European research project Power2Power for more efficient power semiconductors launches

The European cooperation project Power2Power has started. Over the coming three years, 43 partners from eight countries will research and develop innovative power semiconductors with more power density and energy efficiency. Power semiconductors are needed in all stages of energy conversion: generation, transmission, and use. More efficient semiconductors make a major contribution towards reducing carbon dioxide emissions in spite of the world's growing energy needs. Universities, research institutes, small and medium-sized companies and international corporations are involved in this cooperation. Infineon Technologies Dresden GmbH & Co. KG is coordinating this project.

The participants from The Netherlands are the Advanced Packaging Center, Alfen, Boschman, IWO Project, Jiaco Instruments and Delft University of Technology as academic partner. Within TU Delft two research groups from the Faculty of EEMCS are participating: Electronic Components, Technology and Materials (ECTM) and DC Systems, Energy Conversion & Storage (DCE&S). ECTM will investigate advanced interconnect materials for the packaging of the power semiconductors and reliability improvements by using digital twinning. DCE&S will investigate use cases of the improved power semiconductors in EV charging.

Student Alberto brings wireless monitoring a step closer

In September 2017 Alberto Gancedo started his master programme Microelectronics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS). Alberto’s ambition was bigger than obtaining his degree. His ambition was to develop a small, portable and cheap monitoring device to detect unusual brain activity in premature babies directly after birth. Thanks to donations from EEMCS alumni, Alberto could start his master’s at TU Delft and work towards this ambition. Alberto graduated in the beginning of February 2020 and proudly updates Delft University Fund and EEMCS alumni about his achievements.
