In the field "Environmental Sensing" customized solutions which register ambient conditions are developed. Both chemical and physical active principles are used for detection and designed as sensor elements. The individual sensory elements are in turn assembled to complex systems which are used in application markets such as analytics, medical technology and industrial metrology. Here, miniaturized MEMS components are used which allow the design of small and low-power sensors.
Fraunhofer IPMS stands ready to provide the expertise and equipment necessary for microassembly and microsystems integration of small series. This includes implementing 2D and 3D structures using various joining methods such as the application of adhesives and other fluids or soldering and thermocompression bonding.
