scott rollerScott Roller, Vice President Systems Engineering and Marketing, Texas Instruments

There have been significant advances in the Industrial, Automotive and Power Management market segments over the last 5 years and this presentation addresses key developments in these three related areas and its implications to reliability.

The promise of Industry 4.0 and Industrial IOT has finally arrived with innovative sensors, analog and embedded semiconductor based system designs that help companies deliver smarter and safer networked systems. Real-time communication in manufacturing and customization of produced goods will increase productivity and efficiency in many industrial and automotive markets. This presentation will cover the key tenets of Industry 4.0 and its implications for systems reliability.

Automotive electronic content has steadily grown and have found their way into heavy duty applications like turbo-charging and electronic steering. This talk will cover some of these automotive trends including the 48V power distribution and the new standards required for semiconductor components. Finally, novel wide-band gap power devices to support emerging power management markets will be discussed along with their reliability challenges.
