We present our IMS newsletter.

In this newsletter (issue 1, 2015) 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:

Jewell James Ebers Award – International top award goes to first European since 1983
After 31 years the renowned J. J. Ebers Award is once more given to a European. Professor Joachim N. Burghartz was awarded this honor during the opening ceremony of the internationally acclaimed microelectronic conference IEDM in San Francisco in December 15th, 2014.

FlexPacFAM – Flexible, circuit board-based packaging using Film Assisted Molding
Microchips are generally fitted into plastic housings in large numbers by specialized packagers. The recently finalized FlexPacFAM project researched alternative circuit board-based packaging solutions and developed, among else, a QFN housing-compatible package that can also be produced in small series.

TENECOR – Telemetric multi modal neonatal cortex monitoring
In cooperation with mfd Diagnostics GmbH, the Universitätsklinik at the Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität in Mainz and Fraunhofer ITWM, IMS CHIPS is researching a novel wireless monitoring system for premature infants. This is to significantly improve the monitoring of brain functions and maturing process of extremely premature infants. At the same time, wireless intensive care monitoring will be less strainful for patients, relatives and personnel.

Laser direct writer has been launched
A laser direct writer by Heidelberg Instruments Mikrotechnik was launched at IMS late last year. The equipment financed by EFRE funds and Ministerium für Finanzen und Wirtschaft Baden-Württemberg enables a mask-free generation of micro structures.
