Get to Know Us

PowerCare is an initiative by three Fraunhofer institutes to bring next generation vertical gallium nitride semiconductor technologies and their behavior models close to application. As such, a first of its kind intelligent power module is to be developed that can surveillance its condition and the behavior of connected loads. By employing AI models that are evaluated directly within the power module, anomalies and thus future failures are predicted in real-time.
The project is funded by the Fraunhofer Society as part of the PREPARE program and started mid-2023 with an duration of 3 years.

The Fraunhofer Society, based in Germany, is the world’s leading applied research organization. By prioritizing key technologies for the future and commercializing its findings in business and industry, it plays a major role in the innovation process. A trailblazer and trendsetter in innovative developments and research excellence, it is helping shape our society and our future. Founded in 1949, the Fraunhofer Society currently operates 76 institutes and research units throughout Germany. Around 30,800 employees, predominantly scientists and engineers, work with an annual research budget of roughly €3.0 billion, €2.6 billion of which is designated as contract research.
