Speeding innovation for industry
Information and Communication Technologies
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, and Soitec, the global leader in the development and manufacturing of innovative semiconductor materials, recently renewed their joint lab for another five years. The contract will expand the traditional Soitec-Leti partnership to encompass a new world-class prototyping line.
The Substrate Innovation Center will give manufacturers access to Leti’s and Soitec’s combined know-how via a SOI substrate pilot prototyping line at the global state of the art backed by Leti’s advanced R&D equipment and prototypes. Users of the Center will be able to conduct early-stage testing of their innovative substrates on small runs of wafers. The partners’ goal is to make the Substrate Innovation Center the leading resource for the development and testing of engineered and innovative substrates that will meet the future needs of component suppliers and product designers.
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.
