Solid-State Electronics

We are a part of the incredibly exciting development of semiconductor electronics and our objective is to develop technical solutions from individual devices to small systems.

Everywhere in our existence, there is electronics, from controlling spacecraft to monitoring cell functions. The development in semiconductor electronics has been astonishingly fast, and yet we are only at the beginning. The predominant silicon technology has now come so far that it, too, is starting to reach its physical limits. We have, therefore, been exploring new frontiers with unconventional ideas and intelligent solutions in order to revolutionise electronics and make it our life companion in all aspects.

At the Solid-State Electronics Division, we are part of this incredibly exciting development. Our objective is to develop technical solutions from individual devices to small systems. We strive for innovations related to electronics for Life Science, Healthcare Technology and Next-Generation Computing. We also explore materials and component solutions towards a new computing paradigm wherein quantum and neuromorphic electronics play a crucial role.
