Groundbreaking system architectures for SMEs

Globalfoundries, Fraunhofer, and Next Big Thing launch start-up in Dresden

Much of Germany’s innovative and economic strength can be attributed to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that successfully compete on the market with high-performance products and services. To be able to do this, more and more SMEs rely on highly integrated technologies. For many companies, however, developing these technologies in-house is a prohibitively elaborate, time-consuming, and expensive process.

The start-up Sensry gives its customers access to highly integrated, energy-efficient, and cost-effective sensor systems based on Globalfoundries 22FDX® technology. This enables them to easily use groundbreaking system architectures and manufacturing methods even for prototypes and small production runs, in combination with cutting-edge assembly and packaging technologies. Moreover, Sensry’s »building block approach« employs a modular design offering an exceptional degree of flexibility. As a result, customers receive a customized sensor node equipped with a flexible, customer- specific selection of sensors and communication solutions.

Sensry has its roots in the joint project USeP (Universal Sensor Platform), a collaboration between a consortium of Fraunhofer institutes in Saxony and Globalfoundries Dresden, funded by the Free State of Saxony and the European Union. The start-up was founded in conjunction with Next Big Thing to market the results of this project.
