Home > Press > IMEC Joins the SOI Industry Consortium

Abstract:
The SOI Industry Consortium, aimed at accelerating silicon-on-insulator (SOI) innovation into broad markets, announced today that IMEC has joined the organization as an academic member. IMEC is a world-leading independent nanoelectronics research center headquartered in Leuven, Belgium. It has been active in the field of SOI technologies for more that two decades.

IMEC Joins the SOI Industry Consortium

Boston, MA | Posted on February 24th, 2009

"SOI has long been one of the key routes on IMEC's roadmaps. In semiconductor technology, platform creation is of vital importance in making progress, creating critical mass, and identifying common interests between various players. That is what IMEC is doing, and that is what the SOI Industry Consortium is doing. We support the activities of the consortium and look forward to moving forward together," says Luc Van den hove, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of IMEC.

"We are extremely pleased to have IMEC as part of the SOI Consortium," says Horacio Mendez, Executive Director of the SOI Industry Consortium. "IMEC is recognized as one of the world's leading semiconductor R&D institutes. The expertise and knowledge they bring to this partnership will be exceptionally valuable in maximizing SOI's capabilities."

IMEC's collaborative CMOS scaling research platform targets technology generations two to three nodes ahead of state-of-the-art IC production. The activities are organized as a cluster of programs enabling very advanced research. Based on its long-standing track record and expertise, IMEC's central focus in these programs is on advanced process module and device research including the exploration of new materials. Beside fundamental studies related to device physics, IMEC is also processing both partially depleted (PD) and fully depleted (FD) SOI devices.

The SOI Industry Consortium is open to any company, organization or academic institution with an interest in SOI.
