Abstract- The IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition, ECCE, recently celebrated its tenth anniversary and a decade that coincided with an unprecedented shift in technology for power generation, delivery, and conversion. This shift, coupled with the advent of smart phones and IOT, has enabled an explosive growth in electronification in industrial, consumer, and automotive markets. According to IC Insights, power management ICs ship in greater quantity than any other type of IC device. The resulting broad application corresponds with an impressive expansion in the features and capabilities of power semiconductors to address the vast scope of end equipment needs. This presentation will examine the changes in power management semiconductors over the past decade. Integration, system in package, voltage levels, and process technologies will be discussed. How different features are necessary for different markets and applications will be considered. The webinar will conclude with an examination of the 2019 Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC), demonstrating the continued expansion of semiconductor capabilities and applications.
