You can use the services and know-how of the Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS in the area of pressure sensor systems. Develop your application-specific pressure sensor system together with IMS and reach your destination quicker due to our thirty years of know-how.

Our services include, among others, the development of MEMS-based pressure transmitters that are customized to your needs. Thus the measuring range of the system can be easily adjusted from a few millibar up to 600 bar; and your individual requirements in the digital and analog signal processing can be taken into account as well.

We at Fraunhofer IMS introduce our profitable know-how to the development of novel sensor elements and processes for the successful realization of your plans. In this process we support you in production, qualification, delivery from the prototype up to the serial product.

Furthermore, pressure systems (sensor elements and ASICs) for operation in temperatures of up to 300 °C have been successfully developed and put into operation. In addition, services and know-how of IMS include the realization of passive pressure sensors that stand out for their low power consumption. These sensors have an excellent transponder capability (RFID).

Our know-how in the area of pressure sensor systems also includes the realization of biocompatible and hermetic encapsulated sensors that exhibit long-term stability and are therefore implantable.

Please feel free to contact us and describe the desired application field for your sensor system as well as the framework conditions. We would be pleases to advise and help you with our know-how to find the suitable IMS service for you.
