Research

research overview

  • Researches in the iPower3Es group led by Dr. Hanh-Phuc Le are focussed on two main directions: integrated Power Electronics to improve system energy efficiency. The group research program is at the boundary of integrated circuits and power electronics aimed at miniaturizing power delivery and management units while achieving high efficiency. The research can be applied to essentially all electronic devices, particularly mobile applications, data centers, telecommunication systems, high-performance digital systems, robots, low-power biomedical implants, and the Internet of Things.
