Highlights

 

Faster recognition of susceptibility to corrosion

Fraunhofer IMWS researchers are working on a more efficient test method to predict the corrosion behaviour of electronic components.

 

New evaluation criteria for heavy wire bond contacts

Fraunhofer researchers define new evaluation criteria for bonding contacts in chips.

 

Modern glass with fingerprint

The Fraunhofer IMWS is working with partners on innovative markings for glass. The aim is to make the marking durable and easily visible.

 

Safe electronics for autonomous driving

Fraunhofer CAM has a leading role in its contribution to making vehicle electronics safe and long lasting.

 

New test methods for cover materials

How do defects form in thermoplastic cover materials and how does this impact on electronic components? A project at Fraunhofer IMWS wants answers.

 

Energy-saving chips of the future

Semiconductors based on gallium nitride convert electricity more efficiently than conventional chips made of silicon. The IMWS helps to make them market ready.

 

»Automated driving can save lives«

Autonomous driving offers enormous advantages for more safety in road traffic. Berthold Hellenthal of Audi explains why reliable electronic components are so...

 

Thin, thinner, ultrathin

Specimens examined in the electron microscope have to be particularly thin. A device has been developed at the Fraunhofer IMWS, which makes such samples quickly and precisely.

 

A TITAN for the smallest insights

The transmission electron microscope TITAN has very high imaging quality: It can even make individual atoms visible.

 

What does joint equipment development achieve?

The Fraunhofer IMWS also develops test equipment. Matthias Petzold explains advantages for clients.
