Earlier this year, it was confirmed that due to the COVID-19 situation, PCIM Europe would be unable to take place as planned, and would be replaced by a digital alternative. 

PCIM Europe has now confirmed that ‘The PCIM Europe Digital Days’ will be taking place as a virtual event from 7th-8th July 2020. The event will cover the latest innovations and developments in the field of power electronics, with a total of more than 250 video-on-demand presentations and interactive live discussions available free of charge.

Over the two days, the virtual event will offer suppliers and users the opportunity to expand their knowledge and professional network, with an online conference program, featuring presentations from international experts from industry and academia, covering key development trends in power electronics.

Taking part in the ‘PCIM Europe Digital Days’ is free of charge for users and companies can participate in the form of a digital exhibitor profile, through sponsoring or by providing a presentation on-demand. More than 50 companies have already confirmed their participation, including Infineon, Rohm Semiconductor, Mitsubishi Electric, Varta, and Wolfspeed.

The agenda features three main keynotes including Robert Plikat, Head of Subdepartment Power Electronics at Volkswagen in Germany, who will present ‘Trends in Automotive Power Electronics Discussed at Audi’s first full Electric Drive Train’; as well as Ahmed Elasser from the GE Global Research Center in the USA who will present ‘Battery Energy Storage Systems: Past, Present, and Future’, and “Innovative Data Center Power Solutions” by Roland Hümpfner from Huawei Technologies in Germany.

The Industry forum will cover research and development topics such as ‘EV/HEV Cost vs. Performance Trade off: A Battle on Multiple Fronts for Power Electronics’, whilst the virtual E-Mobility forum offers exclusive insights into the latest product innovations in the field of power electronics for electric mobility.

With the virtual event devised to be interactive, users have the opportunity to ask questions, take part in voting, or join live discussions via video chat. Participants will also be able to contact each other via the matchmaking function of the Talque digital event tool. This is possible both for participants with each other and with speakers and representatives of participating companies.

It’s great to see that PCIM Europe will be able to go ahead in the best way possible for 2020. With EETech’s ‘Industry Tech Days’ also due to go ahead in September as a potential replacement to PCIM, virtual events are able to offer attendees the opportunity to learn the latest in the developments of the industry and still network with fellow professionals.

We look forward to hearing feedback from users, on what we are sure will be a successful event for 2020.
