Along with the ever-increasing use of wireless sensor networks for personal electronics; wearables; industrial monitoring and control; aerospace; environmental monitoring; agriculture etc. comes the need for energy efficiency. MEMS and solid-state means of harnessing thermal or physical energy as electrical power are coming to the fore. INEX is engaged with customers on addressing this ever more essential need.
MEMS devices are already challenging the dominance of quartz crystals in consumer product for time-keeping applications or for providing precision high frequency references for wireless communications and system clocks. Beyond this, ultra-high quality low power oscillators based on advanced resonators are needed for high-precision and power-sensitive wireless applications. This is also an area of focus for INEX.
We have developed a comprehensive range of processing capabilities on high performance materials including Diamond and Gallium Nitride. This specialist process know-how coupled with our engineering creativity is enabling the development of novel detector technologies across a range of applications from radiation detection to environmental monitoring.
As electronic devices grow ever smaller and power densities increase, effective thermal management is critical to the reliability and durability of today’s high-performance semiconductors. These steadily increasing heat loads, require innovative solutions that enable products to perform at ever higher levels. INEX has developed and patented novel packaging technologies to offer unparalleled heat dissipation enabling semiconductor devices to reach new levels of performance.
