New micro and sensor systems are being rapidly developed for their application in all technology events in future. The energy consumption of systems incorporated the latest technical advances decreases permanently to the range of only μW. For the applications in this low power range (a few 10 μW), DTS has developed a new self-sufficient power supply the low power thermoelectric generator. Whereas earlier with the help of MOS processing techniques manufactured thermoelectric generators reached only a μW-output, it was now possible to open up the μW-performance range on the basis of high effective thermoelectric compound semiconductor thin films, prepared by physical vapour deposition on polyimid substrates. The LPTG of DTS is a small compact thermoelectric device, full hybrid compatible with micro electronic and micro matched systems. Essential information about the LPTG device properties are given
