APEC 2019

Tradeshows & Conferences

Anaheim, CA, USA

Yole Développement invites you to join us at APEC.

APEC focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business. This is not just a designer’s conference; APEC has something of interest for anyone involved in power electronics:

  • Equipment OEMs that use power supplies and dc-dc converters in their equipment
  • Designers of power supplies, dc-dc converters, motor drives, uninterruptable power supplies, inverters and any other power electronic circuits, equipment and systemsManufacturers and suppliers of components and assemblies used in power electronics
  • Manufacturing, quality and test engineers involved with power electronics equipment
  • Marketing, sales and anyone involved in the business of power electronics
  • Compliance engineers testing and qualifying power electronics equipment or equipment that uses power electronics



Yole Développement will participate in the following:

“Every Power Electronic company should be involved in the growing EV/HEV industry: True or False”

On March 19, 2019 during the Market Research Session
Ana Villamor, Technology & Market Analyst, Power Electronics Division, at Yole Développement

Abstract: Electric and hybrid electric vehicles (EV/HEVs) represent a healthy and growing market, driven by sustainable trends. The demand for electrified vehicles continues to grow and will overpass 18 million units per year by 2023. New players from different technology areas (material and equipment suppliers, power electronic device manufacturer, system integrators, car makers…) are entering EV/HEV business. New divisions or joint ventures, fully dedicated to EV/HEVs are being established by many companies. The strong technology requirements and at the same time tough product qualification challenges call for development of new power electronic technologies. The high volume demand for EV/HEV attracts many players to be first to develop and implement such new solutions. In addition to already big EV/HEV market, the newly developed solutions can be also implemented in other applications areas, so further increasing business opportunities. More… here



Power Electronics: An application driven market”

On March 19, 2019 during the Market Research Session
Ana Villamor, Technology & Market Analyst, Power Electronics Division, at Yole Développement

Abstract: To understand the power electronics market it is important to recognize that power electronics is application driven, not technology driven, unlike other ‘More than Moore’ electronics areas. In recent years this market has grown thanks to megatrends such as the arrival of the digital era or environmental issues. We can directly link the latter to governmental funds given by different countries for energy efficiency improvement, increasing sales of new power electronics systems. More… here



“What can power electronics industry expect from SiC & GaN?”

On March 19, 2019 during the Market Research Session
Ana Villamor, Technology & Market Analyst, Power Electronics Division, at Yole Développement

Abstract: Different applications as EV/HEV, motor drives or renewable energies are bringing new requirements and new trends in power inverters. Since several years, the power electronics market is rising thanks to the development of the next generation of products for a better environment, with higher efficiency and size reduction. The power electronics global industry represents a huge market, with a market value of $32.7B in 2017. Yole forecasts further growth with a CAGR 2017-2023 of 4%. Up to now, the power electronics market has been dominated by silicon, but with the arrival of Wide Band Gap (WBG) materials such as SiC or GaN, there will be a battlefield on different segments to gain market.
