Voices from industry and academia

Lutz Langelueddecke, Melexis

”IMMS modelled and verified a mixed-signal IC with a controller for Melexis. The work was of assistance in the manufacture of a monolithic Slave-IC to drive LIN RGB light emitting diodes, which give cost savings in the ambient lighting for vehicle interiors.

The Institute’s highly competent staff supported us in the creation of testbenches for top level verification. We were able to benefit directly from the experience gained by IMMS from the ‘Thermulab’ project and made use of the knowledge acquired on mixed-signal simulation of embedded software.

The Institute used modern mixed-signal behaviour description language for the modelling, which will enable us to transfer the results from the mixed-signal ICs in question across to future developments, improving design efficiency.

The IMMS staff came and worked as colleagues in the Melexis project team, responding to any changes with great flexibility. Their high technical competence confirmed once more how well and enjoyably we have been able to collaborate with IMMS over recent years. We will welcome the opportunity of further joint projects.“
