Fields of Activity

Our scientists at the division have many years of experience in these fields, enabling them to offer customers comprehensive assistance. This assistance ranges from issue analysis and consulting to the design of system concepts and the development of complete system solutions. Our customers profit from our outstanding know-how in the field of design automation for electronic systems. Using this knowledge in numerous projects, we successfully adapted it to other areas of application such as automation and communicatoin technology.

By applying knowledge and innovative solutions, we aim at achieving a faster, more efficient and last but not least a more cost saving design of products. One goal of particular importance is a high design quality despite ever more complex systems. Thus, we take account of the growing requirements concerning reliability and robustness of systems.

Fraunhofer IIS/EAS develops customer-oriented solutions and advises customers in the following fields of activity:

Today's electronic systems often consist of complex hardware and software components that have to function reliably for many years and without visibly breaking down. Mastering these challenges calls for new design methods and extensive tool support for designers of electronics. The scientists at the EAS Division are therefore working on these services.

In many respects, electronics should work particularly sustainable and economical. Its increasing miniaturization, new manufacturing technologies and more and more functions condensed into a tiny space pose a particular challenge when it comes to design and performance. On one hand, our work therefore aims to counter the continual downsizing of semiconductor devices using new design concepts. Another focus is on new technologies based on the "More than Moore" approach.

In the future, adaptive systems will increasingly help us solve complex problems. Fraunhofer IIS/EAS develops solutions that allow these diverse quantities of data to be processed highly efficiently and through self-learning as well as to be interpreted.
