Autonomous driving, electromobility, artificial intelligence, smart X concepts, 5G for industrial applications: all of these technological leaps are based on semiconductor chips and a variety of other components. Dresden is Europe's microelectronics heart and a home to leading global know-how in the development and production of modern high-performance chip solutions. At the SEMICON Europa industry representatives from Silicon Saxony will be presenting new developments and advancements for a variety of applications and will be discussing current trends in microelectronics.

Innovative Silicon Saxony – Microelectronics from Dresden

Tuesday, 12 November 2019, 2:00 to 3:00 pm
Messe München, Hall B1, Conference Room B12

Participants in the discussion include:
  • Uwe Richter, Head of the Smart City Division in the Office for Economic Development for the City of Dresden
  • Prof. Thomas Mikolajick, Managing Director of the Nanoelectronic Materials Laboratory (NaMLab) of the TU Dresden, Head of the BMBF-Cluster "Cool Silicon" as well as Professor for Nanoelectronic Materials at the Institute of Semiconductor and Microsystems Engineering at the TU Dresden
  • tbd, First Sensor
  • Michael Kaiser, Managing Director Smart Systems Hub – Enabling Internet of Things
  • Dr. Ronny Timmreck, CEO Senorics GmbH

Technology highlights

The Nanoelectronic Materials Laboratory (NaMLab) of the TU Dresden has for the first time succeeded in detecting the negative capacitance in application-relevant ferroelectric materials. This discovery holds enormous potential for applications in energy-efficient electronics and energy storage, for example for novel energy-saving supertransistors.

The Smart Systems Hub – Enabling Internet of Things presents the latest IoT user activities in the context of hardware, software and 5G mobile technologies and presents solutions from Young Disruptors (IoT startups and growth companies) in SEMICON's TechARENA – Technological Platform for Innovation Europe.

This includes sensor sensor startup Senorics, which introduces a universal scanner technology for ingredients. The photodetector solution is based on organic sensors that use the help of light rays to analyze ingredients, for example in clothing, food or agricultural products.
