CSEM Brazil is a Science and Technology Center (ICT) with the purpose of developing an unique innovation structure in Brazil capable of competing in equality with the best research centers in the world. Accredited by EMBRAPII, the center works with state-of-the-art technologies to develop, produce and deliver high value-added products based on the demands and challenges of its customers. Focused on market and competitiveness, it develops in Brazil the bases for the industry and technological businesses of the future.
Currently, the ICT has two unique and strategic technological platforms for Brazil: Sensing focused on IoT (Internet of Things) with the use of Ceramic Microsystems and Print Organic Electronics (OE). The ceramic microsystems platform, which encompasses Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic (LTCC) technology, is unique in Latin America and offers the development of high value-added devices that can be applied to extremely hostile environments that require the integration of several layers in a single ceramic package. On the other hand, the print organic electronics platform focuses on the development of the third generation of photovoltaic solar panels, OPV (Organic Photovoltaic). OPV panels have the smallest carbon footprint, they are flexible, transparent, lightweight, energy efficient and their roll-to-roll production process is highly scalable.
The center has infrastructure, equipment and qualified material resources to support the project’s demands. The proposed model allows the distribution of development activities within the multidisciplinary group, while at the same time, it identifies potential partners among the main research and development institutes in the country and worldwide.
A highlight for the project carried out in partnership with EMBRAPII, which is the OPV Floating, developed with Nexa.
