In one of the world’s most innovative regions, imec’s research outpost explores the codesigning of systems and technologies to enable the next generation of smart devices.
The largest concentration of high-tech companies in the US. Two of the most prestigious universities in the world. And a lot of ground-breaking ideas floating around. The San Francisco Bay area is the perfect place for imec to set up an exploratory research center into the advanced nanoelectronics-based systems that will shape our future.
In close cooperation with their colleagues in Leuven, our researchers at Berkeley, led by long-term technology pioneer and visionary Jan Rabaey, dive into mid- to long-term outcomes of technological evolutions. At the moment, they’re focusing on:
"Being a part of the imec USA - Berkeley office allows you to apply the most advanced technologies in the world to some of the most exciting applications of information technology all this in proximity to the leading universities and companies in the field."

As a passionate researcher, you’ll find that the imec USA - Berkeley Office delights you with:
To move from an Internet of things to an Internet of actions, we need to look into alternative ways of computing.
To move from an Internet of things to an Internet of actions, we need a “smart” edge composed of a myriad of tiny, ultra-low power and connected devices. Current technologies won’t make that happen, so it’s time to look into alternative ways of computing.
We can no longer put our faith in a single semiconductor roadmap. We need to explore new combinations of technology and systems.
If we want to continue on the path of life improvements through digitization, we can no longer put our faith in a single semiconductor roadmap. We need to explore new combinations of technology and systems. And imec USA Berkeley Office is one of the places to do so.
