A Novel Multi-Industrial Nano Control Unit based on Thermal Imaging

Reference number
Coordinator RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB - Rise Acreo, Kista
Funding from Vinnova SEK 2 000 000
Project duration May 2016 - August 2019
Status Completed
Venture Eurostars

Purpose and goal

The goal of the project was to research and develop, a novel Multi-Industrial Nano Control Unit based on thermal imaging, "MINC". The aim of the project was to develop an innovative low-cost, uncooled thermal camera sensor to be offered in the consumer market and towards the automotive industry. Within the project, RISE Acreo have developed hermetic wafer scale bonding methods. Appropriate anti-reflective surface treatment (ARC) and getter materials have been selected.

Expected effects and result

We have developed and tested two different hermetic wafer level packaging processes (eutectic and thermocompression) within the project that show promising result for a robust packaging concept. The packaging processes work for low temperature bonding (below 400 °C) and are cost-effective. Simulation for anti-reflective coating (ARC) shows that the selected material can produce the desired effect together with bonding methods and we have been in contact with companies that supply getter material in an industrial scale.

Planned approach and implementation

Each partner in the project has contributed with their key competence and developed their technology within the project. Technology transfer has taken place at certain milestones within the course of the project. Within the project, read-out electronics, detector materials, wafer level packaging technology and evaluation boards have been developed. Communication between project partners has taken place mainly via skype and mail.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
