We were surprised to hear the news that Jeff Shepard has joined the team at EE World online, as a contributing writer focusing on power electronics technical content for EE World’s Power Electronic Tips site.

As the founder of The Darnell Group and Darnell Research, Inc., Jeff has extensive experience writing about power electronics, having launched the PowerPulse website in 1999, the first daily news website for the global power electronics engineering community. Additionally, he published The PowerPulseDaily newsletter, which covered the latest technology and industry developments in all aspects of power semiconductors and power electronics.

“Jeff is a highly recognized and respected industry source on power electronics technology,” commented Aimee Kalnoskas, Senior Editor, EE World. “He joins the ranks of other experienced EE World authors including Executive Editor, Lee Teschler, Senior Editor, Martin Rowe and contributing writer Bill Schweber, to develop content creation for our audience of electronics design engineers challenged with keeping pace with increasingly complicated power technologies.”

We understand Jeff’s move relates to the news of PowerPulse having been sold to another publisher, and we will let you have more information when it is announced publicly.

We wish Jeff the best of luck in his new role and look forward to reading some of his content on the website in the near future.
