The EMV, Europe's leading trade fair for electromagnetic compatibility, achieved an impressive response in Cologne from March 12 - 14, 2024. The trade fair, accompanied by a scientific conference with workshops, featured 111 national and international exhibitors from 20 countries. Key players such as Rohde & Schwarz, Frankonia and EMC Test NRW as well as 21 companies, taking part in the EMV for the first time, were also present.

More than 2,500 trade visitors took the opportunity to find out about the industry's entire range of topics - from filters and filter components to EMC testing and shielding and its latest developments. A lively exchange of specialist knowledge was also high on the agenda in Cologne. Current trends this time around included EMC in electromobility, smart technologies, power electronics and the use of artificial intelligence in EMC.

"The EMV is the leading trade fair for us and has been an indispensable part of our business activities since our foundation. We value the highly specific questions and topics that are raised in conversations with trade visitors. They enable us to develop customized solutions and offer them to our customers accordingly. The platform serves as a bridge between customer inquiries and our sales engineers," confirmed Christine Seel, Managing Director at EMCO Elektronik GmbH, and exhibitor at the EMV for the past 32 years.

Broad range of information and training program at the Conference

Parallel to the trade fair, the EMV Conference offered an extensive program with 49 conference lectures, 24 workshops and poster presentations held for the first time. The event demonstrated the growing importance of EMC in an increasingly networked world. In view of the growing number of potential sources of interference and even more complex systems, it has become clear that awareness of EMC issues is steadily rising.

More than 700 conference bookings illustrated the high level of interest in the event. Participants deepened their specialist knowledge and discussed current issues and research results as well as a wide range of challenges, such as the use of active filters in power electronics, the use of mode swirl chambers in the automotive industry and the trend towards ever-higher frequencies.

"The conference plays a crucial role in the field as it offers a unique platform for networking. This is where all the important contacts come together - not only within national borders, but also beyond. This often leads to in-depth talks on common topics or new developments that experts want to explore together. It is also a good opportunity to pick up on old points of contact and discuss them even further," emphasized Michaela Gruber, research assistant at the University of Stuttgart. Ms. Gruber additionally won one of the Young Engineer Awards for her presentation.

Great response to new poster presentations

This new format was very well received by speakers and visitors alike. The topics included the following:

  • A Study on Power Plane Impedance of PCB and effective utilization for EMC von Naga Maddi, Bosch Global Software Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
  • Exploring Susceptibility of Sensors to IEMI and Countermeasures von Louis Cesbron Lavau, Fraunhofer INT

The simultaneous organization of the trade fair and conference have once again enabled scientists and those working in the field to create synergies between research and industry, establish new partnerships and thus promote and advance technological progress in electromagnetic compatibility.

Trade fair forum as a platform for innovation

The presentations held at the trade fair forum proved to be popular as they allowed visitors to find out about new products or current issues as well as exchange ideas with representatives at the forum.

Outlook for the next EMV events

The next event will take place from 25 - 27.3.2025 in Stuttgart.

For those who would like to deepen their knowledge of EMC for their everyday work are welcome to visit the EMC seminars from 19 - 21.11.2024 in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany. This event offers individual further training opportunities with current practical relevance and new impulses for the working environment.
