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.
A curved sensor that limits the number of lenses required in optical equipment was recently developed. The new sensor reduces the volume of camera modules by half, creating opportunities for the manufacturers of cameras, smartphones, and other optical systems.
Researchers at Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently developed an electron holography technique capable of imaging material structures with a spatial resolution of just one atom.
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.
Exagan, a spinoff of Soitec and Leti, a CEA Tech institute, appears to have a bright future on the power electronics market. Named 2017 startup of the year by Ernst & Young, Exagan is scaling up a technology that could speed up the widespread adoption of GaN components.
ISKN, the first B-to-C startup to be spun off by CEA Tech institute Leti, has done very well, with selling more than 3,000 units of its flagship Slate through several distribution channels.
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.
