Technische Universität Dresden

The IFTE Institute represents the technical university in the project. The institute research is focussed in the area of electronic design. It concentrated on various aspects of electronic systems design and electronic design automation (EDA).

Topics cover design, de-sign methodologies and design automation of microelectronic systems with a high placement and routing density requiring particular consideration of the electrical, thermal, and reliability constraints.

One topic of the research is the development of methods for the 3D-integration and the co-design of IC and Package.


We develop medical devices and offer services that facilitate the most modern medical therapies and diagnoses.

In our market segment we are the number One choice for physicians, companies and employees.

With our work and our solutions, we improve the life quality of people all round the world.


Philips Electronics Nederland BV

Philips Healthcare

Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) is a leading health technology company focused on improving people’s health and well-being, and enabling better outcomes across the health continuum – from healthy living and prevention, to diagnosis, treat-ment and home care.

Philips leverages advanced technology and deep clinical and consumer insights to deliver integrated solutions. Headquartered in the Netherlands, the company is a leader in diagnostic imaging, image-guided therapy, patient monitoring and health informatics, as well as in consumer health and home care.

Reden BV

Reden (Research Development the Netherlands) is an engineering company that excels in simulation-driven product development and the development of design functions (f.e. cost function), supporting clients in achieving a breakthrough in their product development.

Based on simulation models product developers obtain better understanding of the relation between product design and performance. Knowledge Rules Models lead us, in addition to understanding the functioning of the product, to new knowledge rules or design functions (a knowledge rule says something about the relationship between design parameters and performance). In organizations a multiplicity of knowledge rules exists (ranging from tables, formulas, facts of experience, etc.). For engineers it is necessary to secure the knowledge in a usable form.

Reden has developed a virtual engineer for that called RevesDSE!

Salvia BioElectronics BV

Salvia develops a unique bioelectronic foil that is placed seamlessly below the skin to stimulate proven neural targets for the treatment of chronic migraine (15+ headache days each month).

This patent-pending neurostimulation concept is designed for optimal safety and effectiveness and opens the market for this long-awaited headache treatment.
