The main task of the preparatory scientific
project AVM is to form prearrangements for future miniaturisation
technologies. For the year 2010, so called e-grains with a size
of about 2 x 2 x 4 mm are intended. They shall possess own computing
power, energy supply and communication facilities. Compared to today's
systems this describes a completely new dimension of miniaturisation.
Therefore, the principle challenges of the joint research project
· the provision of an energy supply on smallest area
· the securing of communication between system and outside
· the integration of system components on smallest area
The associates in the joint research project AVM will approach the
problem in the following way: Fraunhofer IZM and TU Berlin - Research
Center for Microperipheric Technologies will develop structurable
lithium-polymer systems for foil batteries to ensure the stand-alone
energy supply. Furthermore, assembly and contacting technologies
for system integration will be provided. FBH and TU Berlin - Depts.
Microwave and Antenna Technologies will take care of the necessary
communication technologies, this includes the design of new miniaturised
antenna and GaAs-based RF circuits. For systems intercommunication,
TU Berlin - Depts. Telecommunication Networks and Open Communication
Systems will generate new network concepts. The project results
will be validated by fabricating prototypes, in co-operation with
small to medium enterprises.
