Energy efficiency and eco-friendly hardware design plays a key role in the development and creation of modern electronic systems. For years, Fraunhofer IZM has been a leader in the development of embedded systems and autonomous sensor nodes for applications in energy technology, industry and infrastructure monitoring. Energy efficiency is a central requirement element here.
The knowledge gained in the process of achieving optimum performance with minimum energy requirements is now needed for the design of the hardware infrastructure required to keep digitalization of our industry and economy going. Sensors, gateways, radio stations, repeaters and servers are often in operation 24/7, and now contribute significantly to Germany's total electrical energy requirements.
The R3S department at Fraunhofer IZM is a reliable partner for designing optimum energy management solutions for highly miniaturized sensor systems and minimizing their power hunger. From system characterization to energy-efficient hardware designs and energy-optimized firmware designs, our clients benefit from having us as their go-to source for years of experience and expertise in the field. The IZM team can model and parameterize the entire energy conversion chain from the source to processing and intermediate storage or variable load management.
Fraunhofer IZM is part of the »Green ICT @ FMD« competence center. Together with the project partners, we are evaluating sustainability aspects of electronic products and ICT infrastructures in the BMBF-funded project. https://greenict.de/en/
