Micro and nano electromechanical systems (MEMS and NEMS) manufacturers are on a constant quest to lower chip energy consumption while keeping the cost of manufacturing key chip components down.
CEA Tech institute Leti brings 35 years of experience in MEMS R&D, and is one of the world’s largest centers for MEMS research. The institute has successfully transferred many of its innovations to manufacturers.
Leti offers a broad range of services covering the entire MEMS and NEMS development cycle, addressing sensors, switches, RF components, 3D integration, characterization, and reliability testing to partners’ specifications.
The institute’s flagship M&NEMS technology makes it possible to integrate nano-objects (piezoresistive nanowires) and MEMS onto a single sensor. This innovation—smaller than traditional MEMS capacitive sensors—marks an advance toward reducing manufacturing costs.
The city of San Francisco is keeping a close eye on air pollution with a little help from a startup from France and its real-time air-quality monitoring solution.
Soitec, one of the seven leads of the Nano 2022 plan, and Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently renewed and expanded their innovative substrate R&D partnership.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is coordinating the development of ISO standards for microfluidics. The goal is to speed up research and development in a field where design rules are often proprietary and empirical.
For the first time ever, a 256-pixel active matrix was printed at the PICTIC platform at Liten, a CEA Tech institute. This is the first-ever system-level demonstrator and it confirms the potential of printed electronics for industrial-scale manufacturing to equip tomorrow’s high-tech devices.
Greenfield Technology turned to Leti, a CEA Tech institute, to develop an electronic delay component with picosecond resolution. The development will help the company address new markets from a position of competitive advantage.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
