Welcome to the web site of the Laboratory for Power Management and Integrated Switch-Mode Power Supplies (SMPS). We are a research and educational lab with general focus on modern power electronics. Our programs, incorporate research related to SMPS converter topologies and systems, digital control, and mixed-signal IC design for power electronics. The applications range from miniature power supply systems for portable electronics and medical applications to power electronics for vehicles. Our unique program combines power electronics and control with traditionally strong research in mixed-signal IC design at the University of Toronto, one of the World's best engineering schools.

Our main goals are:

  • To create and disseminate new knowledge through research and training of future industry and academic leaders.
  • To solve "real life" problems through collaborative research with industry and other research institutions.
  • To maintain this research program highly attractive to the world's best students.

Please be free to explore our web site and find more about our people, program and the exciting research areas we are exploring.

History and Research Support

We were formed in June 2004, as an addition to the Energy System Group of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto. The work of our laboratory is mostly supported by industry partners, National science and Engineering Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Canadian Microelectronics Corporation (CMC).
