“MOISENSE” Sistema per la misura Inline dell’umidità nei processi industriali National project funded by Regione Umbria for the development of an innovative moisture measurement system for industrial processes (POR FESR 2014-2020. Asse I Azione 1.1.1.)   OBJECTIVES The project goal is to develop innovative microwave sensors for the measurement of moisture in a wide range of solid, liquid, granular and powdered materials. Unlike from resistive and infrared sensors, microwaves have the capability to penetrate into materials and interact with them in a non-destructive way. The sensors can be either used off-line or integrated in production lines to ensure cost-efficient and high quality industrial processes. L’obiettivo del progetto è sviluppare dei sensori innovativi a radiofrequenza per il rilevamento dell’umidità in una vasta gamma di materiali solidi, liquidi, granulari e polveri. A differenza dei sensori resistivi o a infrarossi, le microonde hanno la capacità di penetrare nei materiali e interagire con essi in modo da rilevare i parametri desiderati in modo non distruttivo. Grazie anche alla loro elevata velocità di acquisizione, i sensori possono essere utilizzati sia off-line che integrati nelle linee produttive per ottimizzare i processi e garantire prodotti ad alta qualità.   STATUS On-going   PARTNERS   RF microtech s.r.l.

“NANO components for electronic SMART wireless systems” H2020 Project for the development of innovative NANO components for high end radar and mass market IoT applications (Project n° 825430  – H2020 ICT–07a–2018 – Electronic Smart Systems)   OBJECTIVES The objective of NANOSMART is to develop technology for future generation, smart monolithic Transmit / Receive front-end ICs capable of RF switching, power management, high efficiency, at a fraction of the footprint and cost of current solutions. NANOSMART addresses this need by developing a new technological platform based on CNT and 2D material electronics (the two most promising technologies to replace Silicon electronics in the future). NANOSMART develops unique concepts such as deep sub-wavelength antennae, CNT NEMS for RF switching, nano electromechanical reconfigurable filters and multiple FET technologies. Monolithic integration of all technologies mentioned above will provide a compact platform including new amplifier architecture, power management, RF switching and antennae on one monolithically integrated chip. Within the front-end IC, three sensor types (temperature, humidity and RF radiation built from novel technology) will also be integrated to provide smart, autonomous system reaction and thus improve accuracy, power efficiency and real-time system health monitoring and on-the-fly response to ambient conditions. The two demonstrators planned are aiming at high end radar and mass market IoT applications providing this level of smart functionality for the first time.   STATUS On-going   PARTNERS THALES SA, France (Coordinator) RF Microtech SRL, Italy Foundation for Research and Technology, Greece Institutul national de Cercetare-Dezvoltare pentru Microtehnologie, Romania Chalmers Tekniska Hoegskola AB, Sweden SHT Smart High-tech AB, Sweden Universita Politecnica delle Marche, Italy Regie Ecole Superieurie de Physique et de chimie industrielle, France University College Cork-National University of Ireland, Ireland Fundacio Institut Catala de Nanociencia I Nanotecnologia, Spain               Official Project...
