We present our IMS newsletter.

In this newsletter (issue 2, 2010) 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:

Landesforschungspreis awarded for ultra-thin chips – Prof. Dr. Burghartz receives the 100,000 Euros prize for applied research
This award recognizes the development of the Chipfilm™ technology and its practical application. The award ceremony took place at the “New Palace” in Stuttgart. The prize money will go to a new joint research project with the scientists of the Stuttgart-based Max-Planck-Institut on flexible organic electronics.

PRONTO microsystem production platform – Joint projects in miniaturization and flexible substrates are creating a new platform to network the production of micro systems
The microsystem production platform PRONTO plays an essential role within the recently launched excellence cluster “MicroTEC Südwest”. A total of 7 joint projects are currently designing, developing and testing new micro systems. This unique offer will support small and medium enterprises in particular to implement new and innovative ideas and enable a fast and cost-effective way from product ideas to a quality assured small series production.

Next generation of high dynamic image sensors – BMBF sponsored joint project HiDRaLoN
The next generation of high dynamic range image sensors is being developed by the HiDRaLoN consortium within the frame of the European CATRENE research program consisting of 16 project partners including research facilities and companies from Germany, France, the Netherlands, Israel and Hungary. The goals targeted through various approaches by the project are HDR image sensors with a HDTV resolution, high dynamic range, Global Shutter and low-noise.

ValMon self-monitoring valves – Solenoid valves are becoming intelligent by integrating microelectronics
ValMon deals with the ongoing monitoring of a solenoid valve by integrating high-tech electronics directly into the valve. In cooperation with a valve manufacturer, state-of-the-art self-monitoring solenoid valves are being developed for use in critical applications.
