A new generation of sensors
Gaël Pillonnet, a seasoned energy conversion expert at CEA-Leti, has come up with an ingenious solution that significantly reduces the energy consumption of traditional transistors, albeit at a slower computation speed. This opens up a host of possibilities for achieving energy efficiency and computational performance, especially in edge computing.
CEA-Leti research leads to improved MEMS micro-mirrors for vehicles. This innovative technology aims to detect car tires (15cm high) from a distance of 100 meters. These research results emerged from the European Vizta project and are protected by three new patents.
CEA and Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, have agreed to extend their joint laboratory collaboration for three more years. The shared objective is to continue to test and fortify the security of world-leading process-and-energy technologies for greater resilience across industries.
CEA-Leti and Astrocast have announced their successful collaboration on a low-cost, bidirectional communication module that enables corporations to communicate with their remote assets in areas not covered by terrestrial networks.
The startup Remedee Labs has designed the first endorphin stimulator for individual use, with the aim of providing an answer to patients' chronic pain.
CEA, Soitec, GlobalFoundries and STMicroelectronics working together to define technology and ecosystem roadmap.
The 2021 CEA-Leti Scientific Report highlights the major inroads it has made over the past year. Industrial partners will find within the latest R&D available to drive their business value up.
CEA-Leti scientists, in collaboration with researchers at Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI), have developed the world’s smallest-footprint MEMS gyroscope that is capable of providing navigation-grade performance. The researchers were able to meet these specifications with a sensor footprint of only 1.3 mm2 by leveraging nano-resistive sensing.
CEA-Leti, a CEA technology research institute, received the award in the Impact Delivered category for the development of a patented Smart Cut™ process of substrate fabrication in collaboration with SOITEC, which results in a transfer of a thin active layer of silicon from one substrate to another, which can be used in all electronic devices.
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.
