Webinar: “i-Edge” - a miniaturised rugged sensor/actuator platform

4 October 2023, 11am–1pm CEST (10–12am BST), online meeting

Welcome to an interactive webinar for those interested in sensors, process control and asset tracking, in harsh environments!

What to expect at the first webinar of the i-EDGE project:

  1. Learn about our harsh environment low power sensor/actuator IC platform using “NEM switch technology”
    Review our plans to package it into “i-Edge” rugged device for a broad range of applications
  2. Critique our target specifications
    Temp. (<325 °C); rad. hard (>1 MRad); device shape and size: onboard sensors, external probes
  3. Influence the functional circuit blocks to be included in our next wafer run
    RF comms, memory, computation, algorithms, sensors, interfaces, actuation
  4. Find out about participating in our Business Interest Group (BIG) for:
    Early samples, influencing platform development, regular updates
