The article describes how the introduction of bricks (and subsequently fractional brick form-factors) contributed significantly to improvements in power density, and then discusses recent advances in power component packaging technology.

The article is a great overview of the development of power component packaging, as well as explaining why innovative thermally-efficient platforms such as the new ChiP package are so important to power system designers. Click here and go to page 33 to read the article today.
