Fairchild Semiconductor Technologists to Present at the International Power Electronics Conference - IPEC

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine --(Business Wire)-- April 1, 2005 -- Leading technologists from Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE:FCS) will present four technical papers at the upcoming International Power Electronics Conference (IPEC) in Niigata, Japan, April 4-8. The papers will cover a broad range of power-optimization topics incorporating power modules for switched-reluctance motor drives, smart power and power factor correction modules, MOSFETs, and other innovative Fairchild product solutions. Now in its fifth year, IPEC provides academics, engineers and researchers with a venue for exploring and discussing the latest developments and trends impacting the power electronics, motor drive and motion control arenas.

Leveraging its technical insight into power-optimization issues, Fairchild Semiconductor's presentations will include:

-- Session 25-4: "Effect of Distributed Gate ESR on Localized Shoot-Through on the MOSFET Die," by Alan Elbanhawy, Fairchild Semiconductor. Wednesday, April 6; 2:45 P.M. Room 201A.

-- Session 61-4: "Development of a Power Module for Single-Phase Switched Reluctance Motor Drives," by Man-Lee Kim, Yo-Chan Son, Bum-Seok Suh and Ki-Young Jang, Fairchild Semiconductor. Friday, April 8; 9:45 A.M. Room 303/304.

-- Session 48-4: "Design of a High-Side Gate Driver Using a Mini-SPM," by Jun-Bae Lee, Byoung-Chul Cho, Dae Woong Chung and Bum-Seok Suh, Fairchild Semiconductor. Thursday, April 7; 11:45 A.M. Room 201A.

-- Session 38-5: "Partial Switching Power Factor Correction Module," by Ki-Young Jang, Yo-Chan Son, Man-kee Kim, Sungil Yong and Bum-Seok Suh, Fairchild Semiconductor. Wednesday, April 6; 5:40 P.M. Room 303/304.
