Invitation: 2022 CASPA Special Seminar I: Opportunities and Challenges of Power Semiconductors

Daniel Nenni

Staff member
The power semiconductor market is rising thanks to emerging technologies from power devices to power management ICs. The adoption of power semiconductors is on a huge rise across the new market verticals like compact consumer electronics, 5G communication, Data Center, Automotive, especially fast growing Electric Vehicles, and more.

In the wake of this big moment for the power semiconductors, CASPA, the largest Chinese American semiconductor professional association worldwide, carrying the mission to promote the technology innovations in high-tech community, plans to organize a special seminar discussing the technology trend in power semiconductors, from wide band gap technology - GaN, SiC, to emerging power semiconductor technology, such as integrated voltage regulator, USB power delivery solutions, and system & applications.

The seminar will be held on Saturday, Jan.29th, 4:00PM-6:45PM. It will be organized with 20 minutes speech with 5 min Q&A time for each speaker, followed by a 45 min panel discussion session by the speakers and panelist.
