Event Review

PCIM Europe / SMTconnect / Sensor+Test

This year Fraunhofer IZM was represented with exhibition booths at PCIM Europe, SMTconnect and Sensor+Test. The three spring trade fairs for the electronics industry were held on site in Nuremberg from 10-12 May 2022, for the first time since 2019. Participants, organizers and exhibitors alike were delighted to come together in person again.

PCIM Europe

PCIM Europe is considered the leading international trade fair for power electronics. Highlights at the IZM booth included a compact power converter for industrial applications with particularly high-power density that was developed in an ECPE Lighthouse project, and a drive converter that uses SiC semiconductors to ensure greater range and more efficiency when driving e-cars.

This year’s theme of the trade fair for electronics manufacturing SMTconnect was "Manufacturing together", and it brought together people and technologies from the fields of development, manufacturing and application of microelectronic assemblies and systems. Fraunhofer IZM collaborated with various machine, technology and process partners to set up a complete production line at the "Future Packaging" joint booth. Participants had the opportunity to take part in line tours and get an overview of trustworthy electronics.

Current trends in sensor integration were presented at Sensor+Test, a leading forum for sensor technology and measurement and testing technology. At a joint booth with other Fraunhofer institutes, Fraunhofer IZM presented its latest research results in sensor packaging, sensor development and sensor networks. The topics included robust sensor technology for monitoring infrastructures and plug & play for wireless sensor connectivity and radar sensor technology. For example, an optofluidic, near-patient diagnostic system for cell-based samples was presented, which can determine different biomarkers for several infectious diseases in less than 15 minutes.
