A Four-Dimensional Road-Mapping Framework - IMAPS '98


This paper proposes a systematic method to link technical power packaging issues to user requirements as the basis for developing a Power Electronics Technology Roadmap. The framework goes further in proposing a framework for designers to better understand, evaluate and communicate the technical needs for integration of electrophysical power electronic circuits. This paper presents the framework as a threedimensional coordinate of User Requirements, Levels ofPackaging, and Technical Issues, cross-cut by Forms of Energy. Examples assist the reader in understanding the framework and appreciating the potential for application of the framework in the future developments of power electronics packaging.
