What will be the most important driver for the power electronics industry in the next few years: Architectures? Topologies? Materials? Applications? This is a hotly debated question that has no clear answers – but representatives from six companies are going to try to clarify the issue, and hopefully get a rousing discussion going at the same time. Alex Lidow from Efficient Power Conversion; Chris Young from Intersil/Zilker; Mark Buccini from Texas Instruments; Arnold Alderman from Anagenesis; Jim MacDonald from National Semiconductor; and Bob White from Embedded Power Labs will present their views in a Roundtable discussion at Darnell’s Power Forum ’10. One of the strengths of the panel is that the individuals and companies represented have been in the industry for a long time and have seen power supply trends come and go. They have experienced many of the changes first-hand and will evaluate the current power supply landscape in their own inimitable styles.
Other sessions at DPF ’10 will address:
• Enabling the Smart Grid
• Applications of Digital Power
• Implementing Energy Harvesting Solutions
• Power System Design
• Optimizing Converter Performance
• Power Electronics Applications
