Delivering world-leading R&D on the next-generation technology nodes with our global partners.
All necessary 300mm equipment to allow advanced sub-7nm CMOS R&D.
Development on demand for products for which heterogeneous integration is needed
Our goal is to continue delivering world-leading research on the next-generation technology nodes serving the entire semiconductor ecosystem. Our global partners include foundries, IDMs, fabless and fablite companies, and equipment and material suppliers.
Imec together with its research groups and associated labs at universities have a variety of dedicated test labs where academic researchers and industry partners can put new technologies and concepts to the test.
Are you looking for advanced metrology solutions or specific material tests and analysis, or do you need to test networking and connectivity solutions?
We offer a variety of state-of-the-art test solutions to support you in your research or innovation.
We have set up this unique pre-pilot line to develop and refine solar cell processes until they are ready to be transferred to production lines.
The equipment is similar to that of a state-of-the-art solar cell production environment, processing 156mm x 156mm Si solar wafers. And the throughput (more than 1.000 wafers per week) is large enough to allow valid predictions of averages, standard variations and yield.
Techniques used in the pre-pilot line include isotropic acidic texturing, reduced pressure POCL3 diffusion, large-area PECVD deposition of Si nitride, and belt furnace rapid thermal anneal.
For its R&D, imec can rely on state-of-the-art GaN epiwafers that are fabricated in-house. We have unique in-situ growth monitoring, extended material characterization, and can evaluate materials through device performance assessments.
