NEW YORK, June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Messe Muenchen International (MMI,
Munich Trade Fairs International), organizer of electronica 2006, today
announced electronica's 2006 theme and final program. The tradeshow and
conference will be held at the New Munich Trade Fair Center from November
14-17. electronica 2006 will occupy a total of 14 exhibition halls, where
more than 3,000 exhibitors will demonstrate their products and services.
MMI expects over 75,000 visitors.
electronica 2006's focus will be on key applications in automotive
electronics, wireless technology and the all-new MicroNanoWorld Hall where
the focus will be nanotechnology. For the third time, Embedded Systems
joins electronica as both an exhibition and a full-program conference.
According to Klaus Dittrich, Managing Director of Messe Muenchen
International, "What has always set electronica apart from other tradeshows
is the scale and scope of the exhibits. I believe electronica is the only
electronics tradeshow to genuinely offer the visitor the very latest
developments in every sector of the industry. At no other tradeshow can
visitors see such a concentration of semiconductor manufacturers, power
supply companies and interconnection specialists, not to mention displays
manufacturers, test and measurement companies and the leading suppliers in
every other sector. In addition to this, we have special areas devoted to
emerging technologies and key applications."
Key Application Areas
electronica 2006 will have key application areas in automotive
innovation, wireless communications, embedded systems and micro- or
nanotechnology. These specialist areas will combine exhibits alongside a
platform for speaker presentations to provide visitors with a clear insight
into the latest developments in their chosen area of interest.
In addition to the Automotive Technology exhibition within electronica,
the electronica automotive conference, held on November 13 to 15, will be
co-located at the International Congress Center Munich ICM. Car
manufacturers, their suppliers and component manufacturers from
international companies will present the latest developments in automotive
electronics as well as their visions.
In conjunction with the Wireless Communications User Forum (hall A4) at
electronica, The Wireless Conference will be held November 15 and 16. It
will focus on all technical aspects of current and future wireless
technologies -- primarily for industrial use -- and will also offer an
insight into today's applications, security questions, certification and
approval problems, test & measurement, standards and market opportunities.
The Embedded Systems exhibition has been expanded for this year's
electronica. Exhibitors will be placing particular emphasis on the
presentation of their versatile software solutions in hall A6. Other
exhibitors will be covering risk management, quality, reusability of
hardware/software IP, and outsourcing strategies in the development
process. The Embedded Systems exhibition will be held in the same hall as
the Automotive Application Area -- one of the industry's largest users of
In addition to the Embedded Systems exhibition, the Embedded Conference
Munich, will be held on November 14 and 15 in the adjacent conference
center, and will offer a program aimed directly at embedded developers. The
main topics are embedded software engineering, embedded test and
verification, small embedded systems (8 and 16 bit) and complex embedded
MicroNanoWorld in hall A2, an area for micro- or nanotechnology is new
for electronica 2006. New micro- and nanotechnologies will be presented
among other applications from the areas of MEMS sensors, RF-MEMS/wireless,
optical MEMS, bio MEMS, NMEMS, packaging for MEMS and Microsystems. Sensor
technology and servo-technology and drive elements which are closely linked
to microtechnology will also be located in this hall.
The electronica 2006 Trade Show Sponsors the "System on Chip Design
Award for Industrial & Automotive Applications"
To recognize the greatest achievement in system-on-chip design in the
European electronics industry, electronica will be awarding the "System on
Chip Design Award for Industrial & Automotive Applications" on November 15,
2006. The award, which underscores the trade show's focus on electronics
applications, will be presented within the framework of the ELEKTRA 06
European Industry Awards. Entries for the award will be accepted until June
23, 2006. The presentation ceremony will be held in the Arabella Sheraton
Grand Hotel in Munich, Germany.
