Microsemi joins new SOI-HITS research project to reduce CO emissions and achieve energy savings

Technology News |
Microsemi Corporation is participating in a multi-disciplinary consortium tasked with developing innovative CMOS-compatible, high-temperature sensors that help reduce carbon emissions and drive energy consumption savings. The European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7ICT) is funding the majority of the SOI-HITS (Silicon on Insulator High Temperature Systems) project, which is slated for completion by the end of August 2014.

Microsemi will lead and manage the SOI-HITS project, and be responsible for high-temperature packaging and system integration activities.  Additional consortium members include:     

Cambridge CMOS Sensors, a spin out SME, will exploit the ‘revolutionary’ smart technology for gas sensors developed by the Universities of Cambridge and Warwick;     

Cambridge University, a world renowned body, will provide overall scientific coordination and technical leadership for the nano sensor design and fabrication within harsh environments;     

Cissoid, a leader in high-temperature semiconductor solutions, will design a high-temperature, highly integrated, intelligent interface circuit for the gas sensor;     

Honeywell Romania will be responsible for the demonstrator design and testing; will oversee the exploitation activities of the project; will be involved in gas sensors design and fabrication, and in the numerical simulation of the sensors and sensing system developed within the project;     

IREC will be responsible for scientific research related to gas sensing structures, design, numerical simulations, test structure fabrication and sensing layer selection;     

Université Catholique de Louvain will design and test a water vapour concentration sensor, a UV photodiode and associated interface electronic circuits, for high temperature operation;     

Warwick University, a world renowned Microsensors & Bioelectronics Laboratory (formerly Sensors Research Laboratory), will be responsible for the characterization and testing of the gas sensors under harsh environmental conditions.
