10:10 AM - 10:40 AMKeynote III: Overcoming the Data Deluge Challenges with Greener Electronics By Oliver Faynot, Silicon Department HeadCEA-Leti

The purpose of this paper is to propose scientific and technical directions to reach global data and power sobriety while preserving computational efficiency. We present nine opportunities to lower the power consumption of computing units. A growth factor of 100 to 1000 in energy efficiency is achievable in the next 10 years if we take full advantage of all the potential improvements, working simultaneously at all five levels of the technological ecosystem (process steps, circuits, architecture, software and algorithms).

Session 3 addresses the topic of “Photonics integration:
How to bring these worlds together?”

During this SSI session attendees will get insights into

  • the technical state of the art of heterogeneous photonics integration and Silicon photonics
  • funding opportunities for these topics
  • as well as latest market data.

In a Q&A and Panel at the end of the session you will have the opportunity to ask your questions and give the presenters your views and feed-back on what to do next to
“bring these worlds together!”

01:30 PM - 03:00 PMTRACK V – Strategy and Business Creation | SME & Start-up engagement in European Projects: how to improve particiaption further? By Roland Dörr & Laure QuintinmicroTec SW & MINALOGIC

SMEs and Start-ups often need funding due to limited financial resources for product developments or to bring their product on the market. A promising approach for companies is a participation in European Projects. The funding is usually high but there are often obstacles like the proposal process or administrative challenges. In this Session we want to discuss  from different perspectives how to improve the situation for companies, e.g. what regional clusters can do to better involve SMEs in EU funding schemes. We will have SME pitches, which report about their experiences with EU programmes. Last but not least we will have a Panel discussion with representatives from regional clusters to discuss the topic.

09:00 AM - 09:30 AMKeynote IV: Making micromirrors system integration friendly: thin-film piezo technology By Andrea Onetti, Executive Vice PresidentST Microelectronics Srl

Micromirrors are the key components of innovative products in the augmented reality and automotive ADAS markets. In addition to the well-known challenges of being an emerging solution such as scalability and the unavoidable race for performance, micromirrors pay the price of an increased complexity of integration. Following years of research, development and partnerships, ST’s piezo technology answers these challenges with its ability to scale resolution and field of view as well as volume occupation and/or power consumption thanks to the enhanced displacement characteristics of the new materials.

09:30 AM - 10:00 AMKeynote V: Smart Systems will create the future By Harald Kuhn, director Fraunhofer ENAS, director Center for Microtechnologies at TU ChemnitzFraunhofer ENAS

More and more intelligent components and intelligent integrated systems are finding their way into a wide range of innovative products and applications that affect all branches of industry and almost all areas of life. The advances in the individual components and subsystems are necessary, but not sufficient, to meet the requirements of today and tomorrow. Especially interdisciplinary approaches as well as the new integration technologies as well as the combination with intelligence in systems and modules are the key and open up new possibilities for the future.

10:00 AM - 10:30 AMPresentation Thomas Gessner Award By Apoorva SharmaTU Chemnitz

The Thomas Gessner Award is a contribution of Fraunhofer ENAS to promote applied research by awarding a prize for excellent scientific work at the annual Smart Systems Integration Conference. The award is aimed at national and international master and PhD students in the field of Smart Systems Integration, whose thesis is at least assessed as “very good” and does not date back more than two years. The evaluation process considers in particular: The novelty of the scientific and methodical approach, Advance of knowledge, Implementation of the scientific results into the application and proof of economic success, Internationality.

The prize committee reflects the aspirations of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft to support applied research and to ensure that scientific results are put into practical applications. In addition, it also reflects on the broad range of research activities in the field of Smart Systems Integration within Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
