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.

The signing of the coop­er­a­tion agree­ment between Silicon Austria Labs GmbH (SAL), Infi­neon DICE GmbH & CoKG, and voestalpine Stahl GmbH launches the “Radar Tomog­raphy” project that pushes the use of radar sensor tech­nology in industry. This expands re­search in the field of high frequency re­search by new appli­ca­tions.

Linz, 16.07.2019 – It was offi­cially launched with the signing of the coop­er­a­tion agree­ment by SAL, Infi­neon DICE, and voestalpine on Tuesday, July 16, 2019, in the new LIT Open Inno­va­tion Center on the campus of Johannes Kepler Univer­sity (JKU) Linz, Austria. Not only does the project bank on the novel use of intel­li­gent radar sensor tech­nology for indus­trial appli­ca­tions, it also serves as a show­case for the increasing digi­tal­iza­tion of Austria’s industry with the help of collab­o­ra­tive, cutting-edge re­search.
