Silicon Austria Labs (SAL) is a European centre of excellence for electronics-based systems and is committed to interdisciplinary research of core technologies. At the interface of science and industry, SAL also relies on extensive cooperation with universities and research institutions at the three SAL locations Graz, Linz and Villach.
Safety and compatibility are two central pillars in the development of future-oriented products and processes and also the focal point of the new research facility. In the DES Lab (Dependable Embedded Systems Lab), the safety and dependability of modern computer-based systems are the focus of the scientists. In the EMCC Lab (EMCC and Radio InterOp Lab), researchers from the Graz University of Technology and SAL will work on the coexistence and compatibility of future electronic systems
"With the new cooperation model, SAL will be working with universities with focused resources on key topics for electronically based systems. Scientists from the University and SAL will work together to develop the basic principles that will later form the basis for new technologies and products on the world market in cooperation with industry and thus contribute to innovation leadership. In this way, we achieve a more direct transfer of scientific knowledge to the economy in our environment and thus create a lever for global competitiveness," states SAL managing director Werner Luschnig.
