PowerAmerica To Chair WiPDA 2019


Wide bandgap focus for IEEE Workshop on Power Devices and Applications

Victor Veliadis, CTO of PowerAmerica, will be charing the conference program of WiPDA 2019, the 7th Annual IEEE Workshop on Power Devices and Applications, n Raleigh, North Carolina, USA, Oct. 29-31. PowerAmerica is also sponsoring the event.

According to the organisation, WiPDA 2019 will gather many professionals in the wide bandgap semiconductor field, which is reflected in the conference program.

WiPDA 2019 will feature 48 oral sessions and 33 posters, as well as keynote addresses, panels and tutorials and take place in the Stateview Hotel on the campus of North Carolina State University.

The PowerAmerica Institute at North Carolina State University is a member of Manufacturing USA. PowerAmerica was established in 2015 to help accelerate the adoption of wide bandgap semiconductor technology in the United States.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
