Electrified Automobility – Protecting Driver and Electronics
Dr. Hans Stork
ON Semiconductor - Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer (CTO)
With the expected rapid increase of automotive electrification, all but few functions of the automobile will be electronic. Power devices and image sensors are becoming essential components to realize the future of “automobility”. They will need to survive the extreme use / stress conditions (temperature, humidity, vibration) and meet the consumer expectations (zero failures and affordable cost). This talk will review recent progress in high power integrated circuit processes for drivetrain and other mechanical functions, discrete power devices for battery management and electromotor control, and image sensors for ADAS support, highlighting unique restrictions to manage stress conditions. The challenge of simultaneously meeting a wide range of power density, temperature, cost, and reliability requirements is feasible thanks to ongoing progress in understanding, modeling, and innovation.
Dr. Hans Stork is Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at ON Semiconductor. He oversees the development of wafer process technologies, modeling and design kits, and design libraries, as well as packaging technologies and assembly support.
Prior to joining ON Semiconductor, Dr. Stork was group vice president and CTO of the Silicon Systems Group at Applied Materials. From 2001 to 2007 he was senior vice president and the CTO of Texas Instruments. Before that, Dr. Stork held various R&D and management positions at Hewlett Packard Laboratories and at IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center.
Dr. Stork serves on the supervisory board of ASML, is a member of the scientific advisory board at IMEC, and has previously served on the boards of Sematech and the SRC. He is also a longstanding member of the SIA Technology Strategy committee.
He authored more than 100 cited papers and holds 11 U.S. patents. He was elected IEEE fellow in 1994, and served on several IEEE sponsored conference program committees, and is currently vice-chair of the technical field awards council and a member of the awards policy and portfolio review committee.
Dr. Stork was born in Soest, The Netherlands, and received the Ingenieur degree in electrical engineering (EE) from Delft
