Over the last years, SAL has esta­blished a 300 m² ISO-5 R&D clean­room faci­lity at the High Tech Campus in Villach: a conta­mi­na­tion-free envi­ron­ment with controlled tempe­ra­ture, humi­dity and pres­sure, furnished with state-of-the-art equip­ment to carry out micro­fa­bri­ca­tion and proto­typing of micro(opto)elec­tro­me­cha­nical systems (M(O)EMS), and advanced wafer level packa­ging.

In July 2022, a new buil­ding was inau­gu­rated, hosting an addi­tional 1,100 m² of clean­room space, making the SAL MicroFab the largest re­search clean­room complex in Austria with a total area of 1,400 m².

The new faci­lity will be equipped with batch process­ing tools that will enable indus­trial R&D and small series proto­typing, thus posi­tio­ning SAL MicroFab at the junc­tion between re­search deve­lop­ment and high-volume manu­fac­tu­ring.
