Power and Sensor Devices Essential to Automotive Semiconductor Modules

Speaker: Hans Stork, Ph.D.
Affiliation: ON Semiconductor

Abstract:  Cars are increasingly driven by electronics to reduce human error, improve traffic flow and to meet environmental regulations. The semiconductor components that enable this functionality range from medium voltage discretes to replace relays to integrated, high-voltage motor drivers with re-programmability at high temperature. In this talk we will review the technology trends underlying the improvements in power discretes (IGBTs, HV FETs, and WBG devices), the scaling trends and integration challenge of HV BCD processes, as well as the assembly technology to integrate these and other heterogeneous components into power(ful) modules.

Biography: Dr. Hans Stork joined ON Semiconductor in 2011 as Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) responsible for the company’s process research and development.

With nearly three decades of experience in technology development, Dr. Stork has held various leadership positions including Group Vice President and CTO of the Si Systems Group at Applied Materials, and Senior Vice President and CTO of Texas Instruments and director of Si Technology Development at TI.
