IMAPS-UK Altogether, better connected!

iPower 4 – Powering The Future – Thursday 24 November 2022 at the University of Nottingham

IMAPS-UK’s iPower4 Conference on Powering the Future will take place on Thursday 24 November 2022 at the Jubilee Conference Centre at the University of Nottingham, in a face to face format. The Conference will be preceded by a Half-Day Workshop on Power Electronics Packaging – Training and Upskilling on the afternoon of Wednesday 23 November 2022.

Powering the Future will present some of the most significant challenges to be faced by a wide range of electrical and electronic based industries in the next decade. Getting reliable and fully functional products to market will require electronic and electrical packaging solutions that can operate at higher currents and voltages, faster frequencies and increased temperatures. This conference will hear from OEMs, material and equipment suppliers and academia about the current and future solutions to meet these demanding requirements. The Conference concludes with a tour of the adjacent Power Electronics and Machines Centre (PEMC) at the University of Nottingham, featuring state of the art laboratories for power electronics, high voltage and machine drives and converters.
