Field of Work
The research interests of Prof. Kallfass and his team are focused on integrated semiconductor circuits and systems for power electronics and high-frequency electronics. Voltage transformers based on modern semiconductor technologies are now being used in applications for electric drives, power supply units and converters for renewable energies. Another of the institute’s research focus areas is the development of radio communication systems with high data rates for the access range with broadband internet. Broadband transmitters and receivers in the millimeter wave frequency range are developed at the Institute of Robust Power Semiconductor Systems for this purpose.
Prof. Ingmar Kallfass, born in 1973, studied electrical engineering at the University of Stuttgart before going on to gain his doctorate at the University of Ulm in the field of transistor modeling and circuit design in 2006. In 2005 he took up a position at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics (IAF) in Freiburg, additionally taking on a shared professorship at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) from 2009 onwards. In 2013, the University of Stuttgart appointed him director of the Institute of Robust Power Semiconductor Systems, a newly founded facility forming part of the Robert Bosch Center for Power Electronics.
