Silicon Alps shapes the future of electronic systems

Long-term vision
System integration along the Silicon Alps value chain leads to first-class innovative products and R&D projects
2020 goals
Non-commercial (first virtual) demonstrator of SSI competencies based on the “Skiing of the future” playground
On this basis: formation of project teams and initiation of cooperation in the development of systems and R&D projects

Current highlights

The group was founded in January 2018. It represents a variety of partner competencies related to smart systems at different integration levels: materials and material analysis, smart sensors, packaging, hardware-software integration, smart product development, modeling & simulation, usability & user interaction, etc. The focus of the activities is the demonstration of cluster competencies and the initiation of R&D cooperation projects

how can we help you?

If you have any questions, contact us or one of our team members.

Few areas in our day-to-day life manage without products and components from the microelectronics, electronics or mechatronics industry. This, in turn, is a strong motor and an opportunity for the entire supplier industry. In my opinion, it is the suppliers, i.e. the small and medium-sized enterprises, that will benefit most from the microelectronics cluster Carinthia-Styria. The cluster is a platform that supports and encourages us suppliers to develop further and build new capabilities. For many this is even a stepping stone to access new sectors and markets.
