innovation for industry
Articles ＆ files
The Integrated Circuits Design Platform brings together more than 170 research engineers at the CEA Grenoble site. It develops for its industrial partners advanced digital, analog, mixed-signal and radio-frequency (RF) circuits with innovating architectures, technologies and performances especially in terms of low power consumption.
The IC Design Platform’s scope of intervention covers all aspects of design, from silicon substrates to advanced packaging. Relying on foundry technological solutions and services to manufacture its circuits, CEA-Leti resources are used to characterize and validate prototypes as part of its R&D mission to secure and accelerate the subsequent industrialization process.
The platform features state-of-the-art computer-aided design (CAD) software and equipment, enabling design, hardware emulation and electrical characterization. It collaborates with CAD software suppliers to create new products adapted to emerging technologies. The scope of its activities and expertise make it a design center without equal in Europe.
OVERVIEW OF MAIN ACTIVITES:
Digital integrated circuits, multi-core processors
Analog, RF, and mmW integrated circuits
Mixed integrated circuits
Next generation memory circuits
Neuromorphic circuits, cybersecurity, etc.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
