Welcome to IPE
The Institute for Data Processing and Electronics (IPE) is specialized in the development of custom detector, trigger and data acquisition systems for high data rates and in control and monitor systems.
IPE´s competences cover the entire signal chain, starting with the physical sensor design, detector assembly through the analog and digital electronics to the data analysis and archiving.
In the Electronic Packaging Laboratory the production process is optimized and the detectors and electronic assemblies are cost-efficiently produced.
The research and development at IPE is embedded in the program structure of the Helmholtz Association.
About 70 People are employed at IPE. Besides there are about 12 PhD students, 20 students and 2 trainees.
Together with the Institute for Electrical Engineering (ETI) and the Light Technology Institute (LTI), we represent the KIT at the ECPE. We investigate technical solutions for applications in renewable energies and electric vehicles. We focus our activities in the fields of electro-chemical energy storage systems and power electronic packaging.
