Spotlight on our strategic research areas
From precision manufacturing and renewable energies to digitalization technologies, we provide the expertise, technologies, processes, and services that can add a decisive advantage to all our industrial partners.

Digitalization

Digital technologies are growing at an unprecedented pace, fed by a web of interconnected devices (the Internet of Things) and smart machinery (Industry 4.0). They are rapidly forcing every business sector to reinvent itself—from energy to precision agriculture, to personalized health and manufacturing.

 

Precision manufacturing

Precision manufacturing technology has captured the imagination of every industry segment—from aerospace to watchmaking. Our innovation in manufacturing techniques such as 3D printing, combined with our commitment to industry 4.0, is a step toward maintaining Europe’s flexible and competitive precision manufacturing industry.

 

The future of Energy

As energy evolves to meet the ever-expanding needs of the 21st century, CSEM is at the forefront of technological and digital developments across the fields of renewable energies and energy management services. We are using advanced technologies to help our customers thrive throughout this smarter landscape, optimizing renewable energies and their integration, storage, monitoring, control, and maintenance.

Girard-Perregaux
CSEM's technological contribution complements the technical watchmaking expertise and experience of Girard-Perregaux.
Our company, a brand of the Sowind Group, is developing—together with CSEM—a new escapement device for mechanical watches. Etched out of a single piece of silicon in their clean room, the key component of this tiny device delivers minute increments of energy, driving a timepiece with unparalleled precision. CSEM's technological contribution complements the technical watchmaking expertise and experience of Girard-Perregaux.

BASF
CSEM's R&D activities in the area of surface engineering are currently expanding and complement nicely BASF's existing competences in this field.
The collaboration between CSEM and the former Ciba legacy (now a part of BASF) in the area of nano- and microtechnology and printed organic electronics was important to building up new competences within the company. Such technology platforms are also of great importance to BASF. CSEM's R&D activities in the area of surface engineering are currently expanding and complement nicely BASF's existing competences in this field.

CSEM has a unique track record in the field of ultra-low-power systems, is familiar with existing IP portfolios, and has system-on-chip (SoC) expertise. You just cannot find that kind of know-how in large semiconductor manufacturing R&D departments.
CSEM's know-how in ultra-low-power design fits perfectly with our need to extend battery life: CSEM has a unique track record in the field of ultra-low-power systems, is familiar with existing IP portfolios, and has system-on-chip (SoC) expertise. You just cannot find that kind of know-how in large semiconductor manufacturing R&D departments.
