electronica 2012: Inside tomorrow
electronica takes place in Munich for the 25th time from November 13 – 16. More than 2,500 international exhibitors will present their product and service portfolios to visitors from around the world – from components and systems to electronic applications and services. This year’s international trade fair revolves around smart energy solutions, e-mobility, embedded solutions and power electronics in general. These topics will be reflected both in the exhibition and in the program of conferences and related events.

Forum program & CEO Round Table

The highlight of electronica 2012 will be once again the CEO Round Table on the first day of the trade fair. This year’s CEO Round Table will be dedicated to the various aspects of grid expansion and the contribution of the global electronics industry. Leading international executives will discuss "Semiconductor Solutions for Smart Grid Challenges" at the electronica Forum.  

The range of topics at the four electronica forums is extremely diverse and gives visitors a chance to gather information about current and future issues that pertain to various application sectors in more than 130 practice-oriented presentations that go beyond the exhibition. While the electronica Forum features lectures on topics such as “Medical Electronics” and “Trends in Microsystem Technology”, speakers at the automotive Forum will deal with topics such as “Efficient Dynamics in Mobility” and “Innovative Light Concepts for the Automotive Sector”. The embedded Forum will examine topics such as “Smart Metering”, “Micros & DSPs” and “Embedded Computing”. The PCB Marketplace will focus on “Market Trends for PCBs, Film-type Integrated Circuits and Electronic Assemblies” and “The Component Industry’s Target Markets”.

New: embedded platforms conference 
The first-ever embedded platforms conference is being held on November 14 and 15. Leading manufacturers in the electronics industry such as Atmel, Farnell, Freescale, Fujitsu, Infineon, Texas Instruments, Toshiba and TQ Systems will give participants an overview of the ecosystems of modern embedded platforms. To develop successful electronic products, selecting the right embedded modular system is not the only issue. Another essential aspect is ensuring efficient interaction between the processor platform, the operating system, the drivers and the networking technology and matching it to the specific application in question. electronica deals with this challenge for embedded-system engineers who come here to gather information about selecting the right solutions for their needs.

electronica automotive conference
Driving safety, energy-efficient mobility, in-vehicle Internet access and design-to-cost are the topics at this year’s electronica automotive conference, which traditionally begins one day before the fair. Strategy lectures on “Electrification of the powertrain” and “In-vehicle cloud computing” are on the agenda on November 12. Then on November 13, the conference will focus on the latest developments for technical experts in the automotive industry and OEMs, component manufacturers and software developers who deal extensively with components. For example, one lecture will examine the question: “Standardization - Which standard is the right one?” For the first time ever, a panel discussion on mobility concepts is also planned.

Wireless Congress
The “Wireless Congress: Systems & Applications” takes place on November 14 and 15. Industry specialists will not only examine technical aspects of current and future wireless technologies – especially for use in industrial applications – but will also give participants insights into applications, security aspects, standards and market opportunities. This year’s topics include wireless technologies in vehicles, new Bluetooth applications, power supplies and energy harvesting. Keynotes from IHS iSuppli, Bluetooth SIG and ZigBee Alliance are also on the agenda.

Platform for future professionals
The upcoming generation of specialists and experts is essential for the future of the industry. Together with SEMICA, the VDE and the ZVEI, electronica is organizing Student Day on the last day of the fair for some 300 prospective engineers. Participants can get tips for starting their careers and enjoy a networking lunch with sponsors, and a presentation ceremony for the COSIMA Award is also planned.

Using synergies
The trade fairs hybridica, which features the latest developments and manufacturing techniques for hybrid components, and electrical energy storage (ees), which revolves around the topic of electrical storage solutions, are being held at the same time as electronica, creating useful synergy.
