Ceetron and Fraunhofer SCAI sign contract

28.01.2009
Ceetron and the Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI today announce the signature of a software agreement between the organizations.

The contract gives Fraunhofer SCAI access to use all of Ceetrons software tools for 3D visualization with new versions of CAE software from Fraunhofer SCAI.

As part of the agreement, Ceetron GmbH will develop a new on-line visualization component (MpCCI Visualizer) for the application MpCCI. MpCCI is the leading and open interface to couple different simulation codes for multi-disciplinary applications (www.mpcci.de).

The first software release from Fraunhofer SCAI that includes Ceetron technology will be MpCCI 3.1 - scheduled for release in January 2009. The MpCCI Visualizer that will be part of this release is currently under development by Ceetron GmbH on specifications from Fraunhofer SCAI. An important part of the development project is to include features for online monitoring of coupled analyses - for this part of the project, software developers from Fraunhofer SCAI and Ceetron GmbH will be cooperating closely.

Klaus Wolf, head of the Multiphysics-Application group at SCAI, says: "The cooperation with Ceetron provides Fraunhofer SCAI with an enhanced visualization tool. By integrating this customized tool into the MpCCI environment Fraunhofer SCAI can invest more effort into the core development of MpCCI itself. Fraunhofer SCAI will also use the GLview API to develop new pre- and post-processing software. These tools will offer advanced solutions for multi-physics data mapping, optimization in manufacturing process chains, and sensitivity analysis of input/output correlations in CAE."

"I am very satisfied and proud that we have reached an agreement with Fraunhofer SCAI, and I am convinced that the Ceetron technology will enable Fraunhofer SCAI to implement state-of-the-art visualization solutions for their CAE applications. The agreement with Fraunhofer SCAI will further strengthen Ceetrons position as a leading provider of 3D Visualization solutions to the CAE market worldwide. We see this as starting-point for a long lasting cooperation between the two organizations", says Ceetrons CEO Dr. Tor Helge Hansen.

Im Focus: The fastest light-driven current source

Controlling electronic current is essential to modern electronics, as data and signals are transferred by streams of electrons which are controlled at high speed. Demands on transmission speeds are also increasing as technology develops. Scientists from the Chair of Laser Physics and the Chair of Applied Physics at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have succeeded in switching on a current with a desired direction in graphene using a single laser pulse within a femtosecond ¬¬ – a femtosecond corresponds to the millionth part of a billionth of a second. This is more than a thousand times faster compared to the most efficient transistors today.

Graphene is up to the job

Im Focus: LaserTAB: More efficient and precise contacts thanks to human-robot collaboration

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.

Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
