We also use our research results for the development of RFID sensor transponder ICs and ASICs, which can be used to achieve battery-free digital sensors. Such sensors can then be supplied with energy and read out via the NFC functionality of smartphones, for example. Typical applications are digital rapid tests or maintenance-free sensors in industrial environments. Our ICs differ from other solutions through effective power management functionalities and integrated sensor interfaces.

Eric Schäfer and his team research Integrated sensor systems, especially CMOS-based biosensors, ULP sensor systems and AI-based design and test automation. The results are being incorporated into research on the lead applications Sensor systems for in-vitro diagnostics and RFID sensor technology. It will assist you with services for the development of Integrated circuits and with IC design methods.
We are researching the use of ultra-low power embedded memories in wireless sensor front-end ICs for monitoring the condition of wind turbines and individual plants produced in greenhouses.
IMMS is working on autonomous modular sensor systems for cost-effective options for data collection in agriculture.
