Over 2,700 international attendees gathered information on product innovations and the latest research results in company profiles, live webinars, conference presentations and an extensive forum program.
Werner Dorbath, Head of International Marketing Communication, Semikron International GmbH confirmed: “PCIM Europe is, and will always be, the main event in the power electronics industry’s calendar – and this is no less true for the digital format. We made new contacts, engaged in discussions with customers, showcased our latest products and solutions, and saw which topics and trends are driving the industry today. Where else would you get all this and more in such a compact format?”

Among the highlights of the program were the keynotes on "Next Generation of Power Electronics Module Packaging", Hannes Stahr, AT&S, Austria and the keynote "HVDC Grid Challenges Locks and Opportunities", Seddik Bacha, SuperGrid Institute, France, which were broadcast live this year. A special crowd puller with over 400 listeners was the keynote "Next-Generation SiC/GaN Three-Phase Variable-Speed Drive Inverter Concepts" by Johann Walter Kolar, ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
