Vision

The inherent potential of semiconductor technology and devices and the requirements of a proliferating future information technology promise a further tremendous performance increase of electronic devices and systems over the next two decades. The utilization of upcoming gigascale integration, teraflop computing and terabit communication technologies in innovative electronic systems requires intensive research and also matching educational activities.

The need for advanced electronics forming the base of highly complex electronic systems remains evident in areas as in communication and computing networks, system miniaturization and ultrabroadband processing and communication. The dominant and growing position of electronic systems in the national and global economies as well as in the social infrastructure justifies an increased engagement in research, education and industrial collaboration.

Mission

The Electronics Laboratory aims to achieve excellence in innovative electronic device and system design and implementation. We will pursue this goal in research as well as in education by advancing progress in selected, strategic areas by:

Research

  • the exploration of new technologies and device options for electronic systems,
  • a well-balanced combination between exploratory and application oriented research, mainly in
    • ultra-high speed devices and systems
    • optoelectronics and photonics devices and circuits
    • high performance computing
    • advanced packaging
    • image and signal processing
  • designing and implementing of real-world demonstrators

Education

  • educating students in concepts, methods and tools in electronic design,
  • providing the opportunity for doctoral research projects,
  • teaming doctoral students of the Electronics Laboratory and partners from industry and research into joint projects,
  • providing technology transfer in industrial collaboration.
