Speeding innovation for industry

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)
CEA Tech institutes List and Leti work together to drive advances in hardware-software integration (executing complex applications on miniaturized objects). List also addresses multi-core processor architecture design and programming, as well as embedded systems reliability, operating safety, and security issues.
The institutes’ researchers have access to an advanced virtual CAD environment for prototyping that enables them to rapidly investigate and assess complex innovative solutions (algorithms, processors, architectures, and embedded software) before building and testing them. This virtual environment can be used to ensure that developments meet the necessary specifications (form factor, energy consumption, safety, etc.) before physically building them.
ALL TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS
In research conducted under the EU H2020 project EuroCPS, Leti, a CEA Tech institute, partnered with Terabee to develop a low-cost embedded location and mapping system suitable for use in enclosed spaces.
ARCEP, France’s telecommunications regulator, granted Leti, a CEA Tech institute, a license to run a six-month trial at 3.5 GHz to test a 5G network on the MINATEC campus.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, developed and patented an innovative shield to protect the backsides of secure chips from physical attacks. The system was demonstrated to be effective, paving the way toward its future integration into the most critical types of integrated circuits.
List, a CEA Tech institute, has developed the first-ever industrial-scale reflectometry-based embedded early cable defect detection demonstrator system.
Leti and Liten, both CEA Tech institutes, developed the electronics and algorithms required to measure the internal temperature of a battery cell by estimating electrical impedance. The purpose of the solution is to detect the early signs of thermal runaway in embedded lithium-ion batteries.
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.
