POETS High Ambient Temperature Systems Workshop

POETS High Ambient Temperature Systems Workshop - October 4-5, 2018

A great challenge in today’s semiconductor industry is the thermal limit of electronic devices (approximately 250°C for silicon).  This thermal limit prevents the engineering of safe electronic systems with power densities exceeding ~1 kW/cm2. To overcome these significant environmental challenges, engineers integrate active cooling systems or complex packaging into the design of electronic modules to make them more durable, which significantly increases cost and payload.  What if the power electronics, microprocessors, and batteries of the future ran hotter (say, 500°C)? How would this new operating point revolutionize the design of automobiles, aircraft, and spacecraft? This POETS workshop aims to bring together leading experts (and curious minds) in the field high ambient temperature technologies to identify the needs, gaps, and roadblocks, as well as work together to identify near-term and long-term solutions via interactive and dynamic discussions.
