Sensors and sensor systems will play a central role in the changes in production processes (Industry 4.0, IoT-Internet of Things), the increasing demands in medical technology and the climate-driven change in energy and environmental technology. In the future, sensors will have to provide verified information as autarkic and completely digital as possible. SiCer technology as a combination of silicon technology and ceramic multilayer technology offers an outstanding opportunity for innovations in sensor technology as one of the central success factors in the IoT world. The aim of the HIPS (High Performance Sensors) growth core is the development and joint marketing of novel, robust, highly integrated sensors based on SiCer technology.
In the HIPS alliance, 13 regional companies, 7 research institutions and 4 associated partners from the Thuringian technology triangle Jena/Hermsdorf-Erfurt-Ilmenau are working together in 3 joint projects. In addition to the development of the technology platform in joint project 1, the use of SiCer technology for liquid sensors (joint project 2) and gas sensors (joint project 3) is being worked on. The CiS Research Institute contributes the know-how for silicon sensors to the development of the SiCer technology platform and coordinates joint project 3 for the development of SiCer gas sensors.
Dr. Olaf Brodersen heads the coordination office of the growth core HIPS and will present the work in the pitch session of InnoCON 2020 on 24 November 2020 from 3:00 PM.
The HIPS growth core is funded by the FMER within the framework of the Unternehmen Region programme.
