Scientists at Fraunhofer IISB have developed a novel packaging concept and technologies by embedding power semiconductor devices into ceramic circuit carriers. Their design offers high temperature stability, operation at high voltages, and hermetic sealing to provide maximum lifetime in harsh environments. This helps to fully exploit the great advantages of wide-bandgap semiconductors (WBG). Power modules based on this new approach are presented by Fraunhofer IISB at this year’s PCIM Europe exhibition in May 2019 in Nuremberg.
Ongoing miniaturization, 3D integration, and extreme environmental conditions impose major challenges to future power devices, modules, and systems, which are...12.04.2019 | Read more
The Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) will present their research on additive manufacturing methods for complex concrete components at the Hannover Messe 2019. These methods could be used to produce tailor-made components for sewage systems quickly and economically in the future. Prototypes of various 3D printed components will be on display for those attending the trade fair.
Traditionally, concrete component manufacturing is arduous and design possibilities are limited by the formwork. Should infrastructural elements require...01.04.2019 | Read more
From 1-5 April 2019, the world’s leading industrial show, the Hannover Trade Fair, presents key technologies and core areas of industry ranging from R&D up to services. The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE exhibits its innovations in the area of hydrogen at the joint booth Hydrogen + Fuel Cells Europe (Hall 27, Booth C58). The booth is celebrating its 25th jubilee with a record participation of 170 exhibitors from 20 countries over a total area of 5000 m².

Under their topic for this year’s trade fair ‘We Add Safety to Additive Manufacturing’, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) will be presenting a patented measuring device for high temperature laser profilometry.
The new measuring method enables the use of laser scanning technology with temperatures of up to 1700 degrees Celsius for the first time. Consequently, the...29.03.2019 | Read more
At the Hannover Messe from April 1 to 5, Fraunhofer FOKUS and the German Edge Cloud will show a real-time and data sovereign VR control of an industrial robot based on an Edge-based 5G core network in hall 11 booth E06.
3.1 million* industrial robots are expected to be in use in factories worldwide next year. Their networking, control and maintenance present the industry with...28.03.2019 | Read more
From April 1st to 5th, the Oldenburg based branch of Fraunhofer IDMT will be attending Hannover Messe to present a speech-to-text process documentation system to be used in industrial settings (Hall 2, Booth C22). The system allows users to efficiently capture various kinds of information with the help of automatic speech recognition, leading to significant time and cost savings. It uses intelligent speech-to-text technology to provide a convenient, hands-free user interface, which works reliably also in noisy and rough environments, and which does not have to have access to a server or the Internet.

In recent years, the demands placed on component-integrated electronics have risen so sharply in many industries that they can often no longer be met with conventional electronic components. As an alternative, printed electronics is on the advance. At the Hanover Fair from April 1 to 5, 2019, experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, Germany, will be demonstrating the role lasers play in this process. Highlights include the directly printed strain gauge sensor, the locally gold-plated contacts and the electrically conductive glass fiber fabric.
Fraunhofer ILT's Thin Film Processing group specializes in the post-treatment of coatings using lasers: One of its focal points is the laser-based treatment of...27.03.2019 | Read more
DFKI, together with partners Airbus Operations, Broetje Automation, EngRoTec, and The Captury, demonstrates at Hannover Messe (Hall 2, C59) how humans and robots jointly master manufacturing tasks. In the hybrid production scenario for aircraft construction, the robots perform jobs that are non-ergonomic, repetitive, or physically strenuous for people, for example, the seating and sealing of rivets in an aircraft body or the assembly of the cable channels in the wings. The demonstrator represents the results of Project "Hybr-iT – Hybrid and intelligent human-robot collaboration," which was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
In mixed teams, the robots "organize around the humans," achieving the freedoMam and flexibility to complete their production schedule. Humans perform tasks...26.03.2019 | Read more
A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter
A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
