Design and foundry services

As a catalyst of semiconductor innovation, imec strives to lower the barrier to chip manufacturing. Companies, including start-ups, can use imec as a single point of entry to design support, chip fabrication, packaging, and qualification – in a wide range of standard and more exploratory technologies.

Getting an IC or nanotechnologies manufactured is a tough process. The challenge more than doubles when initial volumes are low or non-conventional process steps are involved. It’s hard to get access to all the necessary capabilities. And the major foundries find it difficult to incorporate such projects into their overloaded schedules.
