IMEC’s acquisition of CAMECA’s Invizo 6000 will contribute to its advanced research and development for future logic, memory, and interconnected architectures.
In an article published in the June/July issue of Semiconductor Digest, imec researchers introduce a unique simulation framework. This helps designers manage the complexity of performing cross-‘world’ optimizations – in order to enable the grand applications of the future.
As part of Mission Lucidity, the brain-on-chip project tackles Parkinson’s disease. Central in this endeavor is imec’s high-density multi-electrode array (MEA) that can interface at a single-cell level. With stem cell technology that can reprogram cells, the MEA can create and tweak any relevant brain circuit to study disease mechanisms and the effects of drugs on the circuits.
Imec is enabling technology for quantum computing with semiconductor and superconductor-based qubits, and the design of custom circuits adapted to cryotemperatures.
2D materials, a family of materials that form two-dimensional crystals, promise to enable a broad range of semiconductor applications, such as selectors or back-end compatible transistors.
Stochastic printing failures are random, non-repeating, isolated defects such as microbridges, locally broken lines and missing or merging contacts.
Imec takes a great leap forward in understanding and pushing the limits of extreme ultraviolet lithography – part I
In an article published in the most recent issue of imec’s online magazine (http://magazine.imec.be/) titled “Chips must learn how to feel pain and how to cure themselves,” researchers Francky Chatthoor and Guido Groeseneken discuss how to build reliable “5nm-node” ICs…
Once upon a time, SEMICONs were essentially just for semiconductor manufacturing business and technology, and predominantly CMOS ICs. Back when we followed public roadmaps for technology to maintain the cadence of new manufacturing nodes in support of Moore’s Law, it…
