Amping Up: New NSF U-I Research Center to Transform Power Management Electronics (2020)

February 13, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Advances in power electronics are enabling transformative improvements in miniaturization, efficiency, and cost reduction across diverse industry sectors spanning consumer, industrial, and automotive electronics. The Power Management Integration Center (PMIC) brings together leading researchers and companies to work on innovations in circuit topologies, passive components, and power management integrated circuits to enable high performance, high power density and low cost in high and low power applications.

PMIC is an Industry-University Cooperative Research Center (IUCRC) sponsored by the National Science Foundation, a program that provides an advantageous framework for industry to engage with university research, providing benefits including leveraging research funding for maximum benefit, IP rights, access to talent, and access to expertise.  PMIC offers unique capabilities in technologies critical to high-power density circuit topologies, power integrated circuits, and passive components.

About PMIC

PMIC’s mission is innovations in power electronics that support higher efficiency, smaller size, and reduced cost. Design work considers for system reliability, robustness, and performance in a diverse range of industry sectors and applications spanning consumer, industrial, and automotive electronics. Learn more.

Who Should Participate?

  • Technologists and leaders at companies and government agencies who are interested in monitoring, and driving, advances in power management technology and want access to the technology and capabilities it unleashes.

Webinar Overview

This webinar will provide an overview of PMIC research and outline PMIC’s operations, including funding, intellectual property, project selection and the Industry Advisory Board.


PMIC Director

Professor Charlie Sullivan received his BS in electrical engineering from Princeton University, and his PhD in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California at Berkeley. Before joining the engineering faculty at Dartmouth, he worked as a power electronics design engineer for Lutron Electronics Company. He has published over 180 technical papers in magnetics, power electronics, electric machine modeling and control, and energy efficiency. He holds 42 patents, was the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER award and an IEEE PELS Modeling and Control Technical Achievement Award, and is an IEEE Fellow.


PMIC Co-Director

Professor Jason Stauth received his MS and PhD degrees from UC Berkeley where he studied integrated circuits and high-frequency power electronics. He has worked or consulted for companies in automotive, consumer, and industrial areas and co-founded two companies in the renewable energy space. Stauth joined the engineering faculty at Dartmouth in 2011, is a recipient of the NSF Career Award and the Thayer School Excellence in Teaching Award, and is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics and IEEE Solid State Circuit Letters.
