Semitrex's Michael Freeman to Speak at Darnell's Energy Summit

Inventor of Revolutionary Power Conversion Technology to Discuss New Way to Power the World

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2015) - Addressing the global energy crisis, Michael H. Freeman, J.D., CEO/CTO for power semiconductor company Semitrex, will deliver a presentation titled 'A New Way to Power the World with High Efficiencies' at Darnell's Energy Summit in Los Angeles. Freeman's presentation will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 9:30 a.m. at the Ayres Hotel Manhattan Beach/Hawthorne. The event is comprised of three forums: Darnell Power Forum, which focuses on advanced power conversion technologies for next-generation electronic device power systems, as well as the Green Building Power Forum and the Smart Grid Electronics Forum.

Power demands are growing steadily each year -- as an example, the International Energy Agency (IEA) calculates that the demand for energy in network-enabled devices is growing at a rate of six percent each year, with an estimated rate of 1,000 terawatt-hours consumed by the year 2022. With this growth in energy demand and consumption comes significant energy waste on a global scale. For example, vampire (standby power) loads are causing over $80 billion in losses around the world and stressing the world's electric grids. These conditions have led the U.S. Department of Energy to enact Level VI energy efficiency standards that place stringent limitations on standby current draws, which will go into effect next year. Europe is poised to enact similar standards in 2017, and many other governments are expected to follow suit. It's clear that energy efficiency considerations have become a prerequisite for any electronic device entering the market.

To address the growing energy crisis, a new approach to powering the world is needed -- and Semitrex has developed a power semiconductor chip technology to do just that. The company created a quantum shift in the digital power management industry based on capacitive voltage reduction technology breakthroughs, which enable manufactures to easily surpass the new efficiency standards. At the Energy Summit, Freeman will discuss the TRONIUM™ Power Supply System(s) on a Chip™ (PSSoC) family of products and how they dramatically reduce energy waste at active loads and no loads, reduce parts by over 50 percent, standardize a power footprint for multiple voltage levels, and produce a new class of globally efficient power supplies.

"At Semitrex, we set out to reduce world energy consumption by developing radical new efficiencies through digital power semiconductor solutions," noted Freeman. "Being invited to speak at the Energy Summit along with speakers from other industry-leading companies such as Infineon, Microchip and STMicroelectronics is a great honor -- and a clear indication that our approach is making an impact."

The first comprehensive power conversion breakthrough in decades, Semitrex's core energy efficiency power supply technology improves the way that power conversions are made in order to create a significant increase in power efficiency and reduce grid stress. Semitrex uses its Muxcapacitor™ capacitive voltage conversions as the primary method of voltage reduction rather than traditional topologies, which rely on inductive parts for voltage conversions. Specifically, Semitrex technology has the ability to convert AC power worldwide to virtually any lower voltage with over 90 percent efficiency (across all load ranges) from 50 milliamps up, with less than one milliwatt of standby draw power.
