Würth Elektronik organized the "WE meet @ digital days 2020" from December 1st to 3rd. A total of 30 digital live presentations took place, hosted by Würth Elektronik experts for electronic & electromechanical components. 
The hosts shared insights into current challenges and trends in electronics design as well as information on new solutions and components. Over 2,300 participants from almost all regions of the world including customers, interested parties and developers from a wide range of industries attended the virtual conference. 

Highlights

Special attention from participants fell on the presentation from the following divisions: Passive & Electromechanical Components, Power Modules & Optoelectronics, Automotive, Frequency Products as well as Wireless Connectivity & Sensors. Amongst the top favourite topics were the presentations on "How cable and PCB ferrites can help to avoid EMC problems", "EMC filters - from component to design" and "Board level shielding and the treatment of common mode interference in new high frequency technologies".

The event made successful use of digital communication tools: presentations were supplemented with a live chat function and e-mail to receive and answer specific questions. The overall organisation and enthusiasm with which speakers spoke about their respective fields was particularly praised.

Impressions and reach

Thomas Schrott, CEO of the Würth Elektronik eiSos Group, is impressed by the event: "These times bring many challenges - the loss of personal contacts at trade fairs is one of them. The virtual conference is a way to communicate innovations and thus open up new design possibilities for developers".

"Consulting and design-in support are part of our service. The technical presentations showed how great the interest is in the electronics market", says Alexander Gerfer, CTO at the Würth Elektronik eiSos Group.
