.istart is named as 1 of the world's 10 best programs in the European ScaleUp Reports by Sirris, remaining a real stronghold among big players such as Y-Combinator, Techstars, 500 Startups, Seedcamp, and Microsoft Accelerator.
Part of this challenge results from a lack of fundamental understanding of EUV sub-pico-second exposure processes, according to Imec
In the Horizon 2020 project CARDIS, imec
, Medtronic, and 7 other partners, have developed a prototype mobile, low- cost, point-of-care screening device for CVD.
's ExaScience Life Lab is an imec
lab focused on providing software solutions for data-intensive high- performance computing problems, primarily in the life sciences domain.
Verellen, senior photonics researcher and project leader at imec
, said, "Compact, high-resolution and high-throughput microscopy devices will induce a profound change in the way cell biologists do research, in the way DNA sequencing becomes more and more accessible, in the way certain diseases can be diagnosed, new drugs are screened in the pharma industry, and healthcare workers can diagnose patients in remote areas."
's and Holst Centre's SoC moves beyond current solutions and combines advanced biomedical readouts, supported by an ARM Cortex M0+ controller and accelerators for sample-rate conversion, matrix processing, data compaction, and power management circuitry (PMIC).
The start of manufacturing will not only enable IMEC
to achieve competitiveness in pricing and delivery lead time, but will also contribute to strengthening IMEC
's business capability to supply more market oriented products and after-sales services based on a streamlined structure for production, sales, installment and maintenance.
The new state-of-the-art 300mm cleanroom complements imec
's other production facilities including its bio- nanolabs, neuroelectronics labs, imaging and wireless and electronics test labs, photovoltaic pilot lines, and GaN- on-Si, Silicon photonics and MEMS pilot lines.
To develop the technology platform Imec
and its US partner, the Johns Hopkins University, will establish a company, named miDiagnostics, with the financial support of local entrepreneurs Marc Coucke, Michel Akkermans and investment company PMV.
This breakthrough was achieved at the Solar cell Lab, Kaneka Osaka, using heterojunction technology with Kaneka's copper electroplating technology, which is based on imec
's state-of-the-art copper electroplating knowhow.
Insights gained during a comprehensive research program on TSV-based 3D-IC design and technology enabled Imec
to extend the DfT architecture for conventional ICs with several patent-pending features.
A micro-sized piezoelectric transducer has so far shown the best result at IMEC
. It consists of a cantilever with one or several piezoelectric layers sandwiched between metallic electrodes forming a capacitor.
