Speakers’ Bio

Christophe Basso is a Business Development Manager at Future Electronics in Toulouse, France. Previously, at ON Semiconductor, he led an application team dedicated to developing new offline PWM controller’s specifications. He has originated numerous integrated circuits among which the NCP120X series has set new standards for low standby power converters.

Christophe has three books for control “Designing Control Loops for Linear and Switching Power Supplies: a Tutorial Guide”, “Linear Circuits Transfer Functions: An Introduction to Fast Analytical Techniques” and “Transfer Function of Switching Conveters”. He holds 25 patents on power conversion and regularly teaches in IEEE-sponsored conferences like APEC in the US.

Christophe has over 20 years of power supply industry experience. Prior to joining Future Electronics in 2021, Christophe was a Technical Fellow at On Semiconductor and an application engineer at Motorola Semiconductor in Toulouse. Before 1997, he worked at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble, France, for 10 years. He holds a BSEE equivalent from the Montpellier University (France) and a MSEE from the Institut National Polytechnique of Toulouse (France). He is an IEEE Senior member.

General Fusion – Canada’s Unique Approach to Abundant Clean Energy through Nuclear Fusion @ Virtual Webinar
Jun 16 @ 12:00 – 13:30

This webinar will introduce the technology and development plans of Canada’s General Fusion Inc., which is pursing power generation through nuclear fusion.  Hosted by the IEEE OS Afficinity Group – Life Members.

Register for the event at:

General Fusion ( is a Burnaby, British Columbia company that has embraced a novel approach to producing nuclear fusion energy through Magnetized Target Fusion (MTF). MTF avoids the need for expensive high-power lasers or large superconducting magnets. Promising results to date place General Fusion on track to commercialize its technology later this decade, leading to the deployment of fusion energy power plants. The company plans to enter global energy markets in the 2030s at a price competitive with fossil fuels. 

Also underway in the UK is the Fusion Demonstration Plant (FDP) which has been designed to demonstrate General Fusion’s MTF technology, creating fusion conditions in a power-plant-relevant environment. With support from investors across the globe, the FDP will become the world’s largest and most capable prototype for a Magnetized Target Fusion power plant – a prototype intended to demonstrate a massive step forward in practical fusion energy.
