Power Electronics Conference
From Materials to Systems - The Latest Innovations
Date: 14–15 November 2017
Time: 14:00–17:00 / 09:45–12:30
Since the turn of the century Power semiconductors have become increasingly important as enabler for state-of-the-art consumer applications, industrial systems and, increasingly so, transportation vehicles and automobiles. Several industries have shifted their development focus gradually towards power semiconductors to provide high efficiency power conversions and variable motor drives or related systems. Exciting new start-ups and spin-offs are crowding the emerging space created by novel power semiconductor (wide band-gap) materials and innovative packaging concepts and working diligently towards its successful introduction.
The excitement in our mature and quite risk-averse industry has recently peaked, when the paradigm of the theoretical Silicon performance limit was shattered by introduction of the CoolMos technology. Even more recently, the very reliable tram and train industry in Japan has started to integrate High-Voltage Silicon Carbide technology and, during the recent Google Little-box challenge a GaN Transistor topology revolutionized the power density of a solar inverter.
Every year the Semicon Power semiconductor conference provides the opportunity to hand selected experts in material, technology, marketing and application to review and present the progress in their related fields to their colleges and interested exhibition visitors. Our call for abstracts is now open for submission.
