Fabmatics is supported in the following projects:

Joint project “Green mobility made in Saxony – Innovative solutions for future-oriented automotive and industrial applications (Future Mobility)”

The Dresden-based semiconductor manufacturer Infineon Technologies Dresden GmbH & Co. KG wants to develop technologies for the mobility of the future together with three medium-sized companies and seven research institutions from Saxony. In addition to Fabmatics, nine other cooperation partners are involved in the project. Under the leadership of Infineon Dresden, they are working on innovative solutions for microcontrollers and power semiconductors, from initial product ideas to high-volume production.

As part of this overall project, Fabmatics is involved in the sub-project “Digitization of further life stages of automation systems (planning, development, production)”. The main objective of the sub-project is to reduce the time from the initial idea to the usability of automation systems in semiconductor production. In collaboration with Infineon, Fabmatics is investigating the entire value chain from the specification, production and integration of new automation solutions through to the start of semiconductor production in order to find solutions for significantly shortening the time from the development of applications to production (time-to-market).

The European Union and the Free State of Saxony are funding the research and development project with around 17.7 million euros.

 

Funding programme “External R&D Services”

The funding program supports the cooperation of Fabmatics GmbH with the Dresden University of Technology as an external research institution. Through cooperation in research and development, successful innovations can be created and products and associated processes can be improved in a future-oriented way. The current project investigates influencing factors in the transmission of robot paths.

The promotion is made available from means of the European fund for regional development (EFRE)

 

Funding programme “Research and development/product innovation”

The project “Responsive Fab – Basics and Concepts for the Design of an Automatically Reactive Semiconductor Fab” is funded under this programme. Modern 300mm semiconductor factories have a high degree of automation with constantly growing demand. Especially in the field of subsequent automation of existing environments that are not prepared for this infrastructure, it is necessary to develop new, flexible systems and solutions adapted to the special requirements. In this project, Fabmatics GmbH is researching the necessary foundations for the subsequent automation of the transport and handling processes of non-compliant transport containers with special properties.

The funding is provided by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)

 

Funding programme “InnoExpert”

The programme serves to improve cooperation between science and industry and to strengthen the innovative strength of Saxon companies. As part of this program, Fabmatics GmbH is installing an “InnoManager” in its company. The task of the InnoManager is the targeted coordination and control of the complex development tasks of the mobile robotics team as well as the monitoring of technology trends. The aim is to expand the basis for a future-oriented further development of mobile robotics with internal partners and external research institutions.

Funding is provided by the European Social Fund (ESF)

 

Funding programme “Collaborative Training”

The programme serves to strengthen in-company vocational training. The aim of our project within the framework of this programme is to improve the quality of training and increase the training place potential of Fabmatics GmbH. The practical training in the training workshops and the test and trial rooms of the Dresden Chip Academy, which takes place in addition to the in-house training, is promoted.

The funding is provided by the European Social Fund (ESF)

 

Joint project “AI-supported electronic systems for sustainable production – AIMS5.0”.

The project “Intelligent AI-based intralogistics automation systems for the semiconductor industry” is funded under this program.

The aim is to increase the overall efficiency of fabs by introducing, adapting or expanding AI-enabled hardware and software components throughout the value chain. This improves sustainability, supply chain stability, and resilience, reduces the vulnerability of existing supply chains to crises, and helps reduce chip shortages.

In the project, Fabmatics GmbH is dedicated to creating AI-enabled hardware and software systems for more sustainable and efficient production.

Funding is provided by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the European Union’s “Key Digital Technologies Joint Undertaking” program.
