Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES) was established in 1998 with the mission to develop advanced electronic power conversion technologies for efficient future electric energy utilization through multidisciplinary engineering research and education. The CPES vision has been to enable dramatic improvements in the performance, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of electric energy processing systems by developing an integrated system approach via integrated power electronics modules (IPEMs). The IPEM-based system solutions address, concurrently, the integration of active and passive components, packaging materials, interconnect structures, electromagnetic compatibility and electromagnetic interference, thermal management, numerous application considerations, as well as system integration by incorporating integrated design methodology. This paper summarizes in the form of brief “nuggets” some of the major CPES contributions over the last ten years in all of these areas.
