European Commission To Invest In Semiconductor Research - News Item

The European Commission is planning to invest 24 million euros in a semiconductor materials, process and design research project. The initiative, NanoCMOS, will investigate developments in semiconductor materials, processes, architecture and connections in order to increase semiconductor performance while reducing chip density.

Initial research will focus on 45-nanometer complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) logic technology before moving to 32-nanometer and 22-nanometer technologies.

Commercial participants in the project include semiconductor manufacturers Infineon, Philips and STMicroelectronics and research institutes, CEA Leti in France and IMEC in Belgium.
