Statement of the Conference Chair Prof. Dr. Herbert Reichl, Technical University and Fraunhofer IZM, Berlin
"Micro scale devices are today an indispensable part of many products, either high tech or consumer. Sensors and actuators are becoming integral to automotive, medical, telecom, photonic applications and even toys and throw-away products. Combining micro-devices and microelectronics (MICROSYSTEMS) in the form of heterosystem packages, new product visions can be realized at low cost and made available to all.
Miniaturized footprints allow these Microsystems to enter all areas of our everyday life and become indispensable assistants of the globally active individual to manage the professional and private life with optimum performance and comfort.
Packaging has been regarded often as a necessary -but non-value added- process. With Microsystems, packaging will bring in a paradigm shift. With sensors, generic MEMS devices and actuators combined with powerful electronics, a functional package will bring down the cost of the final system, increase its performance and provide an easy-to-use handling format. The full synergy of such a combination can only be achieved, if the packaging process becomes an integral part of the product design. Thus, this future level of hetero system integration will include new concepts, new materials, new processes, design suites, simulation tools and new technologies. Those are now under development and will guarantee, that the global community can benefit from existing and emerging Microsystem solutions."
