Power and Sensor Devices Driving Automotive Semiconductor Applications

Johannes M.C. (Hans) Stork

Senior VP and Chief Technology Officer

On Semiconductor

Phoenix, AZ 85008 USA


Cars are increasingly driven by electronics to reduce human error, improve traffic flow and to meet environmental regulations. The semiconductor components that enable this functionality range from medium voltage discretes to replace relays to integrated, high-voltage motor drivers with re-programmability at high temperature. In this talk we will review the technology trends underlying the improvements in power discretes, such as IGBTs and GaN HEMT devices, the scaling trends and integration needs of high-voltage BCD CMOS flows, as well as the adjacent assembly challenges of power devices and power integrated modules.


Dr. Stork is Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at ON Semiconductor. He oversees the development of wafer process technologies, modeling and design kits, IP libraries, as well as packaging technologies and assembly support.

Prior to joining ON Semiconductor, Dr. Stork was Group Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of the Silicon Systems Group at Applied Materials. From 2001 to 2007 he was Senior Vice President and the Chief Technology Officer 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, and is a longstanding member of the SIA Technology Strategy Committee.

He has authored over 100 cited papers and holds eleven US patents. He was elected IEEE Fellow in 1994, and served on several IEEE sponsored conference program committees. He currently chairs the IEEE A. Grove Technical Field Award committee and is vice-chair of the Technical Field Awards council. Dr. Stork received the Ingenieur degree in electrical engineering from Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, and holds a PhD in EE from Stanford University.
