Welcome to the first installment of my APEC blog where I’ll be posting my insights and observations about the best papers and technology at APEC 2013. Below are a few things that interest me as the day begins.
I notice that multiple sessions touch on GaN and SiC technology. Most technical sessions have something on ZVS (Zero Voltage Switching) or Resonant Control. However, I don’t see these technologies moving forward without improvement in 5 MHz to 20 MHz magnetics so I expect a lot of floor talk on that subject.
Today’s Plenary speeches have two particularly great speakers in the line-up. I’m interested to hear Dr. Umesh Mishra talk about GaN technology. And Cian Ó Mathúna, should have plenty to say about magnetic-on- a-chip.
