Fields of Research
The research activities of the institute are organized in three areas:
- The group working on continuous system design methods is called Systems Engineering and is managed by Prof. K. D. Müller-Glaser.
- Prof. J. Becker represents the area of Embedded Electronic Systems with focus on System-on-Chip integration, architecture design and application specific EDA methods.
- Under the direction of Prof. W. Stork the design of microelectronics are extended into the field of microsystem design by the Microsystem Technology and Optics group.
In addition, an external research group practices the technology transfer by several projects in cooperation with the industry. This group (initialised by Prof. K. D. Müller-Glaser) forms the research department Embedded Systems and Sensors Engineering (ESS) of the Research Center for Information Technologies (FZI) at the KIT.
