A new generation of DC/DC converters

Fuel cells play a key role in the transition to renewables in power and mobility. But the energy efficiency of these cells poses a major challenge, particularly in automotive engineering. The individual components need to be as light and small as possible, yet attain a high efficiency factor. One such component is the DC/DC converter that modulates the fuel cell’s voltage to suit the drive and controls the flow of energy. Conventional wisdom held that it would be impossible to develop a smaller yet more efficient converter. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology IISB defied that convention, making the impossible possible by developing a new generation of DC/DC converters that meet precisely these requirements. This stride into the future has won the researchers the Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize.

The future of security force communication

Setting out to tackle real-world challenges in the fight against terrorism and crime, a team of researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems IVI in Dresden and police officers have developed a new, future-ready technology for sharing information and coordinating in the field. The developers’ efforts have earned them the 2020 Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize. The solution has since been adopted throughout Germany on the merits of its great practical benefit and acceptance on the part of users.

Tamper-proof satellite navigation

Police, customs, fire brigades, critical infrastructure – they all increasingly depend on satellite navigation. But satnav is easy to disrupt and manipulate. A research team from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has found a fix for this security predicament. Robust, trustworthy and tamper-proof, this solution won the team this year’s Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize.

Ultrashort pulse lasers for large components

A paradigm shift is underway in manufacturing. A research team with staff from the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen on its roster has broken new ground by using numerous laser beams as tools to structure surfaces. This accelerates the process and opens the door to new applications. The Stifterverband für Verbundforschung, a donors’ association for joint research, has seen fit to acknowledge the efforts of these researchers with its Science Prize.
