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

The official groundbreaking ceremony for the "Electronic Based Systems Center" (EBS Center) construction project on the Inffeldgasse Campus at the TU Graz took place on January 24, 2019. The construction project, which will house the headquarters of Silicon Austria Labs, was formally launched with State Minister Barbara Eibinger-Miedl, TU Rector Harald Kainz and Hans-Peter Weiss, Managing Director of the Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft (BIG – the Austrian authority for publicly owned real estate) in attendance.

The BIG is constructing a research and development center with a total floor space of 4,600 square meters (49,500 sq. ft.) for sensor technology and microelectronics on behalf of the TU Graz with financial support from the Province of Styria and the EU. The investment volume amounts to a total of 15 million euros. The seven-story building is geared toward businesses and cooperative projects between science and industry and includes laboratories, workshops, offices and seminar rooms. Half of the space is reserved for university spin-offs and small/medium-sized microelectronics businesses, while the other half will be used by the faculty for electrical engineering and information technology...
