  • Fraunhofer IIS develops integrated, low-cost color sensor for controlling LED lighting

    Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen, Germany have developed a color sensor with an integrated on-chip filter for controlling color and brightness fluctuations that can occur with LEDs. Nano-structured metal layers for spectral filtering, combined with an underlying layer of photodiodes, can be utilized in a feedback loop to control colors, thus ena-bling defined color perception. The low-cost CMOS (complementary metal ox-ide semiconductor) process used to manufacture the color and multispectral sensors promises broad utility. Researchers will be presenting a prototype at the SENSOR + TEST trade fair in Nürnberg from June 3 to 5, 2014 (hall 12, exhib-it booth 12-537).

  • Deepening and extending strategic cooperation between Bilkent University and Fraunhofer IIS

    Professors from Bilkent University and scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS are co-hosting a symposium on a wide range of current research topics in the fields of communications technology, image processing and medical engineering. The aim of the Bilkent-Fraunhofer IIS symposium is to further develop the collaborative relationship that has already existed for several years and to work together in common fields of research through bilateral or EU projects.

  • Fraunhofer IIS launches “GOOSE” with the aim of developing a GNSS receiver with an open software interface

    Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is participating in the “GOOSE” project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The aim is to develop the first GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receiver with an open software interface. The project is headed up by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) with the involvement of navigation technology specialist navXperience GmbH, German manufacturer of GNSS technology, and the University of the German Federal Armed Forces in Munich (UniBW).

  • The Students from Slovak University of Technology Bratislava win EMEA Freescale Cup Challenge 2014

    Erlangen, Germany, April 30, 2014 – European Final Cup Challenge competition took place on the campus of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen (Germany). The student team FEI-minetors from Bratisvlava won the final round of the EMEA Freescale Cup Challenge 2014, hosted by the Fraunho-fer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen.

  • HE-AAC Test Suite Launched at NAB by Digital TV Labs and Fraunhofer IIS

    Las Vegas, USA, April, 2014 – Digital TV Labs and Fraunhofer IIS have joined forces to develop the world’s first MPEG-4 HE-AAC audio test suite for DVB receivers now available to broadcast device manufacturers.

  • Fraunhofer Demonstrates Consumer-Friendly 3D Soundbar Concept

    Fraunhofer IIS Features New Interactive Content on its 3D TV Audio System

    Las Vegas, USA, April 4, 2014 – At the 2014 NAB Show Fraunhofer IIS is demonstrating its new TV audio system’s interactivity by presenting excerpts from field tests at live broadcast events. Fraunhofer’s Interactive 3D Audio System for TV allows viewers to personalize sound broadcasts to suit their personal preference. With a click of the remote, viewers can boost otherwise hard-to-understand dialogue or create a “home team” mix of sports broadcasts.

  • Flexible battery management system and BlueTEG: Self-powered energy harvesting sensor wristband

  • Industry 4.0: Wireless Communication, Positioning and RFID Combined to Create Intelligent Forklift

    Forklifts that choose efficient routes, pallets that reliably arrive at the right place and in the right condition, products and machines that communicate among themselves – that is the vision behind Industry 4.0. Scientists at the Nuremberg branch of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS have moved closer to achieving that vision: By combining several positioning technologies and new communication technologies, they have created an intelligent forklift. HANNOVER MESSE (April 7 to 11, 2014) will see the forklift used to showcase technologies for Industry 4.0 at Booth D30/1 in the Wireless Pavilion in Hall 8.

  • Fraunhofer Cingo adds Surround Sound to LG U+ Mobile Video Services

    The Fraunhofer Cingo mobile audio suite is now available to subscribers of the LG U+ ‘U-HDTV’ smartphone service. Subscribers can enjoy movies with immersive surround sound anywhere and anytime on their mobile devices with any pair of stereo headphones.

  • New channel partner agreement focuses on 40nm and 28nm processes

    GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Fraunhofer IIS to Collaborate on EUROPRACTICE, Europe’s MPW Wafer Shuttle Program

    GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS today announced the extension of their long-term collaboration, focusing on 40nm and 28nm processes. GLOBALFOUNDRIES will also join the European Multi Product Wafer (MPW) Program EUROPRACTICE.
