2020 International Power Supply-on-Chip (PwrSoC) Corridor Webinar Series, November 5, 10 & 12, 2020 Sponsored by PSMA and IEEE PELS
The Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA)) and IEEE Power Electronics Society (IEEE PELS) are sponsoring a webinar series during the first two weeks of November 2020. The webinar series is a corridor event made possible by the financial support of PSMA bridging the 2018 PwrSoC workshop and the 2021 PwrSoc Workshop rescheduled due to the COVID19 impact on the ability of attendees to travel to and attend a live event. The 2021 PwrSoC Workshop will be held on October 24-27, 2021, at the Singh Center for Nanotechnology on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.
The (PwrSoC) webinar series which consist of three (3) two-hour sessions on Thursday, November 5, Tuesday, November 10, and Thursday, November 12, 2020. Each session will begin at 9:00 AM CST (GMT-6). Each webinar session a different set of applications and technology developments since the 2018 workshop and may well be ready for commercialization by the 2021 workshop. There will be three presentations per session. Each presentation will be approximately 25 minutes in length. There will be a panel question and answer session for the technical presentations at the end of each webinar event. Each webinar session may remain open for an extended time for the presenters to answer as many questions as possible.
The agendas of the webinar events are as follows:
PwrSoC attendees have always recognized the Workshop value as an event that brings together global academic and industry experts to formally and informally discuss issues to advance and productize power-supply-on-chip technologies. Mark Allen, Chair for the 2021 Workshop and the 2020 Corridor Webinar has indicated:
“… the 2020 webinar series will fill a void in the timing of the live workshop series created by the COVID-19 situation by taking advantage of experiences with virtual workshops that have become more prevalent this past year to improve interaction for virtual global events and further develop the interactive experiences of a virtual format which may become more prevalent in the future … “
Registration for the corridor webinar event will begin in early September. Registration details are available at PwrSoC Corridor Webinar Series Registration. The webinar series will be free of charge. The number of attendees that can register is limited; we advise you to register early.
Registered attendees for the workshop will have access to the presentations prior to the webinar series. This will allow registered attendees to submit questions in advance of the webinars. Recording of the panel Q&A will be made available to registered attendees after the webinar series is completed. This will allow registered attendees across global time zones to conveniently access the presentations and submit questions.
Throughout its history, the workshop has spotlighted advanced technologies to build granular and modular power supplies and compelling demonstrations of commercialized products that make a clear case for PwrSoC and PSiP technologies becoming more prominent and mainstream.
The technical program chairs for the 2021 workshop are Matt Wilkowski of EnaChip and Hanh-Phuc Le of the University of California at San Diego. Matt and Hanh-Phuc have both been presenters, session chairs, and program chairs for past Power Supply on Chip workshops. A team of world-renowned experts, innovators, and pioneers of the Power Supply on Chip technology has been assembled to chair the workshop’s nine sessions.
The planning of the technical program, supporting activities as well as identifying workshop partners to contribute to its success are in process. If interested to be a workshop partner, please contact the workshop financial chair, Trifon Liakopoulos, at the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Continuing the tradition of the enthusiasm, market relevance, and success of past workshops, we are looking forward to a virtual corridor event in November 2021 bridging discussions and developments since the most recent PwrSoC workshop in Taiwan during October 2018, while progressing along the path to the 2021 PwrSoC Workshop in Philadelphia, PA.
