Home > Press > Imec welcomes NVIDIA as fabless partner in its advanced CMOS scaling program

Abstract:
NVIDIA, a world-leader in visual computing technologies, signed a 3-year research collaboration agreement with imec on advanced CMOS scaling. By joining imec's core CMOS program as INSITE member, NVIDIA will get early insight in the impact of future process and design technology options on its next-generation products.

Imec welcomes NVIDIA as fabless partner in its advanced CMOS scaling program

Leuven, Belgium | Posted on May 25th, 2011

NVIDIA joins the growing fabless community of imec's core CMOS program. The collaboration focuses on the system design impact of advanced devices, interconnect, including 3D, and lithography implications for the sub-20nm node.

Imec INSITE makes information from imec's advanced CMOS technology research programs available in formats that can be used by product designers for early assessment of the impact and potential of those technologies for product roadmaps. Imec's solution allows for early feedback towards technology specification, early decisions on required architectural design changes, and faster learning cycles for technology adoption with reduced risks. And, vice versa, the program allows imec to derive specifications for next-generation technologies from future system requirements.

"Our advanced CMOS scaling offering for the product design community in IDMs, fabless, fablite, and system-design companies is gaining a lot of interest. We are excited to welcome NVIDA as a valuable partner in our technology-design ecosystem;" said Luc Van den hove, President and CEO of imec. "This collaboration once again confirms that our offering helps companies anticipate new technologies, so that they may design more advanced systems and applications, and put them on the market faster."

"As NVIDIA continues to expand in markets ranging from super phones to supercomputers, we've accelerated the pace of innovation. By working closely with the world-renowned research team at imec, we can develop advanced foundry techniques that deliver state-of-the-art solutions to our customers faster;" said John Chen, vice president of technology, NVIDIA.
