The event Systems Integration organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network will take place January 16, 2018 and will address digitalization and its effects on the automation of the production and development of new micro-technical and MEMS components and products.
The Systems Integration 2018 takes place at the CSEM Center Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique in Alpnach, Switzerland.
CSEM is a Swiss privately owned non-profit R&D company specializing in micro- and nanotechnology, microelectronics, systems engineering, photovoltaics and communications technologies. With around 450 employees, a turnover of CHF 80 million is generated. CSEM is realizing the transfer of micro- and nanotechnologies to the industry in Switzerland, Europe and worldwide.
In the course of the focus on "digitalization", the experts will discuss in January how the addition of digital tools and concepts to traditional manufacturing processes will enable a more effective, time-saving and cost-effective production. Through automated production and quality control, defects can be avoided and customer satisfaction can be increased.
Within two conference sessions entitled “Industrial Automation” and “Innovative Production Processes” the status of the introduction of IT-supported solutions will be presented.
The experts refer to perspectives of their fields of practice and research, such as machine learning, robotics, electronics and digital manufacturing as well as on current questions like: Which hardware components are necessary and available? What software is available? How far should or can automation go? How can new production processes, e.g. the printing of electronic components on flexible substrates, be integrated into established processes? Which new products are possible by adding digital properties?
This is followed by discussions and a guided tour through the premises of the CSEM. The conference language is German.
Systems Integration is a series of conferences that the IVAM Microtechnology Network has been conducting regularly since 2008 with varying partners and varying topics in different European countries.
It offers manufacturers and users the opportunity to exchange ideas about intelligent applications of micro-technical solutions. The emphasis is on the integration of different processes and products into systems. The previous events took place in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Finland.

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
