RISE Acreo and WBG Power Center, in collaboration with Yole Développement and Enterprise Europe Network, are pleased to announce the international workshop in applications of wide bandgap (WBG) power electronics, SCAPE. This year with support from the Swedish Energy Agency, as well as the Interreg Baltic Sea Region project Green Power Electronics.
SCAPE 2018 (previously known as ISiCPEAW and IWBGPEAW) is a three-day event, consisting of two workshop days, June 11-12, preceded by one tutorial day, June 10. The event will cover the latest results and innovations in power electronics applications of wide bandgap materials, such as silicon carbide and gallium nitride. From June 10 to 12, 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. The event also includes an exhibition area and networking opportunities with business-to-business (B2B) matchmaking.
The workshop takes place Monday - Tuesday June 11 - 12. It has the overall aim to promote the use of the latest research and development results, by bringing together the foremost experts from both academia and industry. The focus lies on the use of wide bandgap materials (WBG) technology in power electronics applications, components, modules, packaging, reliability and benchmarking versus silicon power electronics. The program is defined by WBG experts and reflects the status of WBG from an industry point of view. Specialists from all over the world will present their views on current status, ongoing development and the opportunities of applications in the power electronics area. They will also present the latest products and solutions, and will be available for detailed technical discussions.
Preceding the two-day workshop, a tutorial will take place on Sunday June 10. The course will cover the subjects of WBG device design and operation, packaging technology, system applications and device driver issues.
