Microsystems technology

Ever smaller, ever smarter

Microsystems engineering and microelectronics make it possible to integrate a host of intelligent functions in systems that are becoming ever-smaller. These are xploited in increasingly sophisticated applications, in the production as well as in technologies involving energy, environmental science, communication, safety and healthcare. Smart system integration benefits from new
materials and production techniques of thin film technology when it comes to producing lighter and highly-flexible circuit carriers and biocompatible encapsulations.

From idea to product

The NMI develops, manufactures and tests specific microsystems for application in life sciences and industrial sensors. We cover the entire value chain - from conception to simulation and standardized production of small series in our cleanrooms. Our scientists have developed planar and 3D micro electrodes, chemosensors and components for in vitro electrophysiology, intelligent implants and
neuroprostheses.
