Energy: Opportunities in Smart Power Management for Alternative Energy Applications
Tuesday, July 12
Extreme Electronics TechXPOT, South Hall
Description One key part of improved cost and performance for almost all alternative energy solutions--from electric and hybrid vehicles, to solar and wind power, to a more efficient electrical grid, to more efficient appliances—is smarter power management.  As these niches now start to expand into serious markets, they’ll help push total demand for power management semiconductors to $45 billion by 2014, according to IHS iSuppli.  But these  high voltage, high current, high temperature markets make unique demands on chip and package processes and materials, for integration, thermal management, cost, size and reliability. Leading technologists will report on recent progress and the next key issues.
