PhD on Mixed Signal IC Verification

The goal of this PhD activity is to develop and investigate new methods and concepts for verification of Mixed-Signal Smart Power ICs for various automotive applications, like lighting, heating, power distribution, motor driving etc. Short time to market requirements, increasing complexity, miniaturisation of modern ICs and latest safety standards result in stringent requirements and considerable effort for the pre-silicon verification process. To satisfy these needs Infineon Technologies Austria together with KAI and the Vienna University of Technology will set up a research project on new methods and concepts for IC verification.

Thomas Reinbacher receives "Scholarship of Excellence" for his PhD thesis

Thomas Reinbacher got his doctoral degree awarded "sub auspiciis praesidentis" in March 2014. The title of his thesis (supervised by Andreas Steininger) is "Analysis of Embedded Real-Time Systems at Runtime". Part of the work was done by him at NASA Ames Research Center. Recently, Thomas Reinbacher got the Scholarship of Excellence (Exzellenzstipendium) awarded from TU Vienna, which is specifically devoted to supporting "sub auspiciis preasidentis" graduates. He will use the award to strengthen his relation to the Chinese academia, industry, and culture in general, with the vision of intensifying the scientific collaboration between our countries, especially in his field.

Jürgen Maier's diploma thesis selected for talk at Epilog

The diploma thesis "Online Test Vector Insertion - A Concurrent Built-In Self-Testing (CBIST) Approach for Asynchronous Logic" by Jürgen Maier (supervisor Andreas Steininger) has been ranked by a jury among the top 4 diploma thesis that have been completed at of your faculty during the last 6 months.
