Sensor Systems

Sensory organs of digital life

In the Sensor Systems research division, the team uses the basis of state-of-the-art technologies to work on different sensors that collect information from the environment, inspired by all five senses. From the multitude of sensors, it is important to find the optimum combination in order to use it, with the help of intelligent algorithms and recent developments, to expand the heterogeneous integration of smart sensor systems for various applications.

RF Systems

Enable wireless connectivity

In the RF Systems (RF – Radio Frequency) research division, everything is part of innovative solutions for wireless communication and radar technologies that cover the complete radio-frequency spectrum – from the MHz range to the very high GHz range. In the wireless sensor networks area of research, there are strong ties with the Sensor Systems division.

Power Electronics

Convert energy efficiently

In the Power Electronics research division, new, more-powerful solutions are researched for all types of electric energy transformers in all power classes, from the system and control design, through to switching structures and to integration methods and construction elements in new technologies.


Combine diverse technologies

System Integration consists of architecture definition, modeling, integration and validation of different hardware and software components to form a superior overall system with increased functionality and performance. When integrating systems, it is a matter of optimizing security, coexistence, interoperability, power consumption, electromagnetic compatibility, compactness and costs.

News | Innovation

On April 23rd, Dr. Gernot Hueber, Head of Re­search Unit RF (= Radio Frequency) at Silicon Austria Labs (SAL), gave a lively talk on tech­nical inno­va­tions for beyond 5G wire­less commu­ni­ca­tion networks in Vienna.  On this occasion, he delivered expert insights in SAL's innovation approach in the field of mmWave & Radio Frequency.

Re­search projects at SAL in the mm-Wave/​​RF domain are targe­ting tech­nical inno­va­tion for beyond 5G future wire­less commu­ni­ca­tions networks. The re­search team, headed by Gernot Hueber, deve­lops specific back­haul/​​front­haul appli­ca­tion and devices opera­ting in the 300 GHz frequency bands. Bitrates excee­ding 100 Gb/​​s, cost-effi­ci­ency, high spec­trum and power effi­ci­ency are the main features of the next gene­ra­tion RF front-ends. These features will be enabled by the key tech­no­lo­gies, which are deve­l­oped in SAL re­search projects.
