Sensor-readout at the highest level

Fraunhofer IMS developed highly-precise sensor-readout-ASICs for robust application. High-precision, robust and secure – regarding sensors, these characteristics seem to contradict. Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS in Duisburg has again performed an important step for the secure implementing of industry 4.0 and developed two sensor-ASIC series for capacitive and inductive sensor readout that do combine these attributes.

More safety through person recognition with the help of infrared technology

Whether in road traffic, at the airport, fighting fires or at major events – the classification and counting of persons in this area is of an immense importance and forms a basis for the safety of involved persons. Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS in Duisburg researches in the field of infrared sensors to find better solutions for person recognition – and enables a more reliable and faster count.
