January 20, 2011 — The Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA) Nanotechnology Committee is sponsoring a Special Presentation session at APEC 2011 titled "Nanotechnology: Enabling the Next Generation of Power Electronics."
The session will take place on Thursday morning, March 10th, 2011 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas and will provide a broad overview of current nanotechnology applications, materials and opportunities.
Featured are six invited experts from industry, research and government who will provide attendees an overview of the current applications and insights that may enable them to anticipate and identify potential opportunities for their companies to participate in markets with this emerging technology. Nanotechnology is already being applied in semiconductors, components, packaging and power storage designs.
According to Gerald Castellucci, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and Ernie Parker, Crane Aerospace & Electronics, co-chairs of the session, "This Special Presentation session will not only be very informative but will also provide an opportunity for attendees to interact with other professionals who are active in the evolving application of nanotechnology in materials and designs. We encourage people to register for APEC 2011 and make plans to attend the Special Presentation Session and to consider participating in the other PSMA-sponsored meetings during the week."
A non-profit professional organization, PSMA was founded to enhance the stature, reputation and products of its member organizations, while also improving their knowledge of existing and emerging power source technologies and their application. PSMA’s stated aim is to educate the entire electronics industry, academia, government and industry agencies on the importance of power-source and conversion devices to the continued development and advancement of power electronics systems for the betterment of all.
