GloFo, Fraunhofer, NBT launch startup for IoT chips
A large part of the technical innovation worldwide is carried out by small and medium-sized enterprises. However, these companies do not have the material and human resources to develop their own highly integrated semiconductor solutions. A company founded jointly by Globalfoundries, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and The Next Big Thing AG now wants to fill this gap.

Sensry, the name of the start-up, offers its customers access to highly integrated, energy-saving and cost-effective sensor systems based on Globalfoundries' 22FDX technology. This enables the use of forward-looking system architectures and manufacturing methods, even for prototypes and small series, in conjunction with state-of-the-art assembly and packaging technologies. The modular approach offered by Sensry also offers a high degree of flexibility thanks to its modular design. As a result, customers get customized sensor nodes with flexible customer-specific equipment of sensors and communication solutions including the associated cyber security concepts.

"The Internet of Things creates enormous impetus for business ideas in all industry segments. But many creative and innovative IoT start-ups often lack the bandwidth to find the right technical solutions," explains Sensry Managing Director Konrad Herre. "We offer start-ups and SMEs uncomplicated access to state-of-the-art IoT system-on-a-chip technology to build ready-to-use modules. Thus, the complexity of components, modules and functional groups is no longer a brake on innovation".

The launch of Sensry is the result of the USeP (Universal Sensor Platform) joint project funded by the Free State of Saxony and the European Union, in which a group of Saxon Fraunhofer Institutes is working together with Globalfoundries Dresden. The aim of the start-up founded together with Next Big Thing is to market the project results. In addition to the chip manufacturer Globalfoundries, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft for application.oriented research as well as the start-up incubator and venture capital provider The Next Big Thing AG are involved.
