PRYSTINE – Programmable Systems for Intelligence in Automobiles

On the 1st of May 2018 a new research and innovation project PRYSTINE started, co-funded by the ECSEL JU and the national governments of the ECSEL member states. The Institute for Electronics Engineering (LTE) at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is a member of this consortium, with the ambition to realize Fail-operational Urban Surround perceptION (FUSION) which is based on robust Radar and LiDAR sensor fusion and control functions in order to enable safe automated...

FFlexCom

In state of the art thin-film-transistors (TFTs), both source and drain electrodes are placed at the same side or interface of the semiconductor layer. Positioning the two contacts on opposite interfaces of the semiconductor in an Alternating Contact TFT (ACTFT) enables new degrees of freedom for device design, optimization, and operation. The ability to enable short channel lengths is explored for application in radio frequency (RF) circuitry in this project. Two research groups of FAU Erlangen...

HBS – Integrated Analog Image Processing Circuits for Heterogenous Image Systems

Systems for processing, generating, and transmitting digital images (image systems) often have hard constraints on compute performance, latency, throughput, and costs. Typical examples are medical image processing, computer games, or video compression on camcorders. In order to fulfill these constraints often dedicated hardware accelerators are used, as well as graphics processors (GPUs) or digital signal processors (DSPs). The resulting image systems are heterogeneous in two respects: First,...

fast – fast actuators, sensors & transceivers

Fast is a cluster-project in the context of the funding initiative „Zwanzig20 – Partnerschaft für Innovation“ of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. It aims to improve life quality with real-time ability. That means, in this context, that in the future electronic devices should work without any noticeable delays. The Friedrich-Alexander-University participates in the Project "Fast-ASIC". It deals with the developement of real-time capable integrated circuits that can be used...

DFG Research Unit MUSIK

The key constituents of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) are mechanically flexible devices on the micrometre scale, where the mechanical motions can be excited and detected by electrical signals. The DFG Research Unit MUSIK aims at including the basic functions of MEMS at high frequencies, such as amplifying, controlling, oscillating, and switching, into the design of complex radio frequency (RF) circuits. Through the combination of micro-electronic and micro-mechanic properties at device,...

Porofreq

Aufgabenstellung des Projektes Porofreq Im Rahmen des Projektes Porofreq wurde die Porosizierung von LTCC (Low Temperature Cofired Ceramics) erforscht, mit dem Ziel, eine Integration von 77 GHz Patchantennenarrays auf diesen porosizierten Flächen zu ermöglichen. Die nass-chemische Porosizierung löst dabei oberflächennahe Materialkomponenten aus der LTCC heraus. Dieses Einbringen von Hohlraum-strukturen verringert die effektive relative Permittivität der transversal inhomogenen Dielektrika, ...
