Engineerig of Adaptive Systems


New dual leadership at the Dresden branch of Fraunhofer IIS

For thirteen years, Prof. Peter Schneider has been the head of the Engineering of Adaptive Systems EAS division, part of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. On January 1, 2024, he was joined by electrical engineer Dr. Wolfgang Felber.

Globalfoundries, Fraunhofer and Next Big Thing found start-up

Sensry enables small and medium-sized businesses to gain access to innovative semiconductor technologies based on GLOBALFOUNDRIES 22FDX technology. Thus it enables the problem-free use of trend-setting system architectures and manufacturing methods also for prototypes and small series in connection with most modern assembly and packaging technologies.


Trailblazer for Especially Robust Vehicle Electronics

The partners in the research project "RESIST" have spent the last three years working on new approaches to the development of resilient electronic systems. Their results contribute to the next generation of especially fail-safe vehicle electronics to meet the highest quality, safety and performance standards. The work therefore strengthens the competitiveness of German manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive and aviation sectors.


Reflex over Reaction

Over the last two years, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS and the semiconductor manufacturer GLOBALFOUNDRIES have worked together in the project »MARS« to advance the development of highly reliable 22 nm FDSOI components. These components should pave the way for »tactile intelligent systems« made in Dresden.


Comprehensive Lifetime Prediction for ICs

Fraunhofer IIS/EAS is offering advanced modeling services for device degradation effects in North America. Using these proprietary techniques, designers are now able to verify the long-term behavior of integrated circuits (ICs) and systems especially in safety critical applications. Compared to today’s solutions, the advanced models can be used in all common industrial design environments. In addition to standard degradation effects, Fraunhofer also takes into account more complex dependencies and recovery effects.
