Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Rosenstiel

Former Scientific Director


His main fields of activity were hardware and software development for embedded systems. In his research and teaching, he was especially concerned with hardware/software co-design and verification, computer architectures, parallel processing and neural networks.

Wolfgang Rosenstiel joined the FZI in 1986 and was group leader in the field of "Automation of Circuit Design" for four years. After his call to the University of Tübingen in 1990, he continued to work tirelessly for the FZI as a scientific director. On August 19, 2020, Professor Wolfgang Rosenstiel died after a long illness at the age of 65. We are deeply saddened to say goodbye to a friend, supervisor and colleague who rendered outstanding services to the FZI for decades.
