Devices - New Ideas, More Power
In the field of ‘Devices’ we develop innovative device solutions with a strong focus on power electronics. This includes novel device concepts both on semiconducting materials like silicon and silicon carbide and on related materials providing a “technology-push” towards new and more powerful applications.
We cover activities from monolithic integration of electron devices, development and integration of passives, including new dielectric materials and especially capacitors, as well as new power semiconductor devices. Our power electronic devices and circuits are implemented in power grid applications, in automotive electronics such as electric mobility, and furthermore in the fields of biotechnology and medicine. Additionally – and to meet rising requirements – we pay special attention to research and development on high temperature electronics and sensors suitable for particularly demanding environments.
