Speaker Biography (Ari Alastalo)

Ari Alastalo received the M.Sc. degree in technical physics in 1997 from Helsinki University of Technology (HUT). From 1996 to 1998 he was an assistant at HUT working in the area of magnetic quantum impurities. From 1998 to 2001 he was with Nokia Research Center carrying out research of radio propagation, RF architectures, baseband algorithms and protocols for adaptive-antenna systems. Since 2002 he has been a Research Scientist at VTT Sensors focusing on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), adaptive RF frontends and printable electronics and sensors. He received his Doctor's degree from HUT in 2006. From 2006 he has led the Nanosensors team at VTT Sensors and Wireless Devices

Company Profile (PriMeBits)

PriMeBits logo
The PriMeBits project is being coordinated by the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.
In the PriMeBits project, a printable electric low-voltage nonvolatile memory is developed for printed sensor, media and wireless-ID applications. The main strategy is to utilize printed technology where it has a competitive advantage compared to silicon technology. The project builds on basic research of new materials and components and takes the results into prototyping of new applications. To reduce the research risk, two different technologies for the memory functionality are considered with partially overlapping application areas. Project focuses on inorganic metaloxide nanoparticle-based ferroelectric FRAM memory and a resistive metallic-based write-once-read-many (WORM) memory.
