Power Devices and ICs Committee


1. Monitor the status of EDS meetings, education programs and activities, publications and awards in areas of power semiconductor devices and ICs

2. Identify key trends and new areas of interest within this field

3. Recommend new workshops, conferences, and/or conference sessions to serve identified needs of the community

4. Supporting special issues with focus in this field for major publications
Membership Members are volunteers who serve for a two-year renewable term at the invitation of the committee chair. Membership is limited to two consecutive terms so that new ideas can be generated, incorporated, and executed.
Operation This committee operates primarily by email and has at least one in-person meeting each year (held in conjunction with IEDM).
Conferences 2014 Power Device Conferences
Contact If you have ideas that you would like to have considered by this committee (e.g. a new workshop, aspecial issue, topics for special sessions, etc.) please contact any current committee member. If you would like to volunteer on the committee, please contact the committee chair.

      Nando Kaminski (M´02-SM´07) received the Dipl. Ing. and the Dr.-Ing. degrees in electrical engineering from University of Bremen, Germany, in 1994 and 2001, respectively. His doctoral research at the Daimler-Benz research institute Frankfurt am Main, Germany, focused on silicon carbide power devices, in particular MPS-diodes and JFETs.

      He joined ABB Semiconductors Ltd. in Lenzburg, Switzerland, in 1998. He worked on IGBTs, IGCTs, diodes, packaging, and reliability. He held various positions as project, team, laboratory, and customer support manager in R&D and quality before he finally became department manager and head of the IGBT module production line.

      In 2008 he was appointed full professor of power semiconductor devices at University of Bremen, Germany, and one of two directors of the Institute for Electrical Drives, Power Electronics, and Devices (IALB). His research interests include alternative semiconductor materials, material basics, device concepts, simulation, packaging, reliability, influence of parasitics, and EMC.

      His chair is Centre of Competence of the European Center for Power Electronics e.V. (ECPE), Nuremberg, Germany. He is member of the technical committee of the PCIM, and technical program chairman of the CIPS and the ISPS and he has been appointed the technical program committee chairman of the ISPSD’20 in Vienna, Austria.
