With many in-person events being postponed or cancelled altogether, it’s easy to feel like you’re missing out on opportunities to learn, teach others, meet new people, and even network. Virtual events make opportunities possible for professionals around the world without travel and extra costs.

That is why KEMET is excited to be a part of PowerUP EXPO 2020, a three-day virtual conference and exhibition focusing on power electronics from June 16–18. Major topics that will be covered each day include wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductors, smart and renewable energies, and motion control. If you’re still on the fence about attending, here are four reasons why you don’t want to miss it:

1. PowerUp EXPO is Open 24 Hours Everyday

That’s right, this virtual conference has no closing time. Attendees will have 24-hour access to the conference to view live presentations and chat with exhibitors. Live presentations and panels will occur each day from 14:30 to 17:30 CEST / 8:30 a.m. to 11: 30 a.m. EDT and you can access the virtual fair grounds and exhibition hall anytime.

2. KEMET is Presenting Live!

KEMET Field Application Engineer Samuel Accardo will be presenting live on June 16 at 17:10 CEST 11:10 a.m. EDT on “Design and Considerations for MLCCs in High Voltage Wide Bandgap Resonant Converters.” He will cover many topics, including the requirements for capacitors in WBG inverter subsystems, KEMET’s Class I MLCC suitability and capability for applications in WBG inverter subsystems, KEMET’s KC-LINK capacitor, and KEMET’s new leadless stack packaging technology called KONNEKT.

In addition, we’ll be hosting a live Expert Chat covering the topics above on Wednesday, June 17 at 16:00 – 18:00 CEST / 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EDT. Check out the schedule and be sure to add it to your calendar.

3. Meet KEMET’s Product Experts at Our Virtual Booth

During the conference, you can stop by our virtual booth to look at our latest and greatest offerings, plus get a chance to speak with our Field Application Engineers. They’ll be available to chat and answer questions every day of the conference from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. EDT.
