Research

Research collaborations focus on areas identified by corporate members as relevant to industry needs including:

R&D efforts span multiple levels in the power electronics space to support a variety of industry-sponsored projects and train the next generation of engineers in critical areas. In particular, the Center explores new circuit architectures and design techniques that leverage high-level integration to expand the boundaries of efficiency and power density.

PMIC emphasizes passive component innovation and integration, magnetic materials and component design, and new high-density resonant structures for power delivery. At the system-level, new control techniques, novel circuit operation, and integration strategies are explored that can improve performance and robustness while reducing size and cost.
