Vrijdag VISdag : Microsystems, miniaturized electronics (COHESI) - June 29th
The demand for micro-systems typically often occurs when electronics for a specific application needs to be miniaturized, and the traditional solution, the printed circuit board, is no longer possible. COHESI, a collaboration between IMEC, VUB, UGent and KU Leuven, provides support to SMEs for the development of microsystems, by offering knowledge, laboratories and production possibilities.
For micro-systems, all components should be realized on one chip. Also, sensors and actuators are integrated directly in silicon. Think of a chip to measure and wirelessly transmit the tire pressure, an implantable hearing aid or a micro-gyroscope for orientation determination of smartphones. IMEC provides explanations and other applications.
