At the technology brunch of the Association of the GeoInformation Industry Berlin/Brandenburg e. V. (GEOkomm e.V.) on May 6, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Dr. Klaus Ettrich, Business Unit Manager MEMS at CiS Research Institute will present “Customized MEMS sensor solutions for industry, medicine and agriculture” based on two development results.
Bolt monitoring: The monitoring of mechanical connections by means of sensors is gaining increasing importance, especially when taking into account the requirements from Industry 4.0. Silicon strain gages (Si strain gages) in particular are very well suited for measuring mechanical stresses on metallic test specimens such as bolts, pipes and flanges due to their compactness and high coupling factor.
Light incidence sensor: The direction of light incidence is relevant for numerous applications, e.g. for tracking solar systems or controlling greenhouses. In this project, a compact chip and the technology required for it were developed. This chip contains several monolithically integrated photodiodes, which enable the determination of the angle of incidence by different surface orientations. Compared to other approaches, the intended realization is characterized by extremely small size and easy integrability.
The technology brunch is an online event and is organized by GEOkomm e.V.. As a business association in Berlin-Brandenburg manages the association, research and industry networks, bundles competencies, potentials and organizes powerful associations for innovative products, research and services.
