    What happened to the chip supply? – a series of unfortunate events
    Dennis Dahlgren - Editor In Chief - Evertiq
    In this walk down the very resent memory lane, we will take a look at several events that caused ripple effects across the supply chain and ultimately landing us where we currently are. The pandemic have indeed sent massive ripples through supply chains around the globe – but it was never the start of the semiconductor crisis, the semiconductor supply chain was on shaky legs long before COVID-19 shut down entire countries and trade. Sit down and have a listen as we talk about the effects of trade wars, shortage of production capacity, lack of raw materials, fires, droughts and of course the pandemic as well as the war in Ukraine.

    Embedded low power SOCs and SOMs for intelligent systems.
    Patrik Björklund - Director of sales - Tritech Solutions
    The presentation will give an overview of the currently available low processors and module standards for the embedded market, in the segment up to max. 15W TDP. A wide range of embedded applications demand higher CPU performance, advanced graphics capabilities, faster I/O and neural network accelerators for vision and machine learning workloads, while having power and thermal constraints. We will look at ARM versus x86 solutions, edge inference accelerators, to buy or make and how product lifecycles can be managed.

    How do you manage your projects with demands on higher quality and less cost without losing track on the process?
    John Ludvigsen - Technical Sales Engineer Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) - InnoFour
    Embedded software is in virtually all the products we come in contact with every day. For example, there are 100+ million lines of code in automotive, 24% of Medical device recalls are due to software issues, and there's 15.4% growth in the software driven "Smart Appliance" market. As a result the use of embedded software is quickly infringing on hardware’s dominance in the product development process. However in many environments software development is a siloed activity that leads to disconnects between product requirements and implementation that leads to product recalls or product failures. In legacy software development environments, many different point solutions are used to manage the application lifecycle. As a result, development artifacts are scattered, slowing down collaboration, hindering transparency, undermining integrity and making it difficult to drive innovation. This presentation of Polarion Application Lifecycle Management will cover the challenges in today’s embedded software development and how Polarion can help organizations with a unified solution that divers project transparency through real-time aggregated management information. Polarion enables everyone to be aligned around what is being built and why, to drive advancement while protecting integrity and compliance. Polarion helps teams respond faster and with better quality to new business opportunities and customer demands. The presentation will also show how it’s possible to work with different stakeholders like clients and managers and with those that are in the project so that everybody has a real-time view of the status of the project.

    Integral Laser Technology Solutions to enhance Performance of PCB Depaneling Processes
    Javier Gonzalez - Sales Manager - InnoLas Solutions GmbH
    Lasers are becoming the most preferred PCB depaneling method as they are offering inherent advantages such as narrow kerf widths as well as virtually no dust, no mechanical stress, fast set-up changes and many degrees of flexibility. Laser technology solutions to enhance laser depaneling performance will be presented. This will cover advanced laser beam guidance technologies to improve cutting quality and throughput, integrated automation and inspection modular solutions to increase yield and connectivity options for laser systems in advanced manufacturing environments.

    What are the new trends in displays and HMI solutions?
    Daniel Aspeskär - Business Development Manager - Martinsson Elektronik
    As the interface between human and machine, the display is absolute instrumental in how the user experiences your product. In this lecture you get an insight into what is expected of a modern, embedded industrial display. Tips on how to create intuitive, user friendly solutions, WOW-effect and also what future HMI can offer.

    Component market and anti counterfeit
    Johan Dahl - Senior Director, Sales - EMEA - A2 Global Electronics
    Johan Dahl will give a general global component industry market overview. He will also talk specifically of anti counterfeit.

    Automotive Radar Research at ECH
    Emil Nilsson - Researcher at Halmstad University - Electronics Centre in Halmstad (ECH)
    Radar is becoming a standard equipment in cars, supporting for example cruise control and parking assist. Similarly, vehicle-to-vehicle communication (V2V) will become more widely used, to provide fast dissemination of safety-related information. Automotive radar and communication both face challenges when extending their use since interference between signals leads to reduced performance and eventually sensing failures. The research made on this topic at ECH in Halmstad will be presented.

    DFX Guidelines, IPC-2231 - an introduction and practical example
    Marcus Ek - Head of Engineering & Development - Norautron AB
    As a contract manufacturer, you have a significant role to play in products with different requirements are really made. It exists through this also a lot of experience and knowledge to gain from the manufacturers, which can help product developers arrive at an end product in a safe and fast way. Listen as Marcus Ek shares his experiences together during many years of work in the electronics industry with a focus on support product development and design of products with a focus on high customer requirements and a high degree of producibility. He also gives an introduction to the relatively new IPC-2231 "DFX Guidelines" which focuses on supporting electronics developers for better designs. Marcus Ek is a technical manager at Norautron AB with experience of electronics manufacturing and business development since 1990 when he started as a component technician at Teli Företagssystem in Vänersborg.

    The Future of Value Chain Management From Predictive Sourcing to First-Time-Right
    Philipp Köenig - Luminovo GmbH
    What might a future look like in practical terms, in which the manufacturability of PCBs is already optimized during the development process, the part selection is carried out in a forward-looking manner withregard to market developments, or finding suitable supply sources takes place at the push of a button? The developments of the last few years during the pandemic have left no company untouched and have confronted entire supply chains with major challenges. In order to still cope with this new dimension of market dynamics, manual and alignment-intensive processes have to be replaced by smart and collaborative next-generation software solutions. Let's explore this together during this presentation!

    Beyond the datasheet, what they never tell you about inductors
    Dr. Georg Hetzendorf - Business Development Executive - CoilCraft
    The presentation shows with examples and practical hints how to get the most out of power inductors commonly used in many DC-DC converters. Many new applications ask for high voltage compliance of inductors which, up to now, was not specified by inductor manufacturers. By applying best practice when designing DC-DC converters, information from the datasheet can be used to minimize efforts for EMI compliance. Tools available on the web (for free) provide useful information to predict size versus performance leverage designers must take when planning the next generation DC-DC converter.
