Research in the field of microsystems technology is in the main focus of different departments of ISIT. For more than 25 years ISIT scientists are working on the development of micromechanical sensors and actuators, micro-optic, and components for radio-frequency applications (RF-MEMS). Their work in this area also includes integrating these components with microelectronics to create small-size systems of high functionality. The development of customized integration concepts, ranging from simple, cost-effective assembly in a common package to complete monolithic integration, represents the core of ISIT’s offerings in this area. The service approach enables ISIT to offer its customers all of these components as prototypes and also to manufacture them in series according to the customer’s specific needs, utilizing the quality and capacity of the institute’s in-house semiconductor and MEMS production line. The services provided also include application-specific microsystem packaging at wafer level, including thin wafer and vertical feedtrough capabilities.
ISIT is focused with its applications on three core areas: physikal sensors, RF-MEMS devices and technologies as well as passive and active optical microsystems.
