We present our IMS newsletter.

In this newsletter (issue 2, 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:

PRONTO – Intelligent solutions for micro systems
PRONTO is the name of the open source production platform for micro systems in Baden-Württemberg. The platform was created within the Spitzenclusters MicroTEC Südwest whose successful project balance sheet was presented during the MST Kongress in Karlsruhe. This platform is now open for interested users.

X-MIND – extremely miniaturized optical speed sensor
Cooperating with Hahn-Schickard Institut in Stuttgart, IMS CHIPS is developing a cost-efficient optical speed sensor with minimal measurements. Its absolute angle resolution of 10 bit and low measurements offer a variety of cost-efficient applications.

Silicon photonics – new technological development launched at IMS CHIPS
Silicon photonics offer tremendous opportunities in optical data transmission and integrated sensor technology. Cooperating with Universität Stuttgart and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) the first optical chips based on the CMOS and MEMS technologies by IMS CHIPS have successfully been manufactured.

Micro system technology – a „Wunderland“
Interactively playing, experiencing and understanding micro system technology The ever increasing industrial demand for technical specialists has inspired the MST Wunderland project in order to raise the curiosity and interest among youngsters into technology and science and motivate them for studies at university or a vocational training in that field. Micro system technology is to be tangible for children and teenagers.
