Speeding innovation for industry
Manufacturing and retail
Today’s electronics industry is under pressure to boost processing power, reduce component form factors and power consumption, and keep costs down. CEA Tech’s electronics research focuses on component miniaturization and advanced CMOS technologies like FDSOI and nanowires, as well as density-enhancing 3D circuits. CEA Tech is also developing complex products like non-volatile memory, power components, MEMS and NEMS switches and sensors, and RF technologies for 5G communications networks. Finally, CEA Tech is paving the way for future advances through research on quantum electronics and new computing paradigms like neuromorphic architectures, for example.
CEA Tech research covers all segments of the electronics industry in the broadest sense of the term.
Theoretically, in-memory computing should make it possible to reduce circuit power consumption. Researchers recently verified this hypothesis in the lab, using tools they developed for the programming of innovative computing architectures.
CEA-Liten, a CEA Tech institute, has invented the first-ever thermal sensors to utilize thermoelectricity to keep power electronics like HEMT transistors from overheating. The innovation does not impact fabrication processes or costs.
For the first time ever, CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, fabricated nanosheet transistors with seven levels of stacked silicon channels. This advance will pave the way to smaller, more powerful, and energy-efficient devices.
Resistive memory with revolutionary properties is made possible by a phenomenon known as ovonic threshold switching, or OTS. Researchers at Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently shed new light on the topic.
Researchers at Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently set a new LiFi data transmission speed record. Their secret? A micro-LED developed by Leti for a completely different use.
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.
