  • IC Design and Design Automation

    Fraunhofer IIS and RoodMicrotec Team up for Complete ASIC Solutions

    Fraunhofer IIS/Rida El Ali

    Erlangen, Zwolle, Nördlingen, December 12, 2014: RoodMicrotec and Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS have agreed to expand their existing cooperation. The aim is to offer their customers complete solutions from ASIC design to supply chain management.

  • Live images from inside materials

    Erlangen, Germany, December 2, 2014: X-rays are a tried and tested way to investigate components and materials. Researchers are now developing an X-ray detector capable of delivering particularly high-quality 3D images in real time. This will make it possible to precisely reconstruct even the processes going on inside materials and e.g. provide a reliable way of detecting minoscule faults.

  • Fraunhofer Cingo® Delivers Immersive Sound Experience on Samsung Gear VR

    Erlangen, Germany, November 17, 2014: Samsung Gear VR, the first Cingo-enabled device to deliver 3D spatial sound, creates the ultimate mobile virtual reality experience.

  • Fraunhofer’s Cingo mobile surround suite and the HE-AAC 5.1 audio codec to be integrated into KT Media Hub video on demand service “olleh tv mobile”

    Korea’s Leading Mobile TV Service Provider KT Media Hub Selects Fraunhofer Surround Sound for Mobile Video on Demand

    ERLANGEN, Germany (November 12, 2014) – KT Media Hub’s »olleh tv mobile« video on demand service will now feature superior audio from the world renowned audio experts at Fraunhofer IIS. With the integration of Cingo mobile surround sound technology and adoption of the HE-AAC audio codec, KT’s subscribers will experience unrivaled audio quality with their movies or TV programming while on the move or at home.

  • Endoscopy with panoramic view

    Whether physicians examine or operate on the bladder wall with an endoscope, they can catch a glimpse of only a miniscule section of the organ – their viewpoint is like that of someone looking through a keyhole. But soon, however, this perspective could be broadened to a panorama. ‘Endorama‘, a new software program, assembles this panorama from all the images acquired. Researchers from Fraunhofer IIS will present their research project at MEDICA, the medical device technology fair in Düsseldorf, from November 12th to 15th, 2014 (Hall 10, Booth G05).

  • Fraunhofer Technology Enables Efficient Networks in Vehicles for Data Rates up to 10 Gbit/s

    Erlangen/Munich, Germany, November 3, 2014 – electronica, Hall A, Booth 113: Scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen will present a new high-speed link at electronica in Munich from November 11 to 14. Using the 10+ Gbit/s physical layer for a simple twisted pair wireline data transmission, it is possible to transfer data at rates of 10 Gbit/s in real time. The layer is ideal for high-bit-rate data streaming used in driver assistance systems, for connecting mobile devices as well as for multimedia applications in vehicles.

  • Energy-saving WakeUp-Receiver for the “Internet of Things”

    Erlangen/Munich, Germany, November 3, 2014 – electronica, Hall A, Booth 113: The WakeUp-Receiver developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS can continuously operate and receive wireless signals for years on a µ-Watt power source. The device, which functions without a microcontroller, boasts a fast response time of 32 ms and is suitable for around-the-clock moni-toring of wireless sensor networks. Power can be supplied via energy harvest-ing technology.

  • Line Camera Makes Magnetic Field Lines Visible in 3D and Real Time

    Erlangen/Munich, Germany, November 3, 2014 – electronica, Hall A, Booth 113: Fraunhofer scientists have developed a high-resolution magnetic line camera to measure magnetic fields in real time. Field lines in magnetic systems such as generators or motors, which are invisible to the human eye, can be made visible using this camera. It is especially suitable for industrial applications, for exam-ple in quality assurance during the manufacture of magnets. A prototype will be on display for the first time at electronica 2014 in Munich from November 11–14 (Hall A4 / Booth 113).

  • Fraunhofer IIS at VISION trade fair to showcase powerful image processing platform and polarization camera for measuring stress in glass products

    Erlangen, October 21, 2014 – VISION booth 1G42: VISION is the world’s leading trade fair for image processing and will be held in Stuttgart November 4-6, 2014. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS will be showcasing two pioneering products there: the Vempire® embedded platform and the POLKA polarization camera. Both technologies are robust, capable and suited to a range of applications – meaning they can give companies in industry the critical competitive edge they need.

  • Novel Polarization Camera by Fraunhofer IIS for Glass Inspection at glasstec Trade Fair

    Fraunhofer IIS

    Erlangen, Germany, October 9, 2014 – glasstec booth 14/E39: Optische Prüfsysteme Dr. Günther and Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS present their glass bottle inspection system „BMF-5C Bottom and mouth rim inspection system“ at the glasstec fair from October 21–24 in Düsseldorf. A crucial component of the system is a development by Fraunhofer IIS in Erlangen – the polarization camera POLKA that measures glass stresses in bottles in real time.
