This CSEM program offers maximum flexibility, enabling us to react promptly and efficiently to new product developments thanks to our reliable, reproducible and qualified processes and our quality control lab operations. The optics-, nano-, mechanical, biological and electronics activities would not be possible without this technology. The Microsystems Technology activity is certified according to ISO 9001.
A strong and effective working relationship between academia and CSEM enables a well-defined strategy that follows new developments and selects the most promising ones for further development.
CSEM develops, produces and integrates custom or standard innovative micro-systems (sensors, actuators, etc.); exploiting its advanced technologies to provide new integrated solutions for industrial and institutional customers. Targeted markets and applications include automotive, telecommunications, security, healthcare, biotechnology and environmental.These are markets in which system miniaturization and integration is a "must".
There are two main global objectives of the Microsystems Technology or MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) program:
The market for small-volume production has been selected in close collaboration with regional industry, research organizations, universities and the political authorities. This is particularly due to the Lausanne-Neuchâtel region already being home to a substantial, successful MEMS cluster and to CSEM, which has a rich portfolio of MEMS solutions to offer.
Our activity in MEMS (including Optical MEMS, BioMEMS, PowerMEMS, RF-MEMS) is focused on the development, production and integration of custom or standard innovative microsystems:
