Dramatically reducing the risk of stroke with neuromorphic hardware #

Communication Systems / Smart Sensing and Electronics / Engineering of Adaptive Systems 6.5.2021

The team from Fraunhofer IIS and FAU with its “Lo3-ML” (Low-power low-memory low-cost ECG signal analysis using ML algorithms) project triumphed as one of the four winning teams in the “energy-efficient AI system” pilot innovation competition.

Computer architecture inspired by the human brain – to most people, this sounds rather abstract and removed from everyday life. Far from it: a research team from Fraunhofer IIS and Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) has developed neuromorphic hardware capable of detecting early signs of atrial fibrillation and considerably reducing the risk of stroke. In other words, this application has an entirely practical place in everyday life.

Dr. André Lange (l.) and his team help customers evaluate the reliability and robustness of electronic components.

As electronic systems grow more autonomous and find increasingly widespread use in fields where safety is paramount, their reliability and durability are more important than ever. Research by Dr. André Lange and his team explores how aging processes in circuits can be accurately predicted.

Modular sensor technology for SMES#

The Internet of Things (IoT) presents small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with almost insurmountable hurdles – and widens the digital divide between them and large corporations. This is set to change in the future thanks to a sensor platform that will allow smaller companies to occupy market niches in the IoT sector and to hold their own against international competitors.

Improved 3D chips for ultra HD cameras#

Engineering of Adaptive Systems / 8.3.2017

Camera resolution is constantly improving. Meanwhile, users expect hardware components to become smaller and smaller. This is particularly true of ultra HD cameras, which capture four times as many pixels as their full HD counterparts. Researchersat the Engineering of Adaptive Systems (EAS) division in Dresden have developed a compact and energy-saving solution to process the huge volumes of data this entails.
