Abstract:
Imec, a world-leading nanoelectronics research center, and TSMC, the world-leading semiconductor foundry, today announced the extension of imec's Europractice IC service with the offering of TSMC's 40 nanometer technologies. Subsequent to the close collaboration between imec and TSMC on advanced technology research and development, both companies will offer TSMC's CybershuttleTM Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) platform for IC prototyping and production services to European companies and academia.

Imec's Europractice IC service provides TSMC 40nm technologies to European companies and academia

Leuven, Belgium | Posted on June 6th, 2010

The offering will include TSMC's 40 nanometer general purpose CMOS and low-power CMOS technologies. With this offering European-based companies and academia with low-volume manufacturing needs, such as universities, research centers, start-up companies, and companies with small niche markets will get supported access to advanced technologies from TSMC.

Europractice IC service, coordinated by imec, offers companies ASIC (application-specific integrated circuits) services to help bring their products to market quickly and cost effectively. These services encompass easy technology access, layout service, prototyping on TSMC's Cybershuttle, small to medium volume production, assembly and test.

"Extending the partnership with imec enhances our ability to support the growing Innovation in the European semiconductor industry, particularly of Small and Medium Enterprises, and enables European academia and research institutes to access TSMC's advanced technology offerings." said Maria Marced, President, TSMC Europe.

Carl Das, Director of the Europractice IC service at imec said, "We are very happy to extend our work together with TSMC. After offering TSMC's 40nm technology to European fables companies as TSMC-VCA (Value Chain Aggregator) partner, imec is excited to add the 40nm offering to its Europractice university technology portfolio. With TSMC's 40 nanometer technology portfolio offering, Europractice shows its continuous commitment to provide the best and most advanced solutions to European academia and research institutes."
