Switching and Packaging Technology Innovations to Deliver Next-Generation High Performance Power Modules

Power electronics are enabling the 21st century zero-emission energy network by minimizing adverse impacts of green-house emissions and with that transitioning global economies to a sustainable growth path. Innovations in power semiconductors both in switching and packaging technologies are at the heart of this transformation. Wide Gap Materials (WBG) such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are driving high-power and high-frequency switching power conversions that enable higher efficiencies compared to existing silicon power semiconductors. Simultaneously, innovations in packaging with new and high-performance interconnects, substrates and scalable packaging platforms are essential to take advantage of these new materials. Finally, supply chain resiliency is key to deliver high-performance products to emerging high-growth applications such as electric vehicles (EVs), renewable energy and charging infrastructure.
