With our video series we want to give you insights into our competences, accompany our scientists and introduce you to our superwomen in science. Find out what motivates our employees and why they enjoy working at SAL, which innovative projects we are working on and how we want to unfold the future along the entire EBS value chain.


Superwomen in Science: Johanna Zikulnig

Johanna studied Biomedical Engineering and works on flexible sensors and printed electronics at SAL. She talks about the importance of sustainable electronics, her latest achievements and how she turns the challenges, that come with the job, into innovative technologies.

eSPML Lab works on paradigm shifting signal processing solutions

In the joint eSPML Lab, researchers from Silicon Austria Labs and Johannes Kepler University Linz work on signal processing and embedded Machine Learning.

mmW Lab works on 6G and autonomous driving

In the joint mmW Lab, researchers from Silicon Austria Labs and Johannes Kepler University work on millimeter wave technologies in high frequencies of 100 to 300 GHz. This enables technologies such as autonomous driving or high data communication.

Check out our High-Tech Cleanroom

What is a cleanroom and what is so special about ours? Mohssen Moridi, Head of Research Unit Microsystem Technologies, talks about our cleanroom facilities, what we work on and why these technologies are important for the future.

In our cleanroom, we work on projects for SAL as well as ASSIC Austrian Smart Systems Integration Research Center.

Silicon Alps meets Silicon Austria Labs

Eine Position als Geschäftsführer mitten in einer Zeit der Krise anzutreten, ist keine leichte Aufgabe. Ebenso sich als Spitzenforschungszentrum in Österreich international zu etablieren.

Wie DI Dr. Gerald Murauer seine bisherige Zeit als Geschäftsführer des Spitzenforschungszentrums Silicon Austria Labs gemeistert hat, in welchen Bereichen geforscht wird, was die Ziele für die nächsten Jahre sind und auch welche Synergien es hier mit dem Silicon Alps Cluster im Bereich der Electronic Based Systems gibt, erfahren Sie im Tabletalk „Silicon Alps meets Silicon Austria Labs“.

Power Electronics

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

Together with five key-players in the field of Power Electronics, our team is currently working on the project "Tiny Power Box", a bi-directional onboard-charger for electric cars.

This project is carried out together with Fronius International GmbH, Infineon Technologies Austria AG, AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik AG, TDK Electronics GmbH & Co OG and AVL List GmbH.

ASSIC Project - Fourier Transform Spectrometer

Within the COMET ASSIC program, we work on various projects with partners from industry and science. Amongst others, we created a fourier transform spectrometer for the near infra-red.

**This project was performed within the COMET Centre ASSIC Austrian Smart Systems Integration Research Center, which is funded by BMK, BMDW, and the Austrian provinces of Carinthia and Styria, within the framework of COMET - Competence Centres for Excellent Technologies. The COMET programme is run by FFG.

Superwomen in Science: Mirjana Videnovic-Misic

Mirjana Videnovic-Misic is a staff scientist in RF Systems, where she works on RF circuit design and mmWave . She is a researcher, a mother and one of our superwomen in science – and she has great advice for women who want to pursue a career in research.

SAL Linz: RF & Embedded AI

At SAL Linz, we work on Radio Frequency technologies and Embedded Artificial Intelligence. What makes this team unique is the diversity in terms of experience, nationality and gender. With creating new technologies, we tackle challenges such as global warming - and unfold a better future.

A Day with ... Alex Connaughton

Meet Alex Connaughton, our Power Electronics scientist of the rock world. He works on topics that shape humanity - always with a hint of that British humor. We accompanied him on a typical work day.
