Summary Sentence: Georgia Tech Proposes to launch an Industry Consortium to address challenges in the emerging automotive electronics such as autonomous driving, all-electric cars, high power and high-temperature electronics.

Full Summary: Georgia Tech proposes to extend its current industry consortium in digital, photonic, RF, and power electronics to include the emerging automotive electronics such as autonomous driving, all-electric cars, high-power and high-temperature electronics involving many inter-disciplinary Georgia Tech Faculty in four strategic areas that include:1.    Communication Electronics2.    Sensors and MEMS Electronics3.    High-temperature Electronics4.    High-power Electronics

Georgia Tech PRC currently has a large industry consortium involving about 50 global supply chain manufacturing and user companies from the U.S., Europe, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Its current focus is in digital, RF, Power and Photonics – all enabled by its leading-edge research in 11 core areas that include: 1) electrical, mechanical and thermal design, 2) nano and micro materials, 3) devices, 4) electronic substrates, 5) photonic substrates, 6) high-temp electronics, 7) power electronics, 8) sensing electronics, 9) RF and mm-wave electronics, 10) EMI design and materials, and 11) interconnections and assembly.

Georgia Tech automotive industry partners include BMW, GM and Ford, to date. Additional R&D collaborations are underway with Mercedes Benz, Ferrari, Honda, and Toyota in many areas that include hybrid vehicle R&D, internal component design, communication-vehicle interactions, automated driving, driver-assist, human-robot interactions and in environmental impacts.

Current automotive-related faculty expertise at Georgia Tech include:

  • Advanced MEMS and Sensors for Automotive Systems – Prof. Oliver Brand and Prof. Klaus Wolter
  • Sensor Arrays for Media Sensing – Prof. Peter Hesketh
  • Meta Materials for Advanced Vibration Sensing – Prof. Michael Leamy
  • Reliability, Prognostic and Condition Monitoring – Prof. Suresh Sitaraman and Prof. Maryam Saeedifard
  • WBG Power Devices and Modules – Prof. Depak Divan and Prof. Russ Dupuis
  • High-temperature Drivers – Prof. John Cressler
  • Electrical Design –Prof. Madhavan Swaminathan
  • Thermal Management – Prof. Yogendra Joshi and Prof. Samuel Graham
  • High-temperature Molding Materials – Prof. CP Wong
  • High-bandwidth Photonics – Prof. GK Chang
  • Glass-based Digital Packages – Dr. Venky Sundaram
  • RF and Power components and modules – Dr. Raj Pulugurtha
  • Cu Interconnections Without Solders – Dr. Vanessa Smet
  • Integrated Systems – Prof. Rao Tummala

The intent of the workshop is to share proposed R&D projects and get feedback from companies interested in joining the consortium.
