"eHarsh Seminar"

Fraunhofer Technology Platform for Electronics in harsh environment

Sensor systems are key elements for the detection of environmental properties and are used in the industrial sector, especially especially in the field of Industry 4.0, for the intelligent control of processes. Under harsh operating conditions such as high temperatures, high mechanical stress or aggressive environments, the use of standard electronics is almost impossible.

A consortium of eight Fraunhofer Institutes has joined forces under the leadership of the Fraunhofer IMS to pool their expertise. The participating institutes are known within the scientific community for their specific areas of focus, such as ceramic materials, assembly and fastening technology, high-temperature integrated circuits, sensors, material diagnostics, test methods, reliability analyses and modeling.

In the online "eHarsh Seminar", we present the current state of our research and development work in a combination of technical lectures and live demonstrations at eight Fraunhofer locations and offer you interesting insights into our laboratories. From sensor development and manufacturing technology to simulation and reliability testing, all relevant aspects of building high-temperature electronics and sensors will be covered.

Our technologies - Innovations for your products

Mixed Signal Design

Complex electronic functions are increasingly realized through the closely interlocked design of analog and digital circuits


In SoC design, complex systems with microcontroller, memory and extensive application-specific functions are developed

Integrated Sensors

Integrated sensors can be incorporated directly into a circuit design and enable miniaturized, efficient sensor systems

Neural Networks

Neural networks often allow highly efficient signal analysis directly at the location of the sensor system
