Competencies

Creating economic value from research knowledge.

Competencies

In terms of technology, future microelectronics and microsystems will be distinguished by extreme miniaturization and significant cost-reduction and by the fact that they address environmental concerns. In terms of implementation, assembly, interconnection, and packaging technology will largely determine the functionality, quality, and cost of future systems.

 

The HTA covers the whole value chain from applied research and development and engineering at the system level, to production in different fields including modeling, simulation, and design.
