The main purpose of this new Workshop is to bring together researchers in the field of power electronics components and technologies to rapidly promote the development of high-density power converter applications. Papers ranging from material technologies to system applications are sought that address important challenges and present solutions to reduce the cost and size of power converters with the highest energy conversion efficiency. Of particular interest are packaging and thermal management of advanced semiconductor devices and power switch modules, high-frequency magnetics, and high-temperature capacitors. Papers are solicited in the following general topics: ● System integration and optimization ● Compact converter design techniques ● Modeling and Simulation ● Materials and fabrication technology ● Power semiconductor devices ● Power switch modules ● High-frequency magnetics ● High-temperature capacitors ● Reliability assessmen
