Growing needs for compact high-performance circuits and systems have provided a significant challenge to the design and fabrication of integrated microsystems and components. Due to its tradition, competent staff and notable results, Centre for Integrated Microsystems and Components (CIMC), Faculty of Technical Sciences, Novi Sad, Serbia and Montenegro, is recognized as a regional leader in this very propulsive field. Research at CIMC is performed in the following major areas: integrated passive devices and components, integrated analog micro and nano-systems, integrated digital micro-systems and embedded systems.
These areas are also recognized as priorities of the FP6 Programme, in particular through IST Actions 2.4.2, 2.5.2 and 2.5.3. One of the most important requirements for the systematic development of integrated microsystems and components is efficient characterization technique. However, the existing characterization techniques at CIMC are not in accordance with its development strategies. The existing equipment does not suffice to efficiently analyze high frequency devices and other complex microsystems and components. The proposed Project is aimed at the reinforcement of research capacities of CIMC, performed through upgrading of the existing equipment, and training of its staff. Hiring of two new young researchers is planed that will significantly contribute to CIMC human potentials.
This Project will strengthen CIMC leading role in the regional research community and allow full participation of CIMC in future European research projects. Furthermore, other research institution in the region will be targeted by dissemination activities. They will be encouraged to attend workshops and will have open access to the new equipment, consequently creating a strong boost for the sustainable research development and mobilization of the human and material resources in the whole region.
