Digital radio makes spherics and crackling interference in radio broadcast a thing of the past. New technologies from Fraunhofer IIS make it possible for digital radio to replace analogue short and medium wave broadcasting around the world. Even local FM transmissions are being converted to digital. As a result, Digital radio listeners benefit from clear reception, a wider range of programming, and additional information via data services without having to pay for a costly Internet connection.more info
Erlangen/Munich, April 28, 2016 – Analytica, Hall A1, Booth 526: The SCube® is a fully automatic microscopic scanning system developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. Highlights of the system include its suitability for a wide range of analyses, support for both transmitted-light and fluorescence microscopy, attractive pricing and compact size. Because it features a modular design, it can be custom configured to meet individual user needs. Researchers are presenting the scanner at the Analytica trade fair from May 10-13, 2016 in Munich.more info

Erlangen/Hanover, March 15, 2016 – CeBIT, Hall 6, Booth B36: In the Internet of Things (IoT), objects and products communicate and link up independently and exchange important information. With MIOTY, the Fraunhofer Institute for In-tegrated Circuits IIS is presenting an intelligent platform for IoT applications at CeBIT 2016. Up to 100,000 sensors can connect to the platform at the same time and send and exchange information. Transmission from the sensor to the plat-form is by means of a patented and robust wireless protocol, which works even over large distances and guarantees reliable relaying of the sensor data. MIOTY can be used for IoT applications in digitized production and for long-distance querying of data in intelligent environments. Fraunhofer IIS also shows the practical use of intelligent wireless sensor networks for goods picking and in digital production, as well as in software-based energy management solutions with a special safety security.more info
Nuremberg, Germany, March 14, 2016: The threat of synthetic drugs is one of the most significant current drug problems worldwide. In the last few years, the figure for worldwide abuse of synthetic drugs keeps rising, which is also accompanied by a significant increase in production of Amphetamine Type Stimulants (ATS) in the EU. The MicroMole project, which will run for three years, tackles this problem by monitoring sewage systems.more info
Erlangen, Germany, March 10, 2016: A new generation of car radios is just around the corner. These devices receive information not by analog transmission, but digitally – for example, via the new standard, DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale). The advantages: increased sound quality, along with the ability to simultaneously transmit images and text information. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS are now offering device manufacturers a new software package with a decoder for DRM+, and in so doing have pushed digitization one step forward. DRM+ was developed for digital transmissions in the FM band and rounds out the DRM standard.more info
Erlangen/Barcelona, February 22, 2016 – Mobile World Congress, Hall 8.1, Booth 8.1I68: For healthy teeth, it is crucial to spend the right amount of time brushing and to brush with precision. The latest generation of electric toothbrushes supports users with applications on their smartphones. Based on the image analysis software SHORE™ developed by Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS as well as its localization technologies for position recognition, Procter & Gamble is now presenting a new smart tooth-brushing system at the Mobile World Congress. By telling users which area of teeth they are currently brushing, this system supports them in their daily dental hygiene as recommended by dentists.more info
Erlangen, Germany/Barcelona, Spain (February 22, 2016) – At Mobile World Congress 2016, Fraunhofer IIS presents an immersive audio technology solution for enhancing the audio on the innovative LG 360 VR. It comes with Fraunhofer Cingo, the leading immersive audio rendering solution for virtual reality.
