The competence center aims to act as contact point for interested parties and cover the whole production process for piezoelectric microsystems.
Many SMEs and Enterprises can be natural providers of piezoMEMS devices. But, since the technology is quite new and there are no open facilities for volume production of piezoMEMS, it is natural that the barrier for considering piezoMEMS technology is quite high.
The centrer will lower this barrier by offering assistance in areas specific to piezoMEMS such as design, modelling, PZT deposition and small scale prototyping. This will lower the threshold for interested parties to evaluating the feasibility of piezoMEMS technology.
