We at Fraunhofer IISB have also driven progress in automotive applications by substantially increasing the power density and efficiency of our power electronics.

How this is affecting aerospace applications and whether we might all soon be flying electric is discussed by our colleague Florian Hilpert in the latest #Innovationskunst podcast.

Florian Hilpert heads the Aerospace Electronics group at IISB, and has been focusing on the latest power electronics developments since 2017, transferring them to ambitious aviation applications.
