Applications IC design and ASICs
The business unit ASICs of Fraunhofer IMS offers application- and customer-specific solutions for challenging demands including the areas of medical technology, automotive and industry. We offer ASIC and IC design solutions and search for the optimal manufacture process for the target application together with our customers.
ASICs for inductive sensor technology
Key areas for applications of our IC and ASIC solution are in sensor technology, for example inductive sensors for absolute or incremental position sensors for detection of location or change in position (linear) and angle or angle changes (rotating) for commutation of electro motors in electrical propulsion systems.
RF circuits (RFICs) for transponder applications
Through the possibility of application or customer-specific solutions, we can offer our customers applications that are not possible with commercially available RFID standard products. Our transponder ICs (RFIDs) with embedded sensor technology can be found in medical implants or in logistic processes with high demands on reliability, security and read range.
Tamper-proof identification and hardware-based key memory
For the clear marking of products and traceability of logistic processes we implement our circuit components that allow for a distinct and tamper-proof identification.
Functional security (according to SIL or ASIL)
Not only in the area of autonomous systems the “functional security” is playing an important role in increasingly complex electronic systems. Fraunhofer IMS takes the requirements of functional security of its customers into account in its certified development processes and supports its customers in the realization of the norms according to IEC EN 61508 or ISO 26262, for example in automotive applications.
