Speaker Introduction

Dr. Ronald Wong is the creator of the SIMPLIS simulation engine, which began as part of his Ph.D. research at Duke University.  He has been involved in the commercial development of SIMPLIS since 1991 when he became one of the founders of what would eventually become SIMPLIS Technologies.  

Matthew Fortin is a product developer at SIMPLIS Technologies. He has designed several popular tools to support the creation of SIMPLIS models for MOSFETs and nonlinear inductors and capacitors.  Before joining the SIMPLIS team he was an Applications Engineer at Intersil where he helped customers use SIMPLIS to examine the performance of Intersil power management ICs.

Dr. Andrija Stupar received his Ph.D. in Power Electronics from the University of Toronto. He is the lead developer in charge of our new Magnetics Design Module. He previously worked for Gecko Simulations.

Dr. Tom Wilson is president of SIMPLIS and has a master's degree in engineering and a doctorate in engineering from the University of California, Berkeley.  He has 30 years of practical experience in switching power supply design, manufacturing, and marketing. He is dedicated to using simulation to improve the power supply design and development process.
