Institute for Automation and Applied Informatics

System Integration - Systems, Processes, Equipment (SI-SPE)




The “System integration – system-, process-, and equipment development” work group researches and develops methods and technologies for the integration of complex systems used in nano- and micro-technology. In cooperation with the IAI work groups, i.e.,  and System integration – Optical inspection and image processing, the group aims to achieve a comprehensive development approach starting from system design, process and equipment development, up to optical inspection.




The core competencies include:

  • methodical system design,
  • dispensing techniques for small quantities,
  • techniques for printing of functional structures,
  • handling processes,
  • and automation technology.

The developed methods and procedures are used in photonic and printed systems.


The group cooperates with different KIT institutes as well as several national and international research and industry partners.
