Troy, MI 48084

As new standards emerge for vehicle safety and environmental impact, designers and verification engineers are faced with the challenge of developing innovative and safe transportation power systems. SaberRD and SaberES Designer answer the call of the emerging new challenges with state-of-the-art design and verification technologies.

Attend the Synopsys Saber Seminar in Detroit and learn how our customers and partners are using Saber to address their power system verification needs. Learn from Synopsys engineers how new functional safety, advanced modeling and automation, and electrical system design and verification technologies will help quickly deliver innovative new designs to the vehicle market place that meet or exceed the emerging new standards.

Keynote Presentation: Dr. Hua (Kevin) Bai, Kettering University

Power electronics is an electrical engineering branch employing the solid switch to realize the energy transformation and transfer. As a typical interdisciplinary course, power electronics is one of the most effective ways to utilize the new energy sources and save the energy, which make it widely used in many major industrial applications such as motor drive systems and electric vehicles. Present power electronics system design emphasizes the high efficiency and high compactness. Dr. Bai will use his research and industrial experience to demonstrate power electronics research in vehicle electrification, particularly on high-power-density battery chargers and motor drive systems enabled by the wide-band gap semiconductors.
