Tokyo Conference Center Shinagawa, 1-9-36 Konan, Minato-ku Tokyo, 108-0075 Japan


12:30 to 13:00

Registration and Technical Booth Open


13:00 to 13:30

Opening Speech


13:30 to 14:15

Workshop: Avoiding common AC-DC design pitfalls

Presented by Applications Engineering

Design-in of AC-DC front end modules can be complicated. This session will provide a straightforward approach for success, covering such topics as source impedance considerations, inrush current, filter resonance and damping, PFC, faults, fusing, system stability and safety.


14:15 to 14:30

Tea Break


14:30 to 15:15

Workshop: EMI challenges and troubleshooting techniques

Presented by Applications Engineering

Without proper consideration, EMI can derail projects and create costly delays. With a real-world troubleshooting example, you will learn about basic EMI measurement, common and differential noise sources and identification methods, conducted EMI pre-compliance testing, layout issues, etc.


15:15 to 16:00

Workshop: Modular DC-DC system design done right

Presented by Applications Engineering

Real-world systems comprise more than just the DC-DC converter itself. Using a case study to examine the requirements of module integration into a DC-DC system, you will learn topics such as input and output filtering, protections, compatibility with the source and load dynamics.


16:00 to 16:15

Tea Break


16:15 to 17:00

Workshop: High-performance PCB layout and thermal design techniques

Presented by Applications Engineering

Our experts will share their optimization techniques addressing the following topics: applying thermal models and simulation, PCB layout for effective thermal management, power/signal routing and integrity in high density, high current applications to minimize board losses and maximize performance.


17:00 to 17:30

Keynote: HPC systems and power supply

Presented by Prof. MAKINO, Junichiro

In recent years, the power supply to high-performance, power-hungry processors for HPC and AI has become a very difficult problem, due to the reduction of the power supply voltage. In addition to the low voltage and high current, the rapid change in the load make the design even more difficult. As the processor design becomes more "power-efficient", this problem of the rapid load change becomes more critical. In this talk, I overview these issues, based on our past experience of the design of HPC systems.
