90 Cluster Report Optics and Photonics – Microelectronics and Microsystems Technology hardware and software for various measuring systems at its Berlin location. imc systems measure pressures, forces, speeds, vibrations, noises, temperatures, voltages, and currents. In addition to the automotive industry, imc also supplies train and aerospace manufacturers and suppliers. Raytek GmbH is a specialist for non-contact temperature measurement in industrial applications. As a member of the Fluke Group, the company develops, produces, and markets a wide range of infrared pyrometers for non-contact temperature measurement from – 40 up to 3,500 °C. The company offers measuring heads, thermometers, sensors, and line scanners as well as complete surveillance systems and thermal imaging cameras. Prignitz Mikrosystemtechnik GmbH, located in Wittenberge, is a specialist for pressure, temperature, and humidity sensors. It also offers special sensors for fill level measurement and chemical analysis. The production of highly sensitive sensor technology takes place in its own clean room. Founded in 2001, the company now has over 60 employees (2018), a large proportion of whom work in research and development. Prignitz Mikrosystemtechnik sells about a third of its products to customers in the United States, China, and Russia, while 40% of its products are sold in Germany. Sensors from Wittenberge are used, for example, in filter and ventilation systems, in oil and water tanks, and in truck anti-lock braking systems (ABS). The Stahnsdorf branch of Endress+Hauser Messtechnik GmbH + Co. KG also specialises in silicon-based pressure sensors. Such sensors are used in many industries, such as food, life sciences, energy, water/waste water management, raw materials/metals, chemicals, oil, and gas. The site was founded in 1994 and is expected to expand significantly in 2018. Indeed, the company has just doubled its workforce to approx. 180 employees in the first quarter of 2018. Further expansion over the next few years is planned. Electronic measurement technology for pressure, level, temperature, humidity and analysis © Prignitz Mikrosystemtechnik GmbH Maulburg/stahnsdorf GED Electronic Design GmbH is based in Frankfurt (Oder) and primarily works in the development and design of customer-specific circuits, so-called ASICs (application-specific integrated circuits). The experts work on the complete design flow from the defining specifications to readiness for serial production. They develop test hardware and software and transfer it to series testing at their partner, Elmos Semiconductor AG. The products GED has developed for customers include transponder ICs, various sensor ICs, motor control ICs, as well as LCD and LED drivers. micro resist technology GmbH is specialised in the development and production of polymer-based chemicals used in lithography processes for micro- and nanostructuring. The company based in Wuhlheide Berlin, supplies innovative polymer products and ancillaries that are used in the microelectronics and semiconductor industry. The specialty

Cluster Report Optics and Photonics – Microelectronics and Microsystems Technology 91 Innovative polymers and photopolymers for microoptics and photonics © micro resist technology GmbH chemicals also enable basic technologies for micro-optics, photonics and microfluidics, which find applications in the pharmaceutical, food or environmental analysis industries as well as consumer electronics. OrelTech GmbH is a high-tech start-up that produces nanoparticel-free conductive inks for printed electronics and catalysis. Their proprietary technology empowers the next generation of electronic devices to be simple, cost-efficient and green. As a pioneer in the conductive ink industry, they developed an alternative approach to metallizing surfaces, which enables high-precision metallization on a wide range of surfaces, including temperature-sensitive plastics and textiles or active organic materials. Metallic layers printed with OrelTech’s inks are much thinner and more compact. Besides the significant cost benefit that this introduces, it also enabled the development of their flagship product transparent silver ink (OTech T) with up to 85 % transparency, giving a true alternative to existing transparent electrodes. Besides silver, OrelTech offers gold and platinum inks as well. After winning INAM’s acceleration program Advanced Materials Competition in 2017 OrelTech moved from Israel to Berlin. Chapter 4.2 “Networks” gives a look at INAM. Complex micro-optical elements made from hybrid polymers from micro resist technology GmbH © Fraunhofer IOF Silver electrode printed on paper with OTech Jet nanoparticle-free conductive ink © OrelTech GmbH Since 1996 PolyAn GmbH develops and manufactures high-performance consumables for multiplex diagnostics and LifeScience research. Based on its Molecular Surface Engineering technology PolyAn offers microarray consumables, fluorescent micro- and nanoparticles as well as selection of reactive microplates for high-end applications. System integration as the key to the future With Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things, it’s not just the components that matter, but also the integration technologies. Electronics and microsystems technology are increasingly merging with the project in terms of both material and form: separate, retrofitted components are being replaced by fully integrated solutions adapted to the application system. This depends on having the right integration technologies.
