APEC 2022

TI Live! at APEC 2022

Welcome to our Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) 2022 experience.

Whether you’re attending the show in Houston or following it virtually, we can help you overcome some of your most critical power-management design challenges, such as increasing power density; reducing electromagnetic interference (EMI), noise and quiescent current (IQ); and extending reliability. Watch demo videos on solutions to help power your next design and learn more about the products and content that we're featuring at the show.

If you’re attending in person, we invite you to:

  • Join industry and technical sessions hosted by our power experts on trending topics such as gallium nitride (GaN) and isolation.
  • Visit us in booth No. 514. There, we’ll demonstrate system-level solutions that are pushing power further and have experts available to chat about how we can help you innovate your power designs – from speeding EV charging to engineering a smarter grid.

Speaking sessions during APEC
