Sensors Global Summit

Emerging technological innovations enabled by next generation sensors will define the landscape for the future commercialization of life changing products. The exponential growth of the global sensors market and the demand for next generation integrated systems is expected to reach over $150 billion by 2025. An international faculty of key industry and academic leaders will present the latest technological advancements of real-world applications within healthcare, manufacturing and emerging markets through featured plenary talks, conference tracks, tutorials and roundtable discussions.

Imec will be present at booth 6 with topics as ingestibles, connected health solutions and sensors. Visit our booth to talk to an expert.

11 December -  3:00 PM Ingestible and Insertable Technology for Advanced Monitoring of the GI System

Nick Van Helleputte, PhD, R&D Manager, Biomedical Circuits & Systems, imec
Globally metabolic health is dropping at an alarming rate. The human gastro-intestinal system is a very complex system and actually rather accessible, certainly considering recent technological advances in sensing and miniaturization. This talk will focus on technological innovations needed to provide a holistic view of the human GI system in the form of ingestibles or minimally invasive insertables.

11 December 2:00 PM Silicon-Based, Miniaturized Sensing Technologies for Real-Time, Multi-Parameter Monitoring

Winny Tan, PhD, Senior Manager, Strategic Alliances, IMEC USA
Continuous analysis of biological and chemical substances offers great promises for applications such as environmental monitoring, diagnostics, precision agriculture, food analysis, and process analytical tools for monitoring pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. However, if we want to realize these promises, we need to drastically decrease the cost, size and power consumption of current solutions – while increasing their performance. Hence the unique value of semiconductor-based technologies and their opportunities for extreme miniaturization and integration of hardware and software algorithms at the sensor node level. This presentation will give an overview of highly compact, yet extremely sensitive sensor and imaging technologies that can be applied for high-throughput, real-time analysis of biological and chemical substances. Detecting heavy metals, pollutants and even bacteria are all part of our roadmap
