Three Days of Free Tech Tutorials

Nov. 24, 2020
Don't let the pandemic slow down your career. Enjoy three days of free online technical tutorials and briefings on the latest electronic components, December 1-3.

Although the pandemic put the live component of the Electronica Exhibition in Munich on hold for 2020, it wasn't able to stifle the lively information exchange and educational opportunities that happened at the virtual event, held November 9-12. Wurth Electronics, one of the many vendors who had a virtual exhibit at Electronica, is also offering a follow-on program of technical education at “WE meet @ digital days 2020,” running from Dec. 1-3.

The classes in Wurth's program appear to be a healthy mix of very technical drill-downs into specific design and engineering issues and sessions devoted to showcasing the latest electronic components for various applications.

Here’s a small sampling of the programming from each of the three days:

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

8 AM: Board Level Shielding and Handling Common-Mode Noise in new high frequency technologies

10 AM: RF connectors: How to choose the suitable product based on frequency, losses, handling and costs

11:30 AM: Automotive: Introduction of new products

Wednesday, December 2, 2020

9 AM: ZIF/LIF Interconnection – mechanical and electrical characteristics in depth

11:30 AM: Wireless Connectivity & Sensors: Introduction of new products

3 PM: Capacitors – Wish it was so simple. Ideal vs. real and its impact on signal integrity, noise and EMI performance

Thursday, December 3, 2020

8 AM: Antenna matching. Small overview of the service and portfolio

2 PM: Shielding Options and solutions. What best fits your design

5 PM: EMC- interference search and measures

Lee Goldberg | Contributing Editor

Lee Goldberg is a self-identified “Recovering Engineer,” Maker/Hacker, Green-Tech Maven, Aviator, Gadfly, and Geek Dad. He spent the first 18 years of his career helping design microprocessors, embedded systems, renewable energy applications, and the occasional interplanetary spacecraft. After trading his ‘scope and soldering iron for a keyboard and a second career as a tech journalist, he’s spent the next two decades at several print and online engineering publications.

Lee’s current focus is power electronics, especially the technologies involved with energy efficiency, energy management, and renewable energy. This dovetails with his coverage of sustainable technologies and various environmental and social issues within the engineering community that he began in 1996. Lee also covers 3D printers, open-source hardware, and other Maker/Hacker technologies.

Lee holds a BSEE in Electrical Engineering from Thomas Edison College, and participated in a colloquium on technology, society, and the environment at Goddard College’s Institute for Social Ecology. His book, “Green Electronics/Green Bottom Line - A Commonsense Guide To Environmentally Responsible Engineering and Management,” was published by Newnes Press.

Lee, his wife Catherine, and his daughter Anwyn currently reside in the outskirts of Princeton N.J., where they masquerade as a typical suburban family.
