How do IZM developments contribute to improving medical care? Which technology literally saw the light and what else went on at Fraunhofer IZM last year? All this and much more in the current annual report!
For the past eight years the SMT Nürnberg has set the stage for the Future Packaging live production line, organized by Fraunhofer IZM. A row of individual machines and tools, that are needed for the manufacturing of an end product. The technical focus is on intelligent automation for eMobility and robotics. Another point of discussion will be the communication between individual machines.
Driven by the industrial partner URGO Recherche Innovation et Développement, seven partners have worked together within the H2020 EU-funded MEDILIGHT project to translate the technology behind light stimulation treatments delivered in hospitals into a smart wearable system for the personalized light treatment of chronic wounds.
The intention of the workshop is to provide a good understanding of the design rules and build-up options which are available in SMD embedding. Such embedded solutions can be realized with a reasonable budget for prototyping or small to medium-size production and are well accessible to small and medium-size companies by respectively equipped PCB manufacturers.
Fraunhofer IZM is in a criminal mood – as the setting for the Berlin version of Germany’s long-running crime drama series Tatort. The filming took place in early February and featured German actor Mark Waschke in his role as Detective Inspector Karow, and two members of the Institute in non-speaking parts.
Fraunhofer IZM among the Ansys Hall of Fame Finalists 2018
The IZM-researchers participated in the competition with a finite-element-based simulation method to predict the time to failure of wire bonds. This knowledge is used in the design of power electronics.
Organic Electronics – Cutting Edge Research from Saxony Goes Global
The international journey of the innovation cluster “Organic Electronics Saxony” (OES) is entering its next stage. Thirty partners from Germany and Japan have come together for two joint development projects, focusing on the development of stable OLEDs on flexible glass and printed 3D and organic electronics applications.
An international consortium of 17 enterprises is taking the revolution in production technology to the next level: Making the transition from fan-out wafer level packaging to fan-out panel level packaging.
