IMEC launches new industrial affiliation program on GaN-on-Si technology

IMEC today announces the launch of a new industrial affiliation program (IIAP) that will focus on the development of GaN technology for both power conversion and solid state lighting applications. An important goal of the program is to lower GaN technology cost by using large-diameter GaN-on-Si and hence by leveraging on the Si scale of economics.

22nm interconnect technology takes a significant step forward

IMEC presents innovations in dielectrics and metallization technologies as well as in their integration approaches. Great progress has been obtained in the metallization of 22nm interconnects, in Cu/low-k reliability assessment and in the suppression of low-k integration damage. The results contribute to deliver the interconnect performance and reliability beyond the 32nm node.
