Infineon Virtual Power ConferenceApril 28, 2021 by Shannon Cuthrell
Infineon’s Virtual Power Conference, held May 4–6, will feature live expert panels and product demos showcasing the company’s latest energy efficiency solutions.
At its digital-only conference next month, German semiconductor giant Infineon will showcase products across its transport and e-mobility, consumer and industry portfolios. The event will also offer a dedicated “board corner” with reference designs and evaluation boards.
Infineon’s Virtual Power Conference will be held May 4–6, 2021.
The technical talks and product presentations will center around the theme of energy efficiency, with Infineon highlighting the use of Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors to drive the next generation of high-power applications, from electric vehicles to smart buildings.
Each day of the event, Infineon’s experts will lead discussions on a range of topics relevant to power electronics industry leaders, engineers and enthusiasts. Sessions will cover automotive SiC trends (featuring Hyundai Motor Group), hydrogen generation and consumption solutions, IGBTs as a key element for HVDC systems, improving motor system efficiency with a GaN-based FOC motor drive, and more.
Infineon will demo its new servo drive without a cooling fan, which enables passive cooling in automation and robotics applications, as well as its HybridPACK Drive CoolSiC MOSFET electrification solutions, a new press pack IGBT for high power drives and wind energy systems, its digital hybrid flyback controller that provides ultra-high-power density and enhanced efficiency to USB-C chargers, and more.
Some of these products were also featured at Infineon’s last virtual event, the Wide-Bandgap Developer Forum, on March 11.
Registration is free. Attendees will get access to the livestream and digital booth areas.
Infineon’s conference will be held in conjunction with PCIM Europe digital days, planned for May 3–7. During the five-day virtual event, Infineon representatives will deliver technical talks on topics such as the benefits of WBG switches on asymmetrical half-bridge flyback converter, GaN-based IPS for low power adapter/charger applications, and investigating output stage in gate driver ICs.
PCIM Europe, one of the industry’s most popular events, held its first series of digital days last July, supplementing the in-person event in Germany with an online experience as COVID-19 spread across Europe. The program featured more than 300 conference and forum presentations from 74 companies, drawing a turnout of over 4,500 participants using the virtual event platform.
