innovation for industry
The chip shortage has provided an extraordinary boost to semiconductor research and development. International leaders, such as President Biden and President Macron, have made this R&D field a top priority to ensure sovereignty.
Ranked among the world's best semiconductor research and technology organizations, CEA-Leti will play a key role in helping Europe achieve maximum performance. The 2021 CEA-Leti Scientific Report highlights the major inroads it has made over the past year. Industrial partners will find within the latest R&D available to drive their business value up.
In 2022, CEA-Leti will continue to advance edge artificial intelligence, power electronics, zero-carbon mobility, personalized medicine, 6G telecommunications and cybersecurity to help Europe build a better tomorrow. Most importantly, CEA-Leti will guide the semiconductor industry in reducing its carbon footprint. The institute goal is to reduce the microelectronics hardware and systems energy consumption by a factor of 1,000 by 2030.
Finally, the automotive, IoT and other rapidly growing markets now require very-low-power embedded electronics systems. CEA-Leti will transfer a wide range of key low-power and high-performance technologies to industry, from substrates to memory solutions. FD-SOI offers an unique cost/energy consumption tradeoff, and the institute has been selected to host a FD-SOI 10 nm pilot line in 2022.
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.
