Application Areas

Mobility

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.

Reference Projects

 

RESIST

Vehicle systems of all kinds are implemented today with the help of highly integrated semiconductors. The work within »RESIST« aimed to make optimal use of nanoelectronics as a key to further advances.

FLEUR

For small and medium-sized automotive suppliers, the industry’s stringent safety requirements represent a disproportionately higher cost compared to larger corporations. The goal of the FLEUR project is to compensate for the cost and risk borne by SMEs through efficient development methods.

MARS

The MARS project aimed to develop innovative technologies for ultra-low power and 3D integration, which are needed for tactile intelligent systems, e.g. in automotive applications.

ResCar

The objective of ResCar 2.0 was to develop a procedure by which the resilience and reliability of new electronic vehicle components can be taken into consideration already during the design phase.

MODELISAR

The project partners developed a new generation of design methods for the automotive industry.

 

ThermOBS

For self-driving vehicles, safe, effective, and reliable electronics are crucial. The aim of the “ThermOBS” project is to develop sensor and detection solutions that monitor the proper functioning of electronic systems and components.
