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



Automated welding processes play a major role in many shipyards, but they reach their limits when it comes to individual components or production deviations. Artificial intelligence is intended to optimize these processes.


A key technology for autonomous driving is radar sensor technology, which enables reliable monitoring of the vehicle’s surroundings even under very poor visibility conditions. ARAMID was intended to form the basis for the further development and broad application of radar sensors in cars.


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.


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.


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



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



Project partners are working on a concept for the design of trusted electronics in order to systematically identify potential security gaps and to put reliable mechanisms in place to protect electronic systems against attacks or IP theft.


The project partners researched new design methods for ensuring reliability during chip and electronics development.


The purpose of the IKEBA project was advancements in the efficient use of stored energy.
