Micro Systems & Smart Devices

Workshops on Design, Fabrication
& Upscaling in the Micro Assembly Domain

  • Tuesday April 11th, 12.00 – 18.00 hrs
  • Philips Innovation Services, Greenhouse Europe
  • Kastanjelaan 400, Microlab Eindhoven




12.00: Registration and standing lunch

13.00: KEYNOTE

Trends in Micro Systems Technology on the Research Level,
in Fabrication and Application

Micro Systems Technology (MST) aims on the miniaturization of engineering systems
to accommodate design specifications of small space, light-weight and enhanced
portability and function. Traditionally, the efficiency in MST processes is due to the
definition of patterns in a masking layer and the subsequent parallel transfer (batch
fabrication) of these accurate patterns into a functional material using lithographic
techniques. However, MST discovers many new materials and is reshaped by
prototyping methods instead of focusing on high-volume production. Hence, we will
review the recent Trends in Micro Systems Technology on the Research Level, in
Fabrication and in Applications.

13.30: Micro-Assembly Process Development and Production,
an Introduction to the Philips innovation Services’ Greenhouse Facility

Philips Innovation Services’ Greenhouse facility is a low to medium volume production
location for micro-assembly technology and high-end PCB assembly. Building on over
30 years of experience within Philips we provide prototyping, process development and
volume production services to our customers.
