On May 12-14, RISE and WBG Power Center, in collaboration with Yole Développement and the Swedish Energy Agency, held the international workshop in applications of wide bandgap power electronics, SCAPE 2019.
SCAPE 2019 (previously known as ISiCPEAW and IWBGPEAW) is a three-day event, consisting of two workshop days, May 13 - 14, preceded by one tutorial day, May 12. The event will cover the latest results and innovations in power electronics applications of wide bandgap materials, such as silicon carbide and gallium nitride.
International experts will meet in Stockholm to share their expertise, recent developments and visions of electronics applications based on wide bandgap materials. More than an overview, SCAPE proposes a focus on power electronics applications.
Founded in 2012 by Acreo Swedish ICT (part of RISE), Swerea KIMAB (now Swerim) and the Royal Institute of Technology, SiC Power Center is a platform for cooperation between industry, research institutes and academia within the whole value chain from material to systems. Leading industrial companies within automotive, energy systems and power electronics in Sweden are members of the Center.
Founded in 1998, Yole Développement has grown to become a group of companies providing marketing, technology and strategy consulting, media and corporate finance services. With a strong focus on emerging applications using silicon and/or micro manufacturing, the Yole Développement group has expanded to include more than 50 collaborators worldwide covering MEMS, Compound Semiconductors, LED, Displays, Image Sensors, Optoelectronics, Microfluidics & Medical, Advanced Packaging, Manufacturing, Nanomaterials, Power Electronics and Batteries & Energy Management.
The Swedish Energy Agency works for a sustainable energy system, combining ecological sustainability, competitiveness and security of supply. For a more efficient energy use, the Agency supports the development and dissemination of knowledge targeted at households, industry and the public sector.
