The main aim to visit such events as an engineer for me is to learn what is going on, have a big picture in mind, attend technical lectures and most important of all lay my hands on sample/free development boards, kits and parts. I was surprised by the giveaways at the event. Some companies were rather generous with it.
Some technical lectures attended at PCIM
New evaluation kits collection added to my Workbench
ST Microelectronics Boards
MEMS Sensors from ST Microelectronics
ROHM High Voltage Board
Other cool stuff
The Final collection
Some reading material I picked up. Thanks to American companies lot of it was in English. I prefer to read in English rather than in German (although I do work in German ) as I learn new technical terms which I can match with the device data-sheets.
Some fun cards for my work place
To sum it all up; quite a successful trip to PCIM 2018. Many eye opening instances and interesting technical chats.
