Safe design of persistent and reliable semiconductor components
A large part of automotive innovation is based on high-performance electronics. The components that are available for this today have been developed for consumer goods. They can only withstand the harsh operating conditions and environmental influences they are exposed to in cars to a limited extent.
Fraunhofer IIS/EAS is working on developing semiconductor components in such a way that they can be used in vehicle systems with long lifecycles and functions that are crucial to safety. The basis for this are predictive models for various aging and wear processes as well as software for the calculation of reliability.
