Technical systems with microelectronic components are becoming ever more complex. What’s more, the fact that these many different components are packed into the smallest possible spaces is progressively giving rise to undesirable physical effects that increasingly pose enormous challenges to designers. This level of complexity can only be mastered if these developments are taken into account during the earliest possible design phases.
Today’s and tomorow’s world needs intelligent sensor systems with signal processing, self-diagnosis resp. supervision and digital system interface. Fraunhofer IIS focuses on the design of CMOS-compatible sensor systems with integrated signal processing.
