Digitization in medical engineering: Fraunhofer IIS at MEDICA 2017

At MEDICA 2017 the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS is presenting the MCube microscope system for the automatic pre-analysis of malaria pathogens, as well as optical 3D techniques for improved orientation in endoscopic views and the CardioSHIRT with integrated multichannel ECG.

iStix®- A cost-effective scanning solution for microscopy

To generate high resolution panoramas of microscope images, it is often necessary to employ expensive slide scanners. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has developed iStix®: A scanning solution that combines image processing software and a camera to enable areal scans with your own microscope.

Human perception goes digital at the Campus of the Senses in Erlangen

Future multisensory digital systems will have the ability to understand and simulate human sensory perception. The aim of the Campus of the Senses in Erlangen is to conduct fundamental research into the digitalization of human sensory experiences and to derive new technologies and services from this knowledge. The Campus of the Senses is a joint initiative of the Fraunhofer Institutes IIS and IVV in cooperation with Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU).


Fraunhofer IIS Joins GLOBALFOUNDRIES FDXcelerator™ Program to Enable Dynamic Biasing IPs

Erlangen, Germany: The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, a leading applied research and development center for ASIC, system-on-chip (SoC), and IP, today announced that it will offer dynamic biasing IPs for advanced SoC designs in GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 22FDX® technology. This new capability offers dynamic adaption of block level performance versus power consumption ratio to customize and optimize SoC and ASIC designs.
