Latest News

  • 11/2022 – We are excited to have completely moved to Franklin Antonio Hall, a fantastic new building designed for collaborative research, active learning, and technology transfer. You are welcome to visit us here on the second floor!
    • Stay tuned for our new photos and updates.
  • 10/2022 – Roger, Ratul, and Hieu are the leads on 3 papers accepted for lecture presentation at APEC 2023, on innovative power converter topologies, circuits, and control of 3 different hybrid converters.
    • Congratulations, Roger, Ratul, and Hieu! This is a significant contribution to a very good year for iPower3Es!
  • 10/2022 – Casey leads a large group of IC students at iPower3Es in a paper accepted to ISSCC 2023 on a first-ever heterogeneously integrated vertical power delivery architecture for high-performance computing.
    • This project is in close collaboration with Murata Silicon Capacitor group in France.
    • Big congratulations to the whole team for this remarkable (and to-be-very-influential) achievement!
  • 10/2022 – Casey has his own paper accepted to ISSCC 2023 on a novel Single-Inductor Multi-Stage (SIMS) converter. Congratulations, Casey! There cannot be a better achievement before graduation.
    • Casey sets an ISSCC record in the group that guarantees a big reward (by Prof. Le) for whoever can break it.
  • 09/2022 – Hai-Nam Vu joins the group for Ph.D. after his work at Mobility, Logistics & Automotive Technology Research Centre, Brussel, Belgium, and M.S. study at Soongsil University, South Korea. Welcome, Hai-Nam!

Welcome to iPower3Es

Research Mission

Our research mission is to address challenges in co-optimizing efficiency and size with performance in different electronic systems and applications, including:

  • High-performance computing and data centers
  • Mobile and automotive devices
  • Robots: futuristic ones
  • Communication systems
  • DC-houses and DC-buildings
  • Low-power biomedical implants
  • Internet of Things (IoTs)


We are always looking for good team members. Outstanding and self-motivated students interested in joining the iPower3Es group are recommended to contact Prof. Le directly.

Our team combines individuals who love what we are doing for future energy-efficient electronics systems. We strongly support diversity in our group, department, and school where creativity is fostered together with a strong work ethic. And also very importantly, we have fun.
