  • To reinforce the position of Europe’s semiconductor and electronics industry within global competition, eleven institutes within the Fraunhofer Group for Microelectronics have, together with two institutes within the Leibniz Association, come up with a concept for a cross-location research factory for microelectronics and nanoelectronics. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is providing support with the necessary investment. On April 6, 2017, Education Minister Professor Johanna Wanka handed over the grant approvals – 280 million euros for Fraunhofer and 70 million euros for Leibniz.

    At this year’s COMPAMED trade fair, the sensor manufacturer Sensirion and Fraunhofer EMFT will be presenting an innovative concept study in the field of medical technology. Fraunhofer EMFT’s silicon micropump has been combined with Sensirion’s LD20 single-use liquid flow sensor as part of a joint project with the aim of developing a smart and cost-efficient miniaturized module for controlled and monitored drug delivery. This highly integrated single-use drug delivery module measures a mere 35 x 15 x 5 mm3. Both partners will be at COMPAMED 2016 to showcase live demonstrations for interested visitors for the first time.

    Self-sufficient Degasser for Micro Dosing Processes

    31.10.2016

    Gases dissolved in liquids can cause serious problems in chemical or biotechnological processes. The degassers available for tackling this challenge today are bulky and expensive, and can in most cases only be used in laboratories with special infrastructure at their disposal. The scientists at Fraunhofer EMFT have developed a small, self-sufficient degasser for micro dosing processes, with an integrated micropump for creating the vacuum, which is necessary for the degassing process.

    Smart Packaging is the current trend – providing not only pure visual effects but rather additional useful information to customers. By order of the the world’s second largest brewer SABMiller, Scientists of Fraunhofer EMFT have developed an interactive temperature sensor and display system, integrated into a portable ice box and showing whether the beer has the optimal drinking temperature.

  • Solvay, Texas Instruments, Muegge and Fraunhofer EMFT aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the semiconductor industry. For this purpose they will be testing alternative fluorine gas mixtures to be used in the cleaning processes. This three-year project, called ecoFluor, is partly funded by the German Federal Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF) and will start on 1st January 2016.

    Just in time for the COMPAMED trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, the scientists at Fraunhofer EMFT have implemented a powerful, extremely miniaturized micropump. The tiny pump made of silicon measures mere 5x5x0,6 mm3 and shall in the future enable low-cost disposables for medical technology, for example.

  • Today’s light sources are typically characterized as rigid and relatively small. Thanks to continuing advances in the development of light-emitting diodes (LEDs), lighting no longer needs to be tethered to lamps or fixtures. Formed in September 2011, the i-Tex (intelligent and luminous textiles) project team aims at developing flexible and large-scale textile- and LED-based lighting that offers designers and architects new opportunities. Think of a self-illuminating ceiling, an illuminating pillar, or event tents with integrated lighting.

    At the COMPAMED trade fair, researchers of Fraunhofer EMFT will present a concept for an implantable micropump system for permanent regulation of the intraocular pressure. This approach shall enable the first effective longterm therapy for diseases of the eye, such as glaucoma or opthalmophthisis.

  • The theme of the Trillion Sensors (TSensors) Summit was inspired by “Abundance” defined as a world without hunger, a clean environment and energy and medical care to all, to be enabled in one generation through technological innovations by so called exponential technologies producing goods and services faster than global demand. All this requires networked sensors, capable of collecting data and exchanging information.
