CEA-Leti today announced that it has collaborated with Siemens Digital Industries Software to offer an updated process design kit (PDK) that enables photonic designers to select multiple methodologies, including layout centric, schematic driven and layout automation and provides access to CEA-Leti’s 300mm photonics multi-project wafers (MPW).
“Hardware is back” is the theme of the upcoming Leti Innovation Days with STMicroelectronics and Intel Corporation on June 22, 2021. The need to focus on innovations in hardware is more pressing than ever given the exponential increase in the energy consumption of systems expected in the coming years.
CESTI, the IT security testing center at CEA-Leti, has already earned a strong reputation for its expertise in the security of electronic components and devices. It is now the first testing center in France to certify biometric identification solutions. The first-ever certification was granted following an audit completed in partnership with testing lab ELITT.
GRENOBLE, France – May 31, 2021 – Armed with exclusive access to 11 CEA-Leti patents covering specialties such as DNA extraction and microscopic-sample diagnostics, CEA-Leti startup Direct Analysis has developed a pathogenic-bacteria-detection system for food manufacturers that takes one-fourth of the time of existing tests, can minimize stoppage of production lines and reduce food-product recalls and losses.
Low-Cost Gb/s Connectivity Overcomes Limits of Copper Wire and Optical Fiber for Automotive, Aeronautics, Telecom, Industry 4.0 and Healthcare Uses
With the theme “hardware is back”, CEA-Leti will host its annual Leti Innovation Days digitally on June 22 and 23.
A proof-of-concept prototype of a low-cost, compact, wearable tissue oxygenation sensor was developed by CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute. A clinical trial demonstrated the device’s effectiveness at monitoring tissue oxygenation.
CEA-Leti today announced the world’s first autonomous imager technology that activates smartphones and small appliances through face recognition or other specific patterns. Called µWAI (micro-WAY) and sized as small as a 1€ coin, the autonomous imager features a novel readout and processing architecture co-designed with an optimized algorithmic pipeline
CEA-Irig was among the partners on a French national research agency (ANR) project that resulted in the on-demand emission of single photons in silicon at 1.28 µm, a wavelength used in telecommunications. They did it by introducing carefully-engineered defects into the material. The goal is to integrate this photon source into CEA-Leti chips for quantum communications.
A silicon qubit tester recently acquired by CEA-Leti will substantially speed up quantum computer research. The tester can measure the electrical performance of several hundred qubits processed on a 300 mm wafer at 1.7 K (-271.3 °C). The qubits that make it through these tests will then be tested individually on a cryostat at Institut Néel at temperatures below 100 mK, a requirement for integration into quantum processors.
2020 will be forever in our memory! And as the world moved on to post-covid-19 era, the semiconductor industry’s response has been watched closely, because its technologies are vital to the success of the global economy and advances across multiple industries. From digital, computing to sensing competitive solutions, CEA-Leti invites decision makers on the lookout for innovative and promising chip-based R&D, as well as editors, analysts and entrepreneurs to peruse the institute’s reader-friendly “2020 Highlights” report:
Optronics researchers love the idea of germanium lasers on silicon—but the devices' contacts are highly thermally unstable. In a world-first, a PhD research project being conducted at CEA-Leti has explained this unpredictable behavior. PhD candidate Andrea Quintero has published ten papers on the phenomenon over the past three years, even winning a Best Paper Award at ECS Prime 2020.
The European DigiFed project, coordinated by CEA-Leti under the IRT Nanoelec technology research organization, brings together sixteen European SMBs around cybersecurity for IoT applications. Specifically, the project partners are investigating the use of STMicroelectronics’ STM32MP1 microprocessor to enhance the security of embedded software.
Targeted Applications Include High-Dimensional Distributed Environmental Monitoring, Implantable Medical-Diagnostic Microchips, Wearable Electronics & Human/Computer Interfaces
GRENOBLE, France – April 13, 2021 – A team of French and Swiss scientists has demonstrated a lensless imaging technique that could easily be implemented in cost-effective and compact devices in phage laboratories to accelerate phage-therapy diagnosis.
Cyclists who love the "fixie" (a fixed-gear city bike with no mudguards) could soon enjoy the comfort of a streamlined and quiet electric start-assist motor. CEA-Leti invented and patented elementary motor components that can be adapted in terms of size, number, and arrangement to suit the target application.
The CEA, Grenoble Alpes University Hospital, Grenoble Alpes University and Boston Scientific Corporation, a leading company in medical devices, have started on the Near Infra Red (NIR) project clinical trial in March 2021.
CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is part of a consortium led by Sequans that is gearing up to deploy 5G for critical IoT applications requiring reliable, low-latency communications.
Imaging has already been revolutionizing medical diagnosis for over four decades. CEA-Leti, which produced and installed the first French scanner in 1976, has been working tirelessly to develop equipment offering increasingly advanced performances.
The EU H2020 Hilico project, which CEA Tech institute CEA-Leti is coordinating, will result in the development of a GaN color microdisplay that delivers excellent resolution and very high brightness.
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.
