GaN Power ICs - Components for more sustainable ICT power systems

Fraunhofer IAF – Many low-voltage power electronic applications are transitioning to gallium nitride-based devices, which can increase the system's energy efficiency and power density. Within the Green ICT @ FMD project, scientists at Fraunhofer IAF investigate how gallium nitride can be used for more sustainable and resource-efficient ICT power supply systems.

Signal processing on the edge – µController-based radar back-end structure 

Fraunhofer FHR – The FHR has developed a new back-end structure for its radar sensors, which can be switched off, extended, and reconfigured at runtime by their master/slave configuration. In addition, signal processing by interpolation has been adapted so that it can be performed directly "on the edge" on the µController.
