Contributed Design Features
Approximately 2,000 words in length, these in-depth articles address a variety of practical design issues in the field of power electronics. If you have an article proposal, please submit an abstract to the editor. If you’re targeting a specific design feature in a particular issue, please submit your proposal at least three months in advance of the issue date.

Special Features
Spotlight features extend our reporting on new power products by providing focused coverage in key areas. These round-up-style articles will cover developments in magnetic components, passive components, test and measurement equipment, and circuit protection. If you have any applicable product announcements, please send them to the editor.

The Digital Power Supplement will explore critical design issues in digital power management, addressing requirements of ac-dc and dc-dc power supply applications.

A pullout poster, this reference-style Power-Supply Standards wall chart will provide a guide to established and emerging power supply packaging formats.

Online Exclusives
The Power Electronics Technology website offers numerous exclusive features that enhance the magazine’s coverage of timely design topics and provides resources for engineers seeking information on all aspects of power electronics design.

Inside the Industry: Each month, long-time industry veterans Alan Elbanhawy and Lou Pechi share their views on hot-button issues affecting the power electronics technology and business. The columns are highlighted in PETech Times, the weekly e- newsletter of Power Electronics Technology.

Alan Elbanhawy has over 38 years of engineering experience in power supply design and R&D management covering aerospace, military, commercial, and industrial applications. Alan has presented numerous technical papers at major power conferences around the world. Alan currently serves as director in the Advanced Power System Center at Fairchild Semiconductor International.

Lou Pechi brings over 45 years of engineering, sales management, and marketing experience in the power supply industry to bear in discussing recent industry trends. Lou is currently the president of Lou Pechi, STRATA- Strategic Advisors, and serves as chairman of the marketing committee in the Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA).

Special Design Sections: These sections feature design articles on two high-growth application areas — Power over Ethernet and Lighting Power Management — giving designers access to tutorial and advanced design information on these topics.

Spotlight on Digital Power: This one-of-a-kind microsite brings together a host of design resources to help power system designers come up to speed on the advanced field of digital power control. Contents include numerous design articles, product information, industry news, exclusive commentaries, and a special “Ask the Experts” feature known as the Digital Power Q&A. The site also links to relevant conference papers and vendor white papers.

Power IC Wall Chart. Based on data supplied by the Power Sources Manufacturers Association, this PDF version of our pullout poster provides a graphical overview of all the power IC product categories offered by vendors throughout the industry.

Power Semiconductor Packaging Wall Chart. This PDF version of our pullout poster provides a graphical overview of power IC package options offered by vendors throughout the industry.

Industry Events: With nearly 50 listings of power electronics industry conferences, trade shows and technology forums in the United States and abroad, this calendar helps power electronics professionals identify and plan participation in the most relevant industry events in all areas of power electronics.

PETech Times: Broadcast weekly to more than 27,000 engineers, this e-newsletter extends the technology and new product coverage provided in the magazine, while also reporting on the latest power electronics industry news.
