Thursday, Nov 10 – Keysight talk hosted by PELS at U of A

If anyone would like a FREE copy of Alan’s excellent book, “The Parametric Measurement Handbook” please let me know (  We have about 10 copies left.

For our November section meeting we had a distinguished talk co-hosted with our UA power electronics student society and made possible by 4th IEEE Workshop on Wide Bandgap Power Devices and Applications going on in Fayetteville this week.  Alan Wadsworth of Keysight discussed the challenges of working with wide-bandgap devices in the power electronics area.  The talk went go over both power semiconductor devices as well as the challenges of using them in DC or AC, single or three phase systems (

Keysight Technologies, or Keysight, is a US company that manufactures test and measurement equipment and software. In 2014, Keysight was spun off from Agilent Technologies, bringing with it the product lines focused on electronics and radio, leaving Agilent with the chemical and bio-analytical products.  Prior to its existence as an independent company, the group that became Keysight was Hewlett-Packard (HP)’s and then Agilent’s electronic test and measurement division.
