Latest News

  • 02/2023 – We had very successful presentations, demos, great interactions with industry and academic communities, and overall a great time at ISSCC 2023. (See our photo page). Congratulations to the iPower3Es team!
  • 01/2023 – Happy New Year, everyone! May the new year bring a lot of health, joy, happiness, and success to you all. We look forward to a remarkable year of the iPower3Es group with a lot of new works and findings to be unveiled and to be made.
  • 12/2022 – iPower3Es group receives support from the PMIC center to develop a new integrated power converter on a GaN process. After a lot of effort, we are joining very few groups in the world working on integrated power converters on GaN. This is yet another new super exciting endeavor for our group!
  • 11/2022 – Casey and Ratul successfully delivered their Ph.D. defense talks, on track to become the first 2 Ph.D. graduates from the iPower3Es lab! Big Congrats, Dr. Hardy and Dr. Das!
    • Ratul sets a record for the number of paper publications (12 conference + 4 journal papers) while Casey sets a record of 3 ISSCC papers during Ph.D. in the group. Any current or future member of the group who can break the record in either integrated or discrete power electronics will receive a big award from the group and Prof. Le.
  • 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!

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.
