Title: Powering the Future – Research and Current Trends Shaping the Next Generations of Power Management ICs
Date and Time: 13th December 2022 at 3pm
Venue: MMCR EE
Abstract: Power management has been a key enabler for a variety of ever increasing modern day electronic applications like smartphones, data center servers, electric vehicles and smart grids to name a few. High-efficiency, small form-factor, reliability and lower cost will continue to be critical requirements of power regulation for such applications. In this talk, details about what constitutes this broad area of power management along with research vectors and market trends defining the next-generation ICs in power conversion is presented. Specifically i) ultra-low power consumption converters ii) Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC) based power converters and iii) low noise and low EMI power conversion, are identified and described as three major focus areas. Personal research contributions, insights into latest research and industry products, and future performance trendlines are presented in detail.
Speaker Bio: Raveesh Magod received the M.S. and Ph.D. degree in Electrical engineering from Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA, in 2014 and 2018 respectively. In 2017, he joined Jack Kilby Labs, Texas Instruments, Dallas, TX, USA, where he is Member of Technical Staff and has been involved in R&D of wide range of power converter products ranging from nanopower voltage regulators to high power-density DC-DC converters and recently has been focusing on GaN based power converters. From 2015 to 2016, he was an analog design intern at Texas Instruments, Tucson, AZ, USA, where he designed low-power voltage supervisors and low quiescent current LDOs. From 2010 to 2012, he was a Design Engineer at Sankalp Semiconductor (A HCL technologies company), Hubli, India, developing low-power CMOS interface solutions. He was the co-recipient of A.K. Chowdhary Best Paper award at the International conference on VLSI Design, 2021 and has five granted/pending U.S. patents to his name. He also serves as a technical program committee member for the CICC and a reviewer for multiple reputed IEEE journals.
