With our video series we want to give you insights into our competences, accompany our scientists and introduce you to our superwomen in science. Find out what motivates our employees and why they enjoy working at SAL, which innovative projects we are working on and how we want to unfold the future along the entire EBS value chain.
This was ASSIC
For the past 8 years, Silicon Austria Labs worked together with several industrial and scientific partners in the scope of ASSIC Austrian Smart Systems Integration Research Center. The focus of the research activities of ASSIC lies on intelligent system integration based on micro- and nanotechnologies. With its research activities, ASSIC offers well-founded system knowledge about components, technologies, materials, assembly and connection technologies.
Tiny Power Box
In the project "Tiny Power Box", the focus is on optimizing the power density of built-in chargers in electric cars, so-called onboard chargers. The aim is to reduce weight, save components and space while at the same time increase power density by a factor of 4, achieve highest efficiency for fast charging, and increase environmental compatibility.
Silicon Austria Labs - Your research partner for electronic based systems
Silicon Austria Labs is your research partner for electronic based systems.
With strategic and contract research as well as in cooperation with industrial and scientific partners, SAL conducts research on relevant key topics with future-oriented development potential. 50% of the project volume is financed by SAL, while the cash contribution from the industrial partners only amounts to 25% of the total project volume. The remaining 25% is contributed by industry through in-kind services. In addition to numerous highly equipped laboratories (including a Metrology Lab, Environmental Lab and an Optics Lab), an ISO class 5 clean room for processing chips and wafers as well as using the latest packaging technologies is available for research in Villach.
Superwomen in Science: This is what our researchers work on in the cleanroom
At SAL Villach, we have several laboratories, including a 300m² cleanroom with beyond-state-of-the-art equipment. Sarah, Annalisa, Jasmin and Madeleine work on innovative microsystem technologies, such as piezo MEMS. In the video, they talk about their research and what it takes to start and have a successful career in research.
As part of our research on Sensor Systems in Villach, SAL is operating the COMET K1 center ASSIC Austrian Smart Systems Integration Research Center. The focus of the research activities of ASSIC is on intelligent system integration based on micro- and nanotechnologies. With its research activities, ASSIC offers well-founded system knowledge about components, technologies, materials, assembly and connection technologies. Learn more: https://www.assic.eu/
Silicon Austria Labs & University of Klagenfurt work on ubiquitous sensing
In the joint USE Lab, Silicon Austria Labs and the University of Klagenfurt are working on ubiquitous sensing and bring the "smartness" in the sensor.
Superwomen in Science: Johanna Zikulnig
Johanna studied Biomedical Engineering and works on flexible sensors and printed electronics at SAL. She talks about the importance of sustainable electronics, her latest achievements and how she turns the challenges, that come with the job, into innovative technologies.
eSPML Lab works on paradigm shifting signal processing solutions
In the joint eSPML Lab, researchers from Silicon Austria Labs and Johannes Kepler University Linz work on signal processing and embedded Machine Learning.
mmW Lab works on 6G and autonomous driving
In the joint mmW Lab, researchers from Silicon Austria Labs and Johannes Kepler University work on millimeter wave technologies in high frequencies of 100 to 300 GHz. This enables technologies such as autonomous driving or high data communication.
Check out our High-Tech Cleanroom
What is a cleanroom and what is so special about ours? Mohssen Moridi, Head of Research Unit Microsystem Technologies, talks about our cleanroom facilities, what we work on and why these technologies are important for the future.
In our cleanroom, we work on projects for SAL as well as ASSIC Austrian Smart Systems Integration Research Center. https://www.assic.eu/
Silicon Alps meets Silicon Austria Labs
Eine Position als Geschäftsführer mitten in einer Zeit der Krise anzutreten, ist keine leichte Aufgabe. Ebenso sich als Spitzenforschungszentrum in Österreich international zu etablieren.
Wie DI Dr. Gerald Murauer seine bisherige Zeit als Geschäftsführer des Spitzenforschungszentrums Silicon Austria Labs gemeistert hat, in welchen Bereichen geforscht wird, was die Ziele für die nächsten Jahre sind und auch welche Synergien es hier mit dem Silicon Alps Cluster im Bereich der Electronic Based Systems gibt, erfahren Sie im Tabletalk „Silicon Alps meets Silicon Austria Labs“.
