Other topics will include 42V standards, potential problems with 42V, voltages beyond 42V, and the impact of 42V on materials selection. The instructers will be Randy Frank and John G.W. West.

Each participant in the workshop will receive a 300-page illustrated workbook. No prerequisites or prior knowledge of the systems is required. The workshop is intended for application engineers, product designers, automotive engineers, quality managers, semiconductor and components suppliers, and product research specialists.
