The workshop focuses on integration of electrical power converters for multiple applications, and accessing a broad range of technologies. Complete integration on-die and integration within package are of prime interest.
System performance requirements presented by present day and emerging applications demand ever greater granularity in voltage and control, form factor reduction, efficiency, and cost reduction.
A major challenge on the path to integration and form factor reduction of dc-dc converters is the difficulty of integrating energy handling passive components with conventional silicon processes.
Strategies addressing circuit and system approaches as well as advanced technologies for the design and manufacture of these passives are focal topics for the workshop.
