Microelectronics

The key to the successful use of microtechnology is well-designed and flexible electronics that enable easy control of the system. Our goal is to provide a microelectronics solution for your microtechnology application.

As a result, we now have a rich portfolio of electronic components for microtechnology, from laboratory applications to integration into mobile devices. In other words, from large-scale control to accompanying your series electronics, we offer a complete setup to turn an idea into a real success.

And to go one step further towards series production in microtechnology, we also offer an microelectronics briefing that enables the savvy professional to integrate our electronics into their own application in a cost- and space-saving way.

mp-Multiboard2

mp-Multiboard2

Evaluation board

The mp-Multiboard2 is an evaluation board which allows the control of one of our I²C controlled pump drivers by an ESP32 microcontroller. Our drivers are the mp-Highdriver4, the mp-Highdriver, the mp-Lowdriver and the mp-Driver. Up to six mp6 micropumps can be connected to the board simultaneously. An external power supply connection via USB Type-C is available. However, the board can also be powered via the microcontroller’s USB port. The board has several auxiliary ports for use with active valves, pressure and flow sensors. The mp-Multiboard2 comes pre-programmed with interface software and a Windows application. In addition, because of the esp32, a connection via bluetooth can be established for wireless use. The interface protocol will be available soon.

  • Variable parameters amplitude, frequency, waveform depending on selected driver chip.
  • Amplitude range: depending on selected driver chip.
  • Frequency range depending on selected driver chip.
  • Power supply: 5 V, 500 mA
