Deventer, 29th October 2019 – RoodMicrotec, a leading independent company for semiconductors supply and quality services, today announces the start of the large European funding project APPLAUSE. A consortium of 31 key players for packaging of electronics, optics and photonics, leading equipment suppliers and testing experts from 11 countries launched a new project, “Advanced packaging for photonics, optics and electronics for low cost manufacturing in Europe,” simply called APPLAUSE. The project fosters the European semiconductor value chain by building new tools, methods and processes for high volume manufacturing. As a part of the Electronics Components and Systems for European Leadership Joint Undertaking (ECSEL JU), the 34M€ total budget for the three-year project is co-funded by Horizon 2020 and national funding agencies and industries.

Being the leader of work package 6 (Testing, Reliability, Failure Analysis & Metrology) for all six industrial use cases, RoodMicrotec will contribute with its core competence in quality and reliability. As national coordinator for the nine German partners, RoodMicrotec also is the main contact for the German funding agency. In total, RoodMicrotec will receive about 750,000€ of funding from the EU and the BMBF (German Federal Ministry of Education and Research) within the next three years.

“APPLAUSE is a great chance to develop new technologies for the next generation of advanced packaging for the ever growing photonics industry with regards to testing and qualification. With our finger on the pulse of the time, we will strengthen our future market position”, says Martin Sallenhag, CEO of RoodMicrotec.

The six use cases include a substantially smaller 3D integrated ambient light sensor for mobile and wearable applications (ams AG, Austria), a high performance, low cost, uncooled thermal IR sensor for automotive and surveillance applications (IDEAS, Norway), high speed datacom transceivers with reduced manufacturing costs (DustPhotonics, Israel), a flexible cardiac monitoring patch (Precordior, Finland), miniaturized cardiac implants with advanced monitoring capabilities (Cardiaccs, Norway), and an optical water measurement module with cost-effective packaging of components (Vaisala, FinIand).
