenging. Our global society will continue to get progressively more dependent on electronics – and by extension, on the electronics industry. Maximizing the efficiency of electrical and electronic systems with energy harvesting techniques and new power semiconductors is an intrinsic value in engineering.

The global reliance on technology to get through the last couple of years has put a sharp focus on the electronics industry, and particularly the embedded systems that underpin every industry sector. Alongside this is global movement towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the path to tackle climate change and achieve net zero. According to the World Economic Forum, digital technologies at scale could enable up to 20% reduction in the three highest emitting sectors: energy, mobility and materials.
The enabler for these digital technologies—in everything from smart energy, smart industry and cities to electric and autonomous vehicles—are the sensors, vision systems, the connected devices, the on-board processing and intelligence, as well as new business models enabling greater access to the technology that will help more people deploy smart, connected and intelligent systems.
The Embedded Forum will hence look at the trends in embedded systems design, from device development to software and tools, plus new opportunities enabled by cloud-based EDA. We’ll also explore designing for safety and mission critical systems. We’ll cover the architectures that will enable more intelligence, from microcontrollers and microprocessors to high-performance computing (HPC), bio-inspired computing and compute-in-memory. And finally, we’ll look at the whole future of connected devices enabling the sensing, thinking and acting, for what many are now calling the AIoT (artificial intelligence of things).
