Guiding principle of the application field
In everyday life, society will have to trust more and more electronic components. In this context, there is an increasing need for information security alongside resilience and the desire to effectively prevent dangerous failures. This concerns the confidentiality of sensitive data as well as protection against IP theft, malicious tampering or inferior plagiarism. However, trustworthy electronics also means the availability of supply chains or independence from only a few suppliers. The Fraunhofer IMS is therefore helping to shape European technological sovereignty in the field of electronics in the thematic area of "trustworthy electronics - TE". The aim is to provide industry with components that meet the highest safety and security requirements. These should effectively protect partners and customers from product piracy and manipulation attempts, as well as guarantee trustworthy supply chains and secure data transmission.
