More than 2,500 innovations were in the running for the exclusive „Product of the Year 2024“ award, chosen by the readers of the trade magazine „Elektronik“. From the many contenders for the prize, a novel impendance spectroscopy cable developed by Fraunhofer IZM was picked as the third product of the year, coming hot on the heels of innovations entered by Bosch and Infineon. The world’s tiniest system of its type will facilitate failure analytics in industrial machines and help diagnose medical conditions in patients. The readers awarded the groundbreaking technology with the coveted public choice prize in the Medical category. Basel Adams, research assistant and project leader at the Technical University of Berlin, attended the ceremony in Munich to accept the award on behalf of his colleagues.

We thank the readers of „Elektronik“ magazine and congratulate the team at Fraunhofer IZM, TU Berlin, and at our project partners Micro Systems Technologies (MST) and Sensry GmbH for their achievement!

The World’s Smallest Impedance Spectroscopy System in the Form of a Pill Finds Weak Spots in Machines and People

Imagine a scenario where you simply just throw in a pill to identify an error—this is now one step closer to reality thanks to the work done by researchers at Fraunhofer IZM in cooperation with Micro Systems Technologies (MST) and Sensry GmbH. As small as a piece of candy, the waterproof IoT sensor can reliably measure the properties of liquids even in hard-to-reach places. This can make the maintenance of industrial machines much easier and even help to identify diseases.
