News about the RISC-V processor AIRISC

The AIRISC enables efficient machine learning and AI in sensors, IoT devices and other embedded applications. The free RISC-V processor instruction set is ideally suited to implement custom extensions in a short time to provide optimal performance for specific applications. In combination with the AIfES software library developed by Fraunhofer IMS, the AIRISC processor family supports neural network inference and training directly on the embedded device.

North Rhine-Westphalia funds five projects of the Leading-Edge Cluster Industrial Innovations (SPIN) with over eight million euros

The Fit4eChange project makes distribution networks fit for the energy transition: The aim of the project is to continuously monitor energy flows and loads in low-voltage distribution networks, which are used very dynamically, in real time. Intelligent sensor systems are used to collect, collate and communicate relevant information. Only then will it be possible to control and optimally integrate generators and consumers in a way that serves the grid.

Highly sensitive image sensors with adapted microlens arrays

The performance of optical sensors depends strongly on the proportion of the light-sensitive area. Adapted microlens arrays can be used to target photons to the active areas of the sensor to significantly increase sensitivity. Adapted microlens arrays were selectively imaged onto SPAD-based sensors on 8" wafers and lead to an increase in sensitivity by a factor of 7.
