PowerAmerica conducted yet another productive Annual Meeting, in Raleigh, North Carolina, which drew 450 in-person and virtual attendees. Tutorials were given by Eric Persson of Infineon and Hrishikesh Das of onsemi; Philip Chesley of Qorvo and Manish Dalal of GE Aerospace gave insightful perspectives in their keynote presentations; and Cengiz Balkas of Wolfspeed, Hrishikesh Das of onsemi, and Kevin Speer of Microchip shared their viewpoints in our lively “SiC Supply Chain” panel discussion.
PowerAmerica has funded $6.5M in 23 member-selected projects — with IP shared with all members. Congratulations to our 82 members who gave input to our $64M Department of Energy (DoE) renewal-funding proposal. Their amplified voice has been communicated to the White House, DoE, Department of Commerce and elsewhere in the government. Last but not least, we are grateful to AEHR Systems, John Deere and CVD Corporation for sponsoring our event.
