For the 15th time, the coveted industry accolades recognised the most innovative development achievements in the traditional categories hardware, software and tools. For the first time this year, prizes were also awarded in the new categories embedded vision and start-ups.

Ultrahaptics wins in the category hardware with its ultra-haptic module “STRATOS Inspire”
The STRATOS Inspire enables users to feel haptic sensations in mid-air with their bare hands, without the need to wear or hold anything. This new sleek self-contained module is designed to be quickly and easily added to existing displays or integrated into VR and AR location-based experiences. (

Hitex GmbH impresses with AURIXTM SafeTpack in the software category
The AURIXTM SafeTpack is a complete safety management solution for the second generation of Infineon’s AURIX safety microcontrollers. With its advanced features for connectivity, security and functional safety, the AURIX microcontroller family is ideally suited to a wide field of automotive and industrial safety applications. (

GÖPEL electronic GmbH wins with ChipVORX SI in the tools category To reduce the effort required for design validation and production testing for modern complex assemblies with high densities, ChipVORX-SI (Synthetic Instruments) was developed as an innovative technology for the automated use of existing FPGA as design-integrated test centres. It uses the native capabilities of the FPGA to configure so-called embedded instruments and to execute various test functions. (

Basler AG awarded first prize in the new category “Embedded Vision” with its dart BCON for MIPI Development Kit
Basler’s new Embedded Vision Kit includes the first camera module making use of the Image Signal Processor of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoC under Linux. This innovative product concept significantly reduces the overall processor load of the system and thus frees more computing power for the actual application. ( 

Wisebatt wins in the new category “Startup” with its simulation tool to optimise electronic designs
Wisebatt is a unique simulation tool for electronics engineers developing IoT devices. They can build virtual prototypes and collaborate to make the optimal choice between cost, battery life and performance, very early in the design cycle. Within a short time, hardware engineers access complex modelling results. (
