Announcement and Call for Papers '06
Also available in PDF format
Digital power electronics holds the promise of improvements in performance and reduction in cost compared with today's primarily analog techniques. However, the replacement of analog control and power management with advanced digital techniques can introduce additional complexity to the design process. To fully appreciate the promises of digital control it will be necessary for designers to employ new control models and new approaches to power system design and architectures. Significant challenges are ahead for companies eager to enter this market. The perceived complexity of “going digital” in comparison to using similar bandwidth analog components is a major hurdle companies have to surmount. Join us at the Digital Power Forum and hear about new components, new design techniques and design tools that will enable the use of digital power conversion and digital power management technologies in your next design.
