RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

Power electronics engineers designing power modules face a number of challenges; namely, size, weight, efficiency, cost, and robustness. This free, 1-hour webcast will explore these challenges and lay out a new workflow for overcoming them. Topics include modeling and characterization of components and devices, such as GaN transistors, electrothermal co-simulation, and integration of GaN into power electronic circuits.
Presented by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ingmar Kallfass, chair for Robust Power Semiconductor Systems at the University of Stuttgart, and sponsored by Keysight, the webcast will show how EDA tools, originally intended for RF/microwave design, can be highly beneficial when used in the workflow.
This webcast is ideal for power electronic engineers who want greater insight and rapid design space exploration that come from virtual prototypes using simulation.
Sept. 3 at 10:00 a.m. PT, 1:00 p.m. ET, 5:00 p.m. UTC
How to Design Power Electronics: HF Power Semiconductor Modeling. Registration is required to attend this webcast.
