Intelligent products with microsystems - from the first idea up to production

Since May 2015, the institutes of the Hahn-Schickard-Gesellschaft für angewandte Forschung e.V. previously known as HSG-IMIT and HSG-IMAT operate under the new brand name Hahn-Schickard.

Hahn-Schickard offers industry-oriented R&D services for integrated microsystems, especially on the fields of microfluidics and sensors. At three locations in Southern Germany (Stuttgart, Villingen-Schwenningen, and Freiburg) more than 170 employees evaluate feasibility, develop and construct prototypes, enhance existing products, or arrange the volume production of microsystems. This includes best-equipped laboratories as well as three production lines: a germ-reduced and particle-controlled 600 m² cleanroom for the fabrication of silicon microcomponents and –systems, a line for assembly and packaging, and a line for the fabrication of lab-on-a-chip systems. Hahn-Schickard is certified according to DIN ISO 9001:2008.

Microsystems for innovative products

What we offer

Hahn-Schickard offers R&D services and individual solutions for innovative medical and pharmaceutical products based on microsystem technologies - from the first idea up to the complete product:

• MEMS (development, prototyping, production)
• Microsensors (flow sensors, gyroscopes, acceleration sensors, dewpoint sensors, ...)
• Microfluidics (micropumps, microvalves, ...)
• Lab-on-a-chip systems and analytics (prototyping, design & foundry service, assays, …)
• Electronics (microelectronics, wireless technologies, RFID, ...)
• Energy autonomous and cyber-physical systems
• Assembly and packaging (micro assembly, reliability, …)

What we are looking for

Companies or institutions which …

… would like to use microsystem technologies in their products to realize completely new approaches or enhance existing products.
… are searching for a partner with small/medium volume fabrication capacities for the costum-specific development of MEMS or lab-on-a-chip systems.
… are interested in common research and development projects.
