With the introduction of wide-bandgap (WBG) devices, such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN), power electronics technologies have undergone major developments and transformations. These materials feature characteristics that enable them to be ideal for applications that operate at high voltages and high switching frequencies.
To fully exploit the potential offered by wide-bandgap semiconductors, designers must understand the challenges of these materials. Power electronics design will continue to focus on reducing the size and complexity of devices while increasing their functionality. These designs will increasingly incorporate the following:
- Wide Bandgap Semiconductors (GaN and SiC)
- Digital Control
- Optimize energy management
- Module and Systems
About the Event – PowerUP Expo 2023
After the success of PowerUp Expo 2022, the industry will observe this year’s edition of PowerUP Expo in June end of 2023. It is a free three-day virtual conference and exhibition focusing on power electronics. With an exhibition area, live stage, and messaging center, the PowerUP Expo 2023 functions similarly to a live exhibition and conference.
This technical conference will include a number of sessions, including keynotes, panel discussions, technical presentations, and tutorials on a variety of subject matters, including significant technical trends, market demands, and new application areas.
- June 27: Tutorials/Lectures, Panel Discussion & Conference Preview
- June 28: Wide Bandgap Semiconductors and Power Applications
- June 29: Power Conversion and Power Management Design Trends in low and high power
