electronica, the world’s main commerce honest and convention for electronics, will happen in 14 halls on the Munich exhibition grounds from November 15 to 18, 2022. This can be a highly-anticipated return for a present that guarantees to reengage a number of vital sectors in growth and manufacturing, after 4 years of absence. This 12 months’s highlights within the electronica Convention will take care of Automotive, Embedded Platforms, Sensors, and Wi-fi Techniques and Purposes.
electronica has been held in Munich, Germany since 1964 and is the trade’s main tradeshow for the newest know-how and merchandise associated to digital elements. The tradeshow has taken place each different 12 months, at all times within the month of November, alternating with productronica since 1975, a spin-off present devoted solely to electronics manufacturing and manufacturing gear.
When the worldwide pandemic pressured the entire world to cancel all massive public gatherings in 2020, lots of the main tradeshows had been pressured to postponed their deliberate schedules inflicting main disruption to many key industries. Within the case of electronica Munich, which solely takes place each two years, the affect was even stronger because the final pre-pandemic version had taken place in 2018, and the pandemic pressured the cancellation of the 2020 present. 4 years later, electronica 2022 will lastly return to the Messe München – in its established time of the 12 months – November 15 to 18.
After all, the primary focus for lots of the exhibitors and guests – and the Munich present is actually large – shall be to attempt to discover some reassurance concerning the continued provide chain uncertainties, which have brought about a ripple impact in a number of industries and have been centered within the semiconductor and electronics elements industries. In 2022, the worldwide electronics trade may even get collectively on the Munich exhibition grounds below the motto “Driving sustainable progress,” reinforcing the position that electronics performs in paving the way in which for sustainable applied sciences.
electronica 2022 is a co-located occasion with SEMICON Europa, which can take up a further corridor. “The exhibitors, high resolution makers and thought leaders wish to talk about improvements and tendencies in individual once more finally and so they’re already looking forward to the autumn with confidence,” says Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy CEO of Messe München. “For them, electronica is the world’s most essential trade get-together and the one one this 12 months that seamlessly covers the whole spectrum of electronics.” To make sure a safe go to to the commerce honest, the organizers are counting on an in depth security and hygiene idea which has already been confirmed throughout the earlier productronica, in fall 2021.
All of the trade’s main distributors and producers shall be represented at electronica 2022, together with Arrow, Avnet, Bosch, Harting, Infineon, NXP Semiconductor, Phoenix Contact, Rohde & Schwarz, Samsung, Schweizer Digital, STMicroelectronics, TDK Electronics and Würth.
“The electronics and digital trade is steadily changing into increasingly related as the 2 megatrends of electrification and digitalization are straight linked to our trade,” explains Michael Dehnert, Managing Director of the ZVEI affiliation, and Head of Digital Elements and Techniques. Accordingly, the enterprise local weather within the German electronics and digital trade can be enhancing additional, regardless of a seamless scarcity of fabric. In 2021, the trade registered income of €200 billion, a rise of 9.8 p.c over the earlier 12 months. These figures are significantly outstanding as a result of the previous 12 months was additionally influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
electronica has historically been additionally a platform for top-class conferences. This 12 months issues shall be kicked off by the electronica Automotive Convention on November 14, which can take care of the transition of vehicles towards changing into clever linked units. On November 16, the electronica Embedded Platforms Convention, which may even final sooner or later, will talk about the challenges and options for the embedded programs of the long run: In round 35 shows on three parallel tracks, consultants will report on key matters similar to energy electronics and provide, AI and sensors, and communication and software program. Lastly, Wi-fi Congress 2022: Techniques & Purposes, organized by WEKA, would be the assembly level for the worldwide wi-fi group from November 16 to 17. The occasion will think about the newest developments and the sensible software of wi-fi know-how.
Deal with Sensors
Sensors are the important thing know-how utilized by sensible programs in a linked world. Because the main knowledge provider, they produce the uncooked materials utilized in digitalization programs all through all the worth chain in nearly all industrial segments. Main actors within the extremely progressive progress trade will discover present tendencies and applied sciences from November 15 to 18 as a part of electronica 2022. These discussions shall be held partially on the IIoT & Cyber Safety Discussion board and the electronica Embedded Platforms Convention that’s scheduled for November 16, 2022.
The expectations being positioned on this progress sector stay excessive. Analysts at Market Watch anticipate the worldwide sensor market to double in coming years, leaping from $80 billion in 2021 to $161 billion in 2030. The members of the Affiliation for Sensors and Measurement reported that revenues grew by 20 p.c in 2021 12 months on 12 months. One distinctive facet of this trade is its excessive stage of innovation depth. About 11 p.c of revenues circulation into analysis and growth — the best stage in Germany.
The Automotive Trade
The megatrends of autonomous driving, connectivity, electrification and shared mobility demand a dramatic transformation of the automotive trade. On the identical time, digitalization opens up important potential for returns alongside all the worth chain. electronica 2022 will make clear crucial tendencies and challenges on this quickly altering surroundings, be it on the exhibition stands or within the supporting program within the boards and electronica Automotive Convention.
In lots of industrialized nations, the automotive trade is among the most essential sectors of the economic system. At its highest level in 2017, 97.3 million autos rolled off the manufacturing traces around the globe. Because of the pandemic, this quantity dropped to considerably under 60 million by 2020. The truth that many vehicle producers are however bringing in report earnings for the time being belies the precise scenario. That’s as a result of the pandemic, supply bottlenecks, inflation, the battle in Ukraine and tightening local weather targets are hitting the automotive trade in essentially the most disruptive interval in its historical past. The catalysts for this disruption are the electrification of the powertrain, the rise of autonomous driving capabilities, various mobility ideas, and the automation and networking of producing.
The world’s main producers of automotive chips, Bosch, Infineon, NXP, Renesas, Samsung, STMicroelectronics and Texas Devices, shall be represented at electronica 2022. NXP, for instance, will current its S32Z and S32E processors, an enlargement of its S32 automotive platform for real-time processing of area and zone controlling, safety processing and car electrification. Infineon’s multi-core SoCs from its Tc4x household may even cowl a broad spectrum of automotive situations, from electrical mobility, ADAS and linked vehicles to the implementation of AI. The latter is getting used more and more usually in community monitoring (intrusion detection and prevention system), sensor fusion, battery administration and predictive management.
These multi-core SoCs already deal with future zonal E/E car architectures, like these being developed by Bosch and NXP. At a cross-domain stage, the rising complexity of software program capabilities and the rising quantity of information must be tackled with few high-performance car computer systems and zone management models. With the suitable cloud connectivity, every kind of capabilities, similar to vehicle-specific app shops, personalization, superior driver help programs (ADAS) or complete infotainment choices, might be carried out and later booked by way of over-the-air (OTA) updates.
