Smartphones: CEA-Leti technologies for today and tomorrow

   What's the techno?

CEA-Leti provides solid expertise to develop an array of innovative component technologies that make our smartphones work. From gyroscopes for screen rotation to future 6G antennas, this demonstrator brings together all CEA-Leti technologies currently used, or soon to be used, by telecom players.


  • Telecommunication: 5G/6G antennas. Ultra-wide band technology.
  • Computing: 3D integration, non-volatile memory, FD-SOI transistors, Edge AI, etc. 
  • Sensors:  NEMS, piezoelectric components and optical systems-on-chip.
  • Display: Screens using GaN microLEDs, etc.
  • Security: Risk management against intrusion and data theft using recognition sensors 
  • Radiofrequency: Dedicated components (filters, amplifiers, switches) 


From computing, display technologies to RF-SOI filters, CEA-Leti is developing a complete palette of technologies for tomorrow’s applications. CEA-Leti teams offer technologies that combine performance, low consumption, and innovative uses.   

  What's next ?
