With 'Energy' identified as the most significant challenge facing society, this project will deliver novel solutions for efficient energy management in electronic devices. Over the next decade the concept of Power Supply on Chip('PwrSoC') will facilitate a paradigm shift in the power management for ICT technologies. This project targets innovations at different points in Power Supply development including materials, processes, design, circuit-topologies and system-integration. This project presents a disruptive solution using Through-Silicon-Via technology for realising nano-scale inductor structures on silicon to achieve high power densities and efficiency. If successful this technology will replace traditional ferrite-based passive devices for Power applications.
