March 27, 2009

We present our IMS newsletter.

In this newsletter (issue 1, 2009) we would like to give you some highlights of our ongoing activities at the Institut fuer Mikroelektronik Stuttgart. The topics of the current issue are:

ProMikron – Three-dimensional reduction of chips and sensor elements
To open up new areas of application, industry and research establishments are jointly developing new process technologies for the three-dimensional reduction of chips and sensor elements. The project is funded to the amount of 8 million Euro by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Pilz PSENvip - Camera-based safety and measuring system
Using HDRC® technology by IMS CHIPS the Ostfildern-based Pilz GmbH & Co. KG has developed the new camera-based safety and measuring system PSENvip to monitor work processes on mechanical press brakes.

NIL Technology and IMS CHIPS cooperate
The nano imprint lithography realizes tiny nanometer structures using specially manufactured dies.
The leading European manufacturer for templates in nano imprint lithography, the Danish Copenhagen-based NIL Technology, and IMS CHIPS announced the start of their cooperation in the nano imprint template field during the NILCOM meeting in Schärding, Austria, on January 8th, 2009.

New clean room equipment for nano structuring
Accurate etching is an essential part of the production of microchips and nano structuring. PEGASUS and GIGASTEP offer enhanced possibilities to IMS CHIPS in terms of the precision of substrates as required for MEMS and nano technology applications.
