Application Areas


The application field "Mobility" is focused on a wide range of solutions for traffic systems of the future. Special attention is given to automobile manufacturing as a key German industry. However, our design methods are also used in aircraft construction and other fields of transportation in which topics such as the functional safety and reliability of electronic components play a major role. These methods improve the robustness of the components as well as the safety of all traffic participants. We also develop especially robust, multifunctional and application-optimized IC solutions with an emphasis on sensor applications for automobile electronics.
