Abstract:
Tyndall National Institute recently won a series of awards for its work in energy efficient nanoelectronics. The ENIAC Joint Undertaking announced that the overall winning project "Nanoelectronics for an Energy Efficient Electrical Car (E3Car)" received its 2011 Innovation Award, demonstrating 35% energy savings, lower costs, improved reliability and shorter time to market by introducing innovations at component and sub-system level, some of which are being adopted in real-life applications as early as in 2012.

Tyndall scoops multiple awards at the 2011 ENIAC Innovation Awards

The Tyndall research in the Energy Efficient Electrical Car project was led by Dr. Kafil M. Razeeb. "My team was involved in the development of novel electromagnetic field sensors to be used in power train monitoring of the next generation of energy efficient cars. This is the first silicon based sensor that requires only half the power consumption compared to the current state-of-the-art. Moreover it monitors the longest current range compared to any other silicon based sensors. This significantly simplifies the integration of sensors for car equipment OEMs" said Dr. Razeeb. Furthermore, the Tyndall team also involved in developing novel nanocomposite interface materials to enhance cooling performance and reducing system complexity through advanced packaging of the SiC devices produced in E3Car project.

Tyndall went on to win 2nd and 3rd place for posters describing their research projects at the ENIAC Innovation Awards Exhibition. eGo, a project that is developing a technology which allows touch activated secure, wireless communication between objects. This technology will ultimately lead to the possibility of eliminating the need for passwords, PIN numbers etc. for transactions because the eGo configured computer in the system will recognise the user as the owner of the account and will gve you access to it. Ego won second place and E3Car project won third place. Dr. Alan Mathewson, Head of the Heterogeneous System Integration group at Tyndall, said "We were delighted to be acknowledged for our work onthis project amongst the 60 other projects showcased at the Innovation Awards. My team are working together with Dr Kieran Delaney in CIT and some Irish SMEs such as Lincor and DECAWAVE to build prototype demonstration systems based on the eGo concept."

The ENIAC JU Innovation Award As the first projects supported by ENIAC JU grants enter the final phase, the efforts of the research consortia are coming to fruition and the impact of the results is becoming increasingly visible. The ENIAC JU is now in the position to recognise the projects that have contributed most to building an innovation-based future of growth and jobs in Europe. To this effect, ENIAC JU invited project coordinators to summarise their achievements and asked the National Funding Authorities and the ENIAC Operational Unit to vote in order to identify the project that generated the most innovative and impactful solutions. ENIAC member States participating: Austria; Belgium; Czech Republic; Finland; France; Germany; Ireland; Italy; The Netherlands; Norway; Spain
