Yole Developpement is organizing a Market Briefing at PCIM Europe 2013. This event will take place on May 15, 2013, Hall 9 - Forum Area #461 - FREE REGISTRATION. Wideband gap semiconductor is a hot topic, but we must not forget that silicon isn't dead. On the contrary, it will continue to improve (SJ MOSFETs, Thin wafer IGBTs, etc.). Examples: ? Infineon is manufacturing power devices on 12' ? Numerous Asian players are entering the market as fabs or vertically integrated ? New applications (electric mobility, renewable energies) are attracting new players ? Competition from wide band gap semiconductors is increasing Don't miss this once-a-year opportunity to learn more about the IGBT market and its evolution. This event takes place on May 15, from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM, in the Forum area. These are some of the key trends and facts that will impact the IGBT market, and they'll be at the forefront of Yole De?veloppement's market briefing, along with our broad experience in power semiconductors. Taking place during PCIM, this market briefing is essential for all those desiring to better understand and anticipate the IGBT market's evolution. This Power Electronics Market Briefing will provide market metrics and forecasted trends for Power Electronics and evaluate their impact on the IGBTsupply-chain and technologies. Yole Developpement's Power Electronics team will also present the findings from its recent IGBT application cross-analysis. This will be followed by a presentation on IGBT's main players, including: ? Henning M. Hauenstein, VP & General Manager Automotive Products Business Unit, International Rectifier ? Asif Jakwani, BU Director, Power Discrete, ON Semiconductor ? Alexandre Avron, Technology & Market Analyst, Power Electronics, Yole De?veloppement Afterwards, all attendees are welcome to participate in a panel discussion, during which we'll compare and contrast different points-of-view and visions.
