Synopsis:

The course deals with system integration applied in the design of digital and analog systems. It demonstrates the new possibilities of implementation and application of integrated microelectronic devices based on various physical and biochemical principles. It presents primarily MEMS technology that increases reliability with all its attributes. The course presents the modern action elements and microactuators, whose operation is based on fundamental physical and biochemical principles, including basic applications in micromanipulation, microrobots, microdrives, microsurgery, multimedia, medical, industrial control, automotive, etc. In the course are presented the principles of touch screens, microgenerators of electrical energy. There are mentioned basic elements of the use of nanotechnology and nanoelectronic structures and basic microsystem technologies.
