Webinar: Advanced CMOS post-processing for sequencing 4.0

November 4, 2021 | 12-1 PM EDT, 5-6 PM CET


The 4th generation of sequencing will be marked by electrical sensing, an even more prominent role of CMOS and the shift from standard to advanced CMOS technology with nano-dimensions. This is the key to further increase the number and density of sensing sites, and to increase system throughput and to reduce the cost, towards 10 dollar per genome.

In this webinar, we will showcase how CMOS processing can help build the next exciting phase in the human genomics journey with new capabilities for diagnosis, therapy and follow-up.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • how millions of sensors, microwells and miniature reactors can be post processed on top of a CMOS wafer with analogue frontends, logic and memory functions
  • what the advantage is of smart precision microfluidics for sample prep
  • how a unique cell sorter device can improve the extraction of cfDNA and barcoding
  • how advanced FinFET transistors and ultrasmall nanopore devices can accelerate the basecalling process.


Simone Severi received the M.S. degree in microelectronic engineering from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 2001 and the Ph. D degree from the University of Leuven, KU Leuven, in 2006. During his Ph.D he worked on ultimate device scaling, innovative channel engineering and processing for future CMOS devices technologies. In 2007, he joined imec and started working on Microsystems for mass data storage devices, on poly-SiGe surface micromachining technology and CMOS integrated biosensors. In 2009 he became team leader of the specialty component group at imec, with specific focus on MEMS and Bio-Photonics sensors. In 2016 he became group leader for lifescience process technology and in 2018 he was promoted to the role of program director of lifescience with focus on process technology. His current responsibilities cover all aspect of technology exploration and process development toward manufacturing for various lifescience customers and products.
