In order to meet the requirements of our customers, Cristal innov implements an ERP, as part of a quality system. This data management system aims in particular to ensure better traceability of materials and components all along the process, as well as over the long term.
This system will also strengthen compliance with deadlines and provide the document management required by ISO 9001 certification.
SiC crystal (or Silicon Carbide) is one of the main materials used for power components used in these vehicles. The Grenoble ecosystem has already taken strategic position on SIC technologies and processes, but a SiC crystal producer was missing. A cluster is emerging around Zadient, a young company which will develop an innovative and competitive process for the synthesis of SiC. Led by Zadient, a regional value chain is being implemented from R&D to 100 mm SiC wafers high volume production. Inopro and ECM (Grenoble) will design and manufacture innovative equipments.
The ANR project Acostovie aims to develop a sytem for serological diagnosis of Covid-19 (its spike protein) using a dual technology based on acoustic and optical biosensors. Led by the INMG institute of the Claude Bernard University of Lyon, in partnership with the L2N laboratory of the UTT of Troyes, Cristal innov will develop and supply a high-precision quartz resonator, a key part for the accuracy of this innovative diagnostic kit. A first prototype, designed and manufactured by TechnoFab (Technological FabLab at Crystal innov), is scheduled for this summer.
Quartz material development at Crystal innov is a success. We are now able to produce and supply quartz-made standard parts. The High Quality and purity (grade…) meet the severe requirements of space applications for Time-Frequency.
Development is going on to reach 100 mm diameter quartz wafers for high volume sensors and telecom filters. These developments, supported by the DGA and CNES, are carried out in close collaboration with all the players of the national quartz industry. Furthermore, Cristal innov starts European partnerships.
