The future of electronics is smart. It will support users in even more areas of their life, while working in a highly sustainable and efficient manner in many respects. However, increasing miniaturization, (data) security requirements, new manufacturing technologies and ever more functions in the tightest of spaces present particular challenges as regards performance capability and the design process.
This is why a large part of our work involves coming up with new design concepts to meet the challenge of the constant miniaturization of semiconductor components and the growing complexity of integrated circuits. Our goal is to ensure the swift, resource-efficient, error-free, safe and secure development of electronic systems. Another focus of our work is on new “More than Moore” technologies, which make it possible to combine a wide variety of assemblies in a single component. One advantage of this is to facilitate higher performance coupled with more efficient use of energy. With our design know-how, we at Fraunhofer IIS/EAS also develop high-performance technical systems that master particularly complex tasks using innovative approaches.
