Institute for Applied Electronics (IAE)

The Research Institute for Applied Electronics (IAE) at the HTW Dresden was founded in October 2019. The aim of the institute is to bundle the know-how of the participating professors to work on research and development projects in the fields of analog, digital and power electronics, signal processing and embedded systems. The institute sees it as its task to support companies in the new and further development of their products and design methodologies as well as in error analysis.
