R&D for high speed electronics and photonics
The Florida-based design center adds a suite of services for companies that want to develop and manufacture innovative electronics in the United States and globally. It focusses on products and systems in healthcare, aerospace, security, and transportation. The state-of-the-art research on photonics and high-speed electronics IC design is a scientific discipline where life-changing discoveries are fueling the explosive growth of products used every day, everywhere, and by everybody.
The design center facilitates the collaboration between imec’s headquarters, based in Leuven, Belgium, and U.S.-based semiconductor and system companies, universities, and research institutes. Its initial focus is the R&D of high speed electronics and photonics solutions, starting with an offering of IC design research for a broad set of semiconductor-based solutions. It also provides IC design needs that will drive ICAMR (International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturint Research)’s manufacturing research. Through imec Florida, imec’s design, prototyping and low-volume production service - also named imec.IC-link - provides the US market low-cost access to advanced foundry services, helping entrepreneurs to (industry and academia) design innovative products and get them to market.
