APEC Comes to the Sunshine State – Tampa, March 26-30, 2017
The Applied Power Electronics Conference, which will convene March 26-30, 2017 at the Tampa, Florida Convention Center, continues the longstanding tradition of addressing issues of immediate and long-term interest to the practicing power electronics engineer. This annual event is jointly sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS), IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS), and Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA). The event seems to set records every year for the number of papers, the size of the exhibit and the number of attendees.
CEOs Discuss Security and Safety Issues at Electronica
Security, safety and the protection of data and systems are gaining in importance. This is evident in many massive threats companies have to deal with; numerous attacks demonstrate the vulnerability of entire branches of the economy. Thus the development of strategies and protection mechanisms against all these threats is of paramount importance.

Looking Back and Forward on 10 Years with GaN Systems
Back in the dark days after the internet bubble burst, Nortel had demised, and high tech in Canada’s Silicon Valley North was in the doldrums. The idea of starting a semiconductor company based on an unknown technology probably seemed an insane idea. But that’s exactly what my partner John Roberts and I did. John was a fifty year veteran of the semiconductor business; I a serial entrepreneur with some half-dozen start-ups and IPOs to my credit. Recognizing those were our strengths and we weren’t about to learn new ones at this stage in our careers, we created GaN Systems.
Interview: Electronics with Diamonds
Since quite some time, Silicon is still the workhorse of the electronics industry, but semiconductors with a broad bandgap (WBGS) are already winning ground in certain applications faster and faster. For instance Akhan Semiconductor concentrates on the diamond technology. Diamond is unmatched in its ability to diffuse heat, perform as a semiconductor, and create smaller and more powerful electronics. Henning Wriedt: Mr. Khan, where do Wide Band Gap Semiconductors (WBGS) have their place in the semiconductor technology field and on the application side?
Magnetics: The Eternal Battle with Myths, Mysteries and Black Magic – or Maybe Really all Just a Matter of Basic Principles and Physics?
Is magnetism an esoteric science of the 18th century or perhaps even black magic? Are magnetics really a closed book for the user? Or EMC ferrites an unknown entity?
