October 2018 - March 2021
In this project, a platform concept for intelligent home automation components is developed, which can serve as a basis for next-generation sensors and actors. The main characteristic of this platform concept is ultra-low power consumption and ultra-low voltage operation. In combination with harvested energy from multiple sources (multi-energy harvesting), an extended lifetime and reduced battery cell requirements become possible compared to current systems.

This research project is based on an approach for the automated model generation for accelerated mixed-signal simulation of analog circuit models and the associated simulation methodology for a transient analysis. Studies have shown good results, which make a significant acceleration in the simulation of mixed analog/digital-systems.Up to now, the current approach is limited to piecewise-constant input stimuli. One of the fundamental goals of this project is an extension of the novel simulation methodology that enables additional input signal types.
