Alexander Gerfer, CTO of Würth Elektronik eiSos Group, has been appointed to the 12-strong board of directors of the Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA). The international association for power electronics has set itself the goal of increasing and propagating knowledge about technologies and developments in the context of energy sources and the transformation of energy.
“It is a great honour for me to join the board of directors of this prestigious organisation. The PSMA has rendered outstanding service globally in the dissemination of knowledge in the electronics industry. I wish to help intensify these activities through my work,” says Alexander Gerfer. “From my experience in application and design consultancy at Würth Elektronik eiSos, I know: as an engineer, you never stop learning. Particularly the new generation of SiC and GaN high power switches which has special challenges for us as a manufacturer of inductive components. Besides the transfer of practical knowledge, new core materials and package types are also important with a requirement for improved specification data. New topologies are also called for here in order to achieve maximum efficiency. I would like to support bridge building between university research and technical expertise in industry,” stresses Alexander Gerfer.
