The development, design and production of miniature technologies has had a great impact in our societies. These technologies represent an opportunity area to generate countless of products and services with high commercial value.
In order to foster the production and design of micro technologies in Mexico, FUMEC launched in 2002 the Microsystems Program which supports the development of a series of technologies that have multiple applications in sectors such as health, telecommunications, automotive and energy. Some of these technologies are:
- Micro Electromechanical Systems (MEMS).
- Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).
- Embedded Systems.
FUMEC has collaborated with leading organizations in Mexico, the United States and Canada with the purpose to: generate strategies that strengthen capacities in research, support the production of different kinds of miniature technologies, provide training for specialist in superior education institutions and research centers, as well as improve the infrastructure of these institutions.
The Mexican Microsystems Consortium (CMM) is an outcome of the jointly efforts from Mexico, the United States and Canada. The CMM was created in 2007 as a FUMEC spin-off that promotes competitiveness in enterprises and research centers through the use of microsystems.
