(Hsinchu East Gate) (NCTU Campus)
International Workshop on Power Supply On Chip (PwrSoC) is the leading international technical workshop is focused on the integration of electrical power converters for multiple applications, and address a broad range of technologies. The complete integration on-die (PwrSoC) and integration within package (PSiP) are of prime interest. Attendees are dedicated to advancing integrated power conversion technologies. The workshop covers the integration of both modular and granular 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, voltage regulation and optimized control, form factor reduction, high efficiency, and cost reduction in current and emerging applications.
In 2018, the International Workshop on Power Supply on Chip (PwrSoC) will be 10 years old. And to celebrate the 10th anniversary, PSMA, in partnership with IEEE PELS, is organizing the next workshop in Hsinchu, Taiwan in the autumn/fall of 2018.
PwrSoC 2018 in Hsinchu
Our next workshop will be hosted by the National Chiao Tung University in Hsinchu. Professor Ke-Horng Chen, Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in NCTU will take on the role of General Co-Chair along with Prof. Cian Ó Mathúna, Tyndall National Institute, the originator of the workshop. Given the aforementioned level of current industry interest in the commercialization of the technology, it is appropriate that the 10th anniversary workshop should be held in Taiwan, the global centre of microelectronics production.
The Technical Programme Chair for the 2018 workshop is Prof. Hanh-Phuc Le, Dept. of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder. Hahn-Phuc, who is a very familiar participant in PwrSoC events, will be starting to assemble a Technical Programme Committee together over the coming months. Anyone interested in participating, please contact Hahn-Phuc directly. hanhphuc@Colorado.ED or
History & Statistics
PwrSoC started by the initiative of Tyndall Institute, in 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) and Boston (2014). In 2016 it will be held in Madrid, and in 2018 in Taiwan. This rotation -Europe, America, Asia- reflects the ambition of PwrSoC to remain a global workshop.
PwrSoC is unique, in the sense that it attracts a great diversity of companies and universities. Statistics from last edition show that there is a good balance, over 200 attendees with expertise in fundamentals &basic research, technology development, IC manufacturing and system integration.
