Thomas Löher receives the best paper award at the CPMT symposium in Kyoto

Dr. Thomas Löher together with Stefan Karaszkiewicz, Lars Böttcher and Dr. Andreas Ostmann won Best Paper Award at the ICSJ, which was held November 7 - 9, 2016 in Kyoto. The ICSJ is organized by the “Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology Society” (CPMT) and is Japan’s annual IEEE CPMT symposium. It is one of the world’s leading conferences on packaging technology.

The paper, entitled “Compact power electronic modules realized by PCB embedding technology”, presented new technological approaches to embedding power electronic components in PCBs. Löher and his colleagues discussed the specific demands these approaches make on design and components, drawing on real-life experience. They also gave an overview of ongoing challenges and strategies for solving these, as well as current trends in development.
