The research area of the institute covers the entire range of tasks of design and development in electromechanical and electronic systems. The institute researches effects and operating principles for the design and optimization of assemblies and devices. This includes modelling and simulation as well as design automation.


The institute is divided into the following six work groups:

Electronic Design Automation

Dr. A. Krinke


Design automation and computer-aided layout design, taking into consideration multi-criteria constraints: electromigration/current density, pin assignment, boundary conditions/constraints.
Chip-package co-design: 3D design and modelling, thermal design, layout design of interposer-based 3D systemss.


Design of Electronic Systems

Dr. F. Reifegerste


Design of innovative electronic assemblies and devices: interdisciplinary connections of electronics, constructions, optics, simulation and programming.
Design of LED-based spectral programmable lighting system: dimensioning of defined light spectra by model based optimization, design of spectral measuring systems for lighting quality criteria.
Study of electrical, optical and thermal properties of LED.


Electromechanical Systems

Dr. J. Schirmer


Brainstorming, variant development, calculation, design and optimization of electromechanical systems. Modelling, simulation, optimization and robust optimization in electromechanical design.
Conception, development and prototype construction of specialized 3D printer.
