Set of videos of our microscale prototypes switching

Check out the videos of the microscale prototypes developed in ZeroAMP showing a few cycles of pull-in and pull-out of micro relays that work through electrostatic actuation. This set of videos has been produced by the team at the University of Bristol, under the lead of Dinesh Pamunuwa.

It is available on YouTube using this direct link.

ZeroAMP at IMAPS HiTEC, CICMT & Power Packaging 2023

Dr. Dinesh Pamunuwa, group leader at the University of Bristol, gladly represented ZeroAMP at the IMAPS HiTEC, CICMT & Power Packaging 2023 Conference on high temperature electronics, held on 18-20 April 2023 in Albuquerque, USA.

As part of his presentation entitled "Edge Computing Platform based on Nanoelectromechanical Relays", Dr. Dinesh Pamunuwa gave an overview of the devices (3-T, 4-T and 7-T relays) developed in ZeroAMP, the process optimised for large-scale integration and packaging, as well as the tools used to design and simulate circuits (logic, memory) and systems (NVM and FPGA) developed in the project.

i-EDGE has just started

The ZeroAMP consortium is glad to announce the official start of the i-EDGE project, which is a follow-on R&I project of ZeroAMP!

Coordinated by AMO GmbH, i-EDGE gathers 8 partners from industry and academia, and will run for 42 months until June 2026. Most of the consortium members already know each other, since i-EDGE builds on the technology platform developed in ZeroAMP.

Check out the i-EDGE website and follow the LinkedIn page for regular updates and to know more about the series of demonstrators developed in i-EDGE, their application and relevance to the EU Chips Act!

ZeroAMP technology featured on the cover of the Advanced Electronic Materials journal

The single-contact four-terminal relay developed as part of the ZeroAMP work at UNIVBRIS was featured on the cover of the January issue of Advanced Electronic Materials!

This relay is an important part of our nanomechanical standard cell library as we seek to build nanomechanical processors. A four-terminal relay is key to building complex logic blocks with a small number of devices.

Welcome to August in ZeroAMP!

The ZeroAMP consortium is glad to welcome and introduce the newest team member, August Djuphammar!

August has a recent master´s degree in nanotechnology from Chalmers University of Technology (Gothenburg, SE) and he will now pursue a PhD under the supervision of Frank Niklaus at KTH (Stockholm, SE).

In ZeroAMP, August will contribute to the nanofabrication of the NEM switches developed in the project.
