Leading companies will show their latest innovations at the world’s most important trade fair for electronic components, systems and applications. The main topics at electronica 2010 will be automotive, displays, embedded systems, medical electronics, photovoltaics and renewable energies.   Forum programs and CEO Round Table Featuring a total of five forums, electronica 2010 will offer its visitors and exhibitors an extensive supporting program and in-depth information on the latest industry topics.   The focal points of the application-oriented forums such as the automotive Forum, the embedded Forum and the e-Signage Forum will be technical talks and discussions. The electronica and ZVEI Forum will concentrate on interdisciplinary technology topics and other applications such as MEMS, medical electronics, wireless, organic electronics, photovoltaics and renewable energies.   The highlight of electronica 2010 will be the CEO Round Table on the first day of the trade fair. CEOs from international semiconductor companies will discuss current questions and challenges in the industry. Peter Bauer, President & CEO of Infineon Technologies, Rich Beyer, CEO & Chairman of the Board of Freescale Semiconductor, Carlo Bozotti, President & CEO of ST Microelectronics and Rick Clemmer, President & CEO of NXP Semiconductors will give talks on the following topic: “What lessons have we learnt from the crisis?” The session will be chaired by Kilian Reichert.   Promoting future professionals – What job do I want to do? The world’s leading trade fair is committed to the promotion of future professionals in the electronics industry and will stage the Career Information Day for high-school seniors on the last day of electronica 2010 as part of the ZVEI “Superstudium.de” Initiative. Around 200 students will be able to obtain information during this event about careers prospects in the electronics industry. Presentations on training courses, career opportunities and interesting experiments, which the students can personally conduct, will provide a good insight into this exciting occupational field. The Career Information Day is being supported by Digi-Key Corporation, the official partner of the ZVEI “Superstudium.de” Initiative, and numerous exhibitors who will welcome the student groups on their stand.   Automotive – Solutions for a mobile future One of the most important key topics at electronica 2010 will be automobile electronics. Thanks to the 3-pillar concept - electronica automotive conference, automotive Forum and an exhibition in the Automotive section – a worldwide unique event will be created for automobile electronics.   The electronica automotive conference is primarily aimed at managers in the automobile, automotive component supply and electronics industries. Experts from the world’s leading companies in the automobile industry such as Daimler, Volkswagen and Infineon Technologies will exchange, for example, their know-how on the topic of “e-mobility” during this event. The agenda of the electronica Automotive Forum in Hall A6 will also include podium discussions on the topics of electro-mobility, safety and communication.

  Power supply systems in the light of energy efficiency The entire Hall B2 will be occupied by more than 260 exhibitors covering the topic of power supply. International market leaders will present their latest products and system solutions for an effective and energy-saving power supply. Important stimuli are expected here: In the area of cable-free energy transmission RRC power solution GmbH will demonstrate a solution for the non-contact power supply of mobile devices; in the military applications section Powerstax will present its latest product, i.e. the UP Converter TSV1000, which converts energy from a vehicle’s alternator or battery and renders it usable for military jamming systems.     Innovations in medical electronics Another topic area at this year’s electronica will be medical electronics for which innovative components will be presented. The world innovations will include, for example, solutions for prostheses which simulate the natural movement of the leg: a new intelligent control system for active prostheses will be exhibited at electronica 2010. The Texan semiconductor manufacturer Freescale has co-developed a titanium leg prosthesis which, together with a robot, simulates the functionality of the real lower leg. The robot attached to the artificial lower leg contains five motors and twelve sensors. The sensors measure torque, force and speed, and induce movement via the motors.. Companies such as Freescale and Heimann Sensor will also present components for the latest portable medical devices such as blood glucose meters, pulse monitors, implantable blood pressure sensors and remote monitoring and control systems for heart pacemakers.   You can find all the information on electronica 2010 in the Internet at www.electronica.de.
