Check Out the Opportunity to be a PwrSoC Workshop 2018 Partner

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the International Workshop on Power Supply On Chip (PwrSoC) is the leading international forum for the discussion of the challenges and opportunities, in technology, business and supply-chain, to be considered in advancing the miniaturization and integration of power conversion and power management solutions. The workshop will feature advanced technologies from global academic and industry experts aimed at miniaturizing power management circuits and passive components initially in package, (power supply in a package – PSiP) but ultimately on-chip, (power supply on chip – PwrSoC). Highlight topics this year are 1) manufacturing given the workshop will be held in one of the world’s chief manufacturing centers, and 2) low-voltage, wide-bandgap (WBG) devices for integrated power management.

Attendees are dedicated to advancing integrated power conversion technologies and products. The workshop covers the integration of both modular and granular chip integrated electronic power converters for multiple applications, by accessing a broad range of leading-edge technologies. System performance is challenged to meet the demand for ever-greater current density, more accurate voltage regulation, optimized control, reduction of form factor, higher efficiency, and cost reduction in current and emerging applications.

Hsinchu, Taiwan 2018

PwrSoC started by the initiative of Tyndall Institute, in Cork, Ireland, where the first 2 editions were hosted in 2008 and 2010. IEEE/PELS and PSMA became co-sponsors of the workshop, strengthening its international scope in San Francisco (2012), Boston (2014), and Madrid (2016). In 2018 it will be held in Hsinchu, Taiwan a center of world leading microelectronics development and manufacturing. This rotation -Europe, America, Asia- reflects the ambition of PwrSoC to remain a global workshop. To celebrate the 10th anniversary, PSMA, in partnership with IEEE PELS, is organizing the next workshop to be hosted by National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) in Hsinchu, Taiwan October 17, 18, 19 2018.

Organized by International Team

Professor Ke-Horng Chen, Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NCTU is General Co-Chair along with Professor Cian Ó Mathúna, Tyndall National Institute, the originator of the workshop. Given the aforementioned level of current industry interest and progress in the commercialization of the PwrSoC, it is appropriate that the 10th anniversary workshop should be held in Taiwan, a global center of microelectronics design and manufacturing.

The Technical Program Chair for the 2018 workshop is Professor Hanh-Phuc Le, Dept. of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder.  In the next weeks the Program Organizing Committee will be assembling a focused single track set of academic and company development presentations.

Great Diversity & Balance

PwrSoC is unique, in the sense that it attracts a great diversity of companies and university. The organizing committee members and invited session presenters represent a very well balanced diversity of global regions and institutions.

2018 Organizer and Presenter Statistics

2016 Attendee Statistics

Statistics from last edition show that there is a good balance, of around 200 attendees with expertise in fundamentals & basic research, technology development, IC manufacturing and system integration. Graphs_2014
