Imec and Holst Centre Present a Digital Receiver Excelling in Energy Efficiency and Small Size for Bluetooth 5 and Beyond

Leuven (Belgium), March 8, 2017 – Imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technology, and Holst Centre (initiated by imec and TNO) have developed a novel phase-tracking receiver bringing further power and cost reduction for the next generations of Bluetooth and IEEE802.15.4 radio chips. The ultra-low power digital-style receiver is 3x smaller than the current state-of-the-art. It supports supply voltages as low as 0.85V and consumes less than 1.6mW peak. An innovative low power antenna impedance detection technique enhances radio performance, especially for wearables or implantable applications.Read more...

Imecís 200mm GaN-on-Si e-mode power devices withstand heavy ion and neutron irradiation

Radiation hardness of e-mode devices confirm maturity of imec’s 200mm GaN-on-Si platform

Leuven (Belgium) – March 7, 2017 – Imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technologies, today announced that their 200mm gallium nitride-on-silicon (GaN-on-Si) e-mode power devices with a pGaN gate architecture showed no degradation after heavy ion and neutron irradiation. The irradiation tests were performed in collaboration with Thales Alenia Space, a leader in innovative space systems. The results demonstrate that imec’s 200mm GaN-on-Si platform delivers state-of-the-art GaN-based power devices for earth as well as for space applications.Read more...

Imec Presents InGaAs TFET with sub-60 mV/decade sub-threshold swing

Promising alternative for MOSFET in future ultralow power chips : At the CS International Conference (Brussels, March 7-8), the premier conference dedicated to compound semiconductor technology, world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technology, imec presented promising device results with a InGaAs-only TFET (tunnel field-effect transistor). Achieving a sub-60 mV/decade sub-threshold swing at room temperature, these devices are promising candidates to replace MOSFET transistors in future chip generations for ultralow-power applications operating on ultralow supply voltages.Read more...

Imec Presents Patterning Solutions for N5-equivalent Metal Layers

A step closer to High Volume Manufacturing Including Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography (EUVL)

Leuven (Belgium) – Feb 27, 2017 – At the SPIE Advanced Lithography conference in San Jose, Calif. (USA), world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technologies imec and its partners will present a patterning solution for a 42nm-pitch M1 layer and a 32nm-pitch M2 layer in logic design compatible with the foundry N5 requirements. The approach includes two scenarios for EUVL insertion that, when combined with an array of scaling boosters, serve as a basis of the industry requirements for power, performance, area and cost. Including proposals for design rules, masks, photoresists, etching, and metrology and an extensive process variation assessment, imec’s R&D has established the first comprehensive solution for EUVL enablement in high-volume manufacturing.Read more...

Flemish Government increases financial support of imec

LEUVEN (BELGIUM), Feb. 21, 2017 – Today, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technology imec, and the Flemish Government announced a new, 5-year strategic commitment that aims at strengthening the pioneering role of Flanders’ renowned research hub. Imec’s annual grant has been raised to 108 million euro with extra money being invested in imec’s longer-term strategic research to consolidate its global position in advanced semiconductor R&D and digital technology and their application domains in smart health, smart cities, smart mobility, sustainable energy and Industry 4.0.

Mega Mindy computerspel helpt kinderen met verlamming

Unieke combinatie van Virtual Reality en spiegeltherapie kan worden ingezet bij de revalidatie van kinderen met eenzijdige verlamming

Schelle (België) — 10 februari 2017— Vandaag stellen de partners van het imec.icon project wE-MOVE bij Studio 100 in Schelle een prototype voor van een Mega Mindy computerspel dat kinderen met eenzijdige verlamming helpt revalideren. Met een Virtual Reality bril zien de kinderen tijdens het spel hun verlamde arm perfect bewegen, wat hun hersenen traint om dat op termijn ook ‘in het echt’ te doen. Het idee is gebaseerd op de bekende ‘spiegeltherapie’ die ontwikkeld werd voor de behandeling van fantoompijnen. Naast een zeer nauwkeurige tracking van de bewegingen, werd ook een platform ontwikkeld waarmee de therapeut de frequentie, de kwaliteit, en de vooruitgang in de oefeningen kan opvolgen.

Imec, Holst Centre and ROHM Present Breakthrough Solution for Ultra Low Power Internet of Things radios

All Digital Phase-Locked Loop Combines sub-mW power consumption, small size and industrial-grade performance

San Francisco (US) — Feb.8, 2017— At the 2017 International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco (US), imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, Holst Centre (set up by imec and TNO) and ROHM today presented an all-digital phase-locked loop (ADPLL) for Internet-of-Things (IoT) radio transceivers. Whereas a PLL is traditionally one of the major power consumers in a radio and can take up to 30% of the radio area, this new ADPLL features a small area (0.18mm² in 40nm CMOS), low power consumption (0.67mW) and excellent performance. With all spurs lower than -56dBc and jitter below 2ps, which is beyond state-of-the-art digital PLLs, the new ADPLL shows an excellent robustness.
