Development of periphery cell libraries in various submicron CMOS technologies

The R&D team of ams AG, a leading worldwide supplier of high performance sensor solutions, and ICENT run a joint project on the development of periphery cell libraries in various submicron CMOS technologies. The project was kicked-off in May 2019 and is intended to be the base for a strategic partnership.

Effective Robotic GriNDing of Surface Areas through HORSE framework - ENDORSE

In order to respond to an ongoing skilled labor shortages and demand for high quality products, EnAe has begun with the automation of grinding process, which is vital for surface preparation prior to the high-quality painting finish. Automation of this process has several benefits: i) consistent quality of the final product, ii) no human errors, iii) the wastage of material is reduced to minimum, and iv) the exposure of employees to dusty atmosphere is minimized.

A Network of Robotics DIHs for Agile Production – DIH²

DIH² is a network of 26 DIHs, with a target to reach over 170 DIHs. The sole aim of the network is to spark incremental (cut 50% cost of advance robotics solutions, double the growth of robotics market) and disruptive (maximum productivity & optimum agility) innovations in over 300,000 Manufacturing SMEs and Mid-Caps. It will support SMEs in their Agile Production challenge (50% increase in productivity) and unleash their digitalization potential by enabling robot solutions that are more cost effective at lower lot sizes.
