EETE NOVEMBER 2012

electronica 2012 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 portfo- lios 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 The range of topics at the electronica forums - automotive Forum, embed- ded Forum, electronica Forum, exhibitor Forum and PCB & Components Market Place - is extremely diverse and gives visitors a chance to gather information about current and future issues that per- tain 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 Dynam- ics in Mobility” and “Innovative Light Concepts for the Automotive Sector”. The embedded Forum will examine top- ics such as “Smart Metering”, “Micros & DSPs” and “Embedded Computing”. The PCB Marketplace features an extremely diverse lecture program at the forum and THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC significance of the electronics networking opportunities, and it invites visitors to participate in industry is underscored yet again when the industry meets at an intense exchange of information on the topic of PCBs, other electronica every two years. In mid-November, Munich will once circuit carriers and EMS.
