Microsystems technology can be found all over the world, from suppliers of car parts, information and communication, and medical technology sectors.
In fact, it is unknowingly taking over more sensitive tasks nowadays. Innovative microsystems technology work as invisible helpers in various areas of everyday lives.
How does It work?
Basically, microsystems technology develops whole systems on a micro-scale level which is in constant communication with the environment. Particularly, microsystems must be able to do important things such as feel, evaluate, and act.
Technology to Ensure Intelligence
Microsystems are a group of various materials, components, and technologies combined together in a particularly tiny area. Modern microsystems are defined to be more than the sum of their parts.
The integration of the individual components intelligently forms more and more complex systems to enable completely new functions. This leads to intelligent products that would make lives safer, simpler, and more comfortable.
Car microsystems technology is able to assist drivers to avoid obstacles independently. It can also make automatic emergency stops in situations that are critical. One example is the modern air-conditioning system that can register when people leave their homes and adjust accordingly.
Microsystems In The Future
In the future, microsystems will not only feel, evaluate, or act because they will also make decisions from foresight and be able to communicate with their surroundings. That said, they will have an auto diagnosis function and will operate autonomously, a characteristic that is similar to cognitive abilities.
This means that while classical microsystems only function to pre-programmed patterns, smart systems will show signs of being able to think, understand, and learn. One of the most important motivators of innovation in technology, making intelligent products possible. Thus, microsystems technology is progress with a system.
Research Collaborations in Europe
In order to face future challenges in microelectronics and nanoelectronics, research collaborations across the national borders are necessary. These are key factors to ensure international competitiveness by setting international standards.
These enable participants to become leaders in the relevant market segments. Thus, the semiconductor industry in Europe has been reinforced and expanded by the Federal Research Ministry.
Since microelectronics and nanoelectronics are main enabling technologies for the whole manufacturing industry, research a program has been launched by the Federal Research Ministry to encourage innovations and consolidate the technological leadership of Germany.
This is also intended to ensure the competitiveness of the country and make it a more attractive industrial option. The funding program for electronics research is intended for the following.
- Expansion of enabling technologies for chip manufacturing, including chip design, 3D integration and process technologies, lithography and research novel materials
- Facilitate the development of innovative mobility solutions by fortifying research on electronic components and systems for cars of the future
- The use of cutting-edge electronic components to develop new applications
- Promote new approaches to electronic systems, such as in the form of magnetic microsystems or organic electronics
The funding has been focused on the following fields of application, namely automotive engineering, energy, logistics, medicine, mechanical, and plant engineering.
