The workshop brought together 116 experts from 16 countries to share their expertise, recent developments and visions of electronics applications based on wide bandgap materials.
In a preceded tutorial on May 21st, the participants had the opportunity to learn more about wide bandgap device design and operation, packaging technology, system applications and device driver issues. The organisers were RISE, the SiC Power Center and Yole Développement (with the support of the Swedish Energy Agency).
Furthermore, the workshop was accompanied by a brokerage event, where 64 participants took the opportunity to get in contact with potential partners and discuss specific collaborations in 37 B2B meetings.
