The San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the IEEE Power Electronics Society (IEEE SFBAC-PELS) is interested in the development of power electronics technology. This technology encompasses the effective use of electronic components, the application of circuit theory and design techniques, and the development of analytical tools toward efficient electronic conversion, control, and conditioning of electric power.

About the talk:
Magnetic components pose particular challenges to both miniaturization and efficiency of power electronics systems. Converters are expected to shrink and increase in power density, while maintaining excellent efficiency, supporting sophisticated energy-saving techniques such as voltage scaling (DVS), and enabling deeper and faster PDNs. In this talk I will present the current state-of-the-art in miniaturization of magnetic components for integrated voltage regulators: fabrication techniques, materials, and designs. In addition, I will present challenges to realizing converters and regulators using those components and delineate ways to overcome those limitations.

About the Speaker:
Eyal Aklimi, Ph.D., serves as lead electronics innovator for Diamond Nanotechnologies, Boston MA, where he oversees core product development of optical imaging instrumentation of qbits (NV-centers in diamond nanoparticles). He recently graduated from Columbia University in New York, NY, and his research interests include circuits design, power electronics, semiconductors processing and applied magnetism. Previously he co-founded JUX (currently YCD-Atmosphere), a multimillion-dollar music selection algorithms and systems company. He has over 15 years of engineering experience across both industry and academia.

We look forward to having you join us.
