Smart Sensors & System integration

Carinthian Tech Research (CTR) ranks among the leading application-oriented research centers in Austria in the field of smart sensors and system integration. More than 70 researchers work in close cooperation with industrial partners to develop microsensors, power electronics as well as assembly and connection technologies. The recently constructed clean room in Villach which is at its disposal for microchip research and its system integration is the new centerpiece of the organization’s research activities. The area of the clean room for research purposes is 300 m². Up until now CTR has spent about EUR 2.5 million on construction and initial equipment, with another EUR 2 million to be invested in purchasing state-of-the-art devices for the clean room. The new investments are being funded by the European Fund for Regional Development and the Federal State of Carinthia, and are designed to further strengthen the business location of Villach as a hub for microelectronics.
