Helix Semiconductors CEO to Present at APEC

Session to Highlight Keys to Achieving Highest Power Density, Efficiency

SAN ANTONIO, March 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Booth #1731 – Next week at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC), Harold A. Blomquist, president and CEO of fabless power semiconductor company Helix Semiconductors, will deliver a presentation titled ‘Increased Power Density Through Capacitive Conversion – Revolution Enabled.’ Part of APEC’s ‘Isolation in Power Supplies’ industry sessions, Blomquist’s presentation will take place on Wednesday, March 7 at 8:30 a.m. in room 212 of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.

As an ever-growing number of electronic devices demand more power, new solutions are needed that offer higher power density, higher efficiency and a smaller form factor. Traditional power conversion approaches, such as transformer-based voltage reduction, just don’t cut it and a different approach is needed. Blomquist’s presentation will explore a technology approach in which higher power densities, up to 10 times higher, are enabled through capacitive power conversion and capacitive isolation.

“As the premier event for the power electronics industry, APEC is the ideal stage from which to outline the path to a true power conversion revolution,” noted Blomquist. “At Helix Semiconductors, we’re focused on continually pushing the power semiconductor solutions envelope, with the ultimate goal of ensuring a future free of energy waste.”

Helix Semiconductors’ capacitive-conversion voltage-reduction technology makes possible best-in-class energy conversion efficiency and power density across the full load range, and especially while the system is in power down (standby and vampire power) and lightly loaded operation.
