The course conveys a solid understanding of the use of modern semiconductor technologies in power electronic applications. Based on the relevant figures of merit of Si, GaN and SiC based power semiconductors, aspects of power device characterization and modeling, circuit design, mounting and packaging and reliability will be covered. An additional focus is on the current front of research and development and the challenges of high power density and fast-switching power converter applications.
This course will be equally compelling for practitioners in industry who are looking for ways to reposition, further or deepen their careers toward cutting-edge power IC design.
