Welcome to PCIM Asia!
Like PCIM Europe, which takes place annually in Nuremberg in Germany, the PCIM (short for Power Conversion, Intelligent Motion) event in China is an international meeting ground for specialists in power electronics and its applications in drive technologies and power quality.
The event offers a chance to see the latest developments in power electronics components and systems. The strong link between conference and exhibition guarantees the high quality of the show. This unique combination fosters the fast and easy exchange between industry and science, for which PCIM Asia is famous.
This is where experts from industry and academia meet, where new trends and developments are presented to the public for the very first time. In this way, the event mirrors the entire value chain - from components, drives control and packaging to the final intelligent system.
● PCIM Asia is an international exhibition and conference focusing on power electronic device industry chain in Asia. It is the first choice platform for domestic and foreign well-known device manufacturers to release new products and latest technologies. A number of enterprises in the field of electronic materials, inductive components and passive component products will debut in PCIM Asia for the first time.
● PCIM Asia Conference is highly praised for its in-depth discussion of the latest industrial scientific research achievements with the combination of academics and industries.
● Forum Introduction
- Industry Forum
1. Electrical transportation technology in the Industry 4.0 era
Speakers from well-known universities and research institutions such as Tsinghua University, Tongji University, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Tongji-CRRC Joint Research Center for Innovation, Shanghai ABB Engineering, Shanghai University will conduct a thorough analysis of China's shift towards electrical transportation technology. The event will unveil the latest developments in the field and conduct interactive discussions on topics such as domestic railways, electric vehicles, intelligent motion control, marine engineering and electric UAVs.
2. New energy development under the carbon peak and carbon neutrality goals
This forum will explore the prospects and key technologies around new energy development and use under China’s “dual carbon” goals. New energy power generation technologies will be explored such as wind, solar, hydrogen and marine energy, electricity conversion, energy storage and control technologies.
Prominent industry experts, academics and manufacturing professionals will take part from organisations and institutions including Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai Lingang Power Electronics Research Institute, Sungrow, Hopewind, Shanghai Electric, SHPT and more.
- Exhibitor Forum
1. Power Electronics Application Forum
In this forum sponsored by Indium, Nexperia and WeEn, over 30 exhibitors will analyse the latest power electronics application market trends, showcase new product releases, discuss industry best practices, conduct product demonstrations and engage in business matchmaking.
2. The 3rd Generation Semiconductor Forum
This event will focus on the Wide Bandgap Devices market, supply chain and technologies including SiC and GaN power devices.
● Thematic areas
-The 3rd Generation Semiconductor Zone
The tendency of development in regard to future power electronics systems is characterised by:
- Increase of system power density
- Improvement of electrical efficiency
- Toughness and reliability of components and systems
- Higher flexibility and cost minimization of systems by using “digital power electronics”
Impressions of the PCIM Asia 2023
“This is my second time attending PCIM Asia, and I feel like the fair has grown since, and is growing towards the size of PCIM Europe. The response has been really good, and the whole morning our booth was full. Just like in Europe, people are enjoying being back and interacting with their suppliers and customers. For me PCIM is the number one show for power electronics and we will very likely come back for the next edition of PCIM Asia.”
“PCIM is one of the most important power electronics shows in the world, we participate every year at PCIM Europe but this is our first time attending PCIM Asia. So far on day one we’ve had a very positive response with a lot of visitors at our booth and we’ve had meaningful discussions with potential clients. Our target customers are engineers in the industrial and automotive sectors, and we found many people from these two sectors showing interest in our booth. Next year we will consider bringing even more solutions to PCIM Asia 2024.”
“This is our second time exhibiting at PCIM Asia and our booth is significantly larger in comparison with the previous edition. We have noticed that this year’s show has seen an increase in foreign visitors, as well as teams of professional clients. Our company specialises in wide bandgap semiconductors and so PCIM Asia has given us the platform for showcasing our technology, while also engaging with clients and suppliers in the power electronics industry.”
“All the topics we are addressing at the conference are key trends in power electronics, especially here in China, where energy-related and mobility topics are the future. We are just at the beginning of the conference, and you can already see the discussions firing up, with many experts attending and asking the right questions, so I’m really happy with this edition so far.”
“So far the conference looks great, people are very engaged, and I could see all the seats were taken with lots of people waiting and standing during the presentation. In my presentation I talked about wide bandgap materials and in particular GaN, and what can make GaN successful in the field, by addressing the remaining issues of fragility and ease of use. I see potential for GaN everywhere, China has some very good companies and I can see it growing, so there is a lot of potential for this material here.”
“My presentation was on wide bandgap semiconductor packaging and integration. This is my first time at PCIM Asia, and I’ve been able to walk around the fair and it’s amazing to see all the new companies as well the traditional brands, so it’s really exciting to see the growth of power electronics. I think PCIM provides a space where all of us from both industry and academia can come together which is essential, especially in this revolutionary time for power electronics.”
“Our company specialises in power semiconductors and this is our first time visiting the fair. We are particularly interested in learning about the latest market trends and technologies within this industry. The exhibitors we spoke to provided us with invaluable market insights as well as up-to-date technical information. We also attended a few seminars and I really appreciate the fact that the speakers are industry leaders and experts in their fields, and so we have greatly benefited from our visit today.”
