Sensonors extensive partner network
Sensonor develops solutions in cooperation with partners that are global leaders in their respective technology areas. The following organizations constitute the backbone of our extensive partner network.
The SINTEF Group, Norway, is the largest independent research organization in Scandinavia and provides research-based expertise, services and products ranging from micro technology, communication and software technology, computational software and information systems to security and safety.
The close cooperation with Sintef (from the sixties, SI, the national institute for applied industrial research, later integrated with Sintef) has been paramount for Sensonor. In general Sensonor develops basic micro technology integration and manufacturing processes in close cooperation with the Microsystems and Nanotechnology group and the clean room laboratory MiNaLab.
Particular strengths of the relationship are within DRIE, wafer bonding, functional materials and MEMS and MOEMS devices.
University of SouthEastern Norway, Campus Vestfold in Horten has established itself as one of the main academic center for micro system technology in Norway. The Faculty of Science and Engineering offers Bachelor, Master and PhD degrees in MEMS, nanotechnology and Micro-System-Technology. The Department of Microsystems (IMS) holds a number of state of the art laboratories and cleanroom, in addition full range of instruments for design, manufacturing and verification of MEMS components and microsystems.
Areas of research are within MEMS with focus on micro energy devices, biomedical micro systems and micro packaging technologies. USN co-ordinates industry cluster activities within "Norwegian Centre of Expertise - Microsystems".
Sensonor has a strong cooperation with IMS in the field of micro packaging technologies.
Acreo Swedish ICT AB, Sweden, is an independent contract research institute in sensors, sensor systems, electronics, optics and communication technology. Acreo was a key partner in the development of Sensonor´s gyro technology. Acreo Sensor Systems have as technology partner to Sensonor developed a unique understanding of how utilize Sensonor´s gyro and IMU components in motion tracking and navigation applications.
Acreo Nanoelectronics possesses unique competence with focus on IR-detectors and thermal imaging such as QWIP, Microbolometers and Biomedical imaging. Acreo is well renowned for its excellence within the area of gyro technology and semiconductor based radiation detector technology for wavelengths ranging from X-ray to far-IR. Sensonor has a close cooperation with Acreo.
