Objectives

The main objective of STATIC is to develop state-of-the-art application-specific power ICs (ASPICs) for telecommunications and automotive applications. In particular, Alcatel SESA is developing two power-integrated circuits (PIC 1 and 2) to be used in DC/DC converters at the primary and secondary sides of high-voltage telephone lines. In the automotive area, BMW is designing two demonstrators that will be particularly demanding in terms of temperature of operation, noise signal isolation and voltage range.

To achieve the above objective:

A full characterisation of the circuit demonstrators will be carried out, including reliability and user qualification tests. It is also planned to show the system (DC/DC convertor improvements as a direct result of both PIC1 and PIC2 demonstrators, by comparing results obtained in STATIC with an existing reference system.
