Agenda Day 1

General session

9:00 am - 9:30 am Opening Keynote | 48V power supply systems in 2018 and emerging trends

9:30 am - 10:00 am Match and Win

Identify your group while at the same time getting to know many of your peers in a short amount of time.

10:00 am - 10:30 am Morning Coffee Break

10:30 am - 12:00 pm Panel Discussion | taking 48V going to the mass market

The 48V technology is ready for the mass consumer
market (and not only in the premium segment). Several
OEMs already succeeded in launching new models or are
about to do so. Yet, many challenges remain. In this panel
discussion, leading OEMs, Tier1s and other suppliers will
express their views on this matter.
Some of the topics discussed:
• Driving down cost with mass production
• Having a common standard for suppliers, as opposed
to adjusting to individual requirements
• Meeting current and future CO2 regulations

11:30 am - 12:00 pm News on standardization

12:00 pm - 12:30 pm New developments for 48V E-machines and serial production
