In the next decades, power electronic system development will be driven by energy saving systems, intelligent energy management, power quality, system miniaturization and high reliability. Monolithic and hybrid system integration will include advanced device concepts including wide bandgap devices, new packaging technologies and the overall integration of actuators/drives (mechatronic integration).

CIPS -  is consequently focused on the following main aspects:

  • assembly and interconnect technology for power electronic devices and converters
  • integration of hybrid systems and mechatronic systems with high power density
  • systems‘ and components‘ operational behavior and reliability

Basic technologies for integrated power electronic systems as well as upcoming new important applications will be presented in interdisciplinary invited papers.

In 2022 the successful story of CIPS will continue as the conference focus is today more important than ever – increasing functionality, energy efficiency and system reliability while decreasing cost.

We thank all authors who responded to the call for papers and registered a contribution. Now these contributions will be evaluated and the preliminary conference program will be compiled.

We also offer you the possiblity to book an exhibition space and present your products to the community of CIPS. The exhibition will take place in the foyer of the event hotel.

We are looking forward to welcoming you 2022 in Berlin!

ETG Workshop Circuit Technology for GaN Devices in Power Electronics

Ausschaltvorgang eines 650V GaN-HEMT(c) Professur Leistungselektronik - Helmut-Schmidt-Universität

The day before CIPS, this workshop will take place in the same hotel as CIPS. Please note: Language german.

GaN components have undergone rapid development in recent years and are becoming more and more established in applied power electronics. Meanwhile, power semiconductor devices from various manufacturers are commercially available in different designs and technologies as well as voltage and current classes and are on their way to application.

More and more users are investing in research and development to exploit the potential of fast GaN semiconductor switches for their systems. This raises many questions about suitable transistor technology, optimal circuit topologies, gate driver units and practical implementation, for example with regard to construction and integration techniques or EMC. In addition to the classic hard switching applications, in which the low forward resistances of the GaN components are used, users focus on the high switching frequencies achievable with GaN as well as resonant or quasi-resonant circuits.
