Microelectronics is a subfield of electronics. As the name suggests, microelectronics relates to the study and manufacture (or microfabrication) of very small electronic designs and components. Usually, but not always, this means micrometre-scale or smaller. These devices are typically made from semiconductor materials. Many components of normal electronic design are available in a microelectronic equivalent. These include transistors, capacitors, inductors, resistors, diodes and (naturally) insulators and conductors can all be found in microelectronic devices. Unique wiring techniques such as wire bonding are also often used in microelectronics because of the unusually small size of the components, leads and pads. This technique requires specialized equipment and is expensive. Digital integrated circuits (ICs) consist mostly of transistors. Analog circuits commonly contain resistors and capacitors as well. Inductors are used in some high frequency analog circuits, but tend to occupy large chip area if used at low frequencies; gyrators can replace them in many applications. As techniques improve, the scale of microelectronic components continues to decrease. At smaller scales, the relative impact of intrinsic circuit properties such as interconnections may become more significant. These are called parasitic effects, and the goal of the microelectronics design engineer is to find ways to compensate for or to minimize these effects, while always delivering smaller, faster, and cheaper devices.

INSYS icom
INSYS icom
Insys icom is the brand name of Insys Microelectronics Gmbh and we are a specialist designer, developer and manufacturer of industrial data communication products.Industrial data communication is revolutionizing the world economy and INSYS is a driving force in its continuing development. In bridging the communication between machines and systems, the question of physical distance has been removed almost completely. It doesn’t matter whether the sender and receiver are separated by continents or just around the corner. Our customers can act immediately because they have their data at their fingertips. That saves time and money and increases productivity, especially in the areas of remote control, service and maintenance. Distances that were once travelled by individuals can now be covered electronically and virtually without any CO2 emissions. Industrial data communication as we understand it is a green technology. This is our area of expertise where we offer our customers the top performance they deserve.
