ECSEL-09-2015 - Smart Systems Integration
Smart Systems Integration (SSI) topic addresses the system itself, enabled by heterogeneous (3D) integration of new building blocks for sensing, data processing, actuating, networking, and smart powering from battery or external supply or energy scavenging and managing.
The building blocks combine nano-, micro-, and power-electronics with micro-electro-mechanical and other physical (e.g. electromagnetic, chemical and optical) as well as biological principles. They can be built out of a diversity of materials to assure the highest performance, reliability, functional safety and security as required for operations under complex and harsh conditions, with multiple loads of critical magnitude acting simultaneously.
