As the number of IoT connections continues to expand, new data communication link solutions will be needed to cope with the data deluge and enable a more sustainable digital (r)evolution.
The surge in nanoelectronics and photonics has resulted from a need for miniaturized tools and devices that are an integral part of our lives. Additionally, it has now become necessary to consider innovation through issues involving planetary resources and energy consumption. Because it is installed in miniaturized devices, silicon-based CMOS technology is now central to these issues. This presents significant challenges for reaching a low energy consumption that aligns with current societal preoccupations.
MEMS and NEMS—micro- and nanoelectromechanical systems—are tiny devices like sensors, actuators, and micromirror arrays, with moving parts that are sensitive to a physical quantity like speed, pressure, or direction. They convert this physical quantity into an electrical signal, which can, in some cases, operate an integrated micro-actuator.
As embedded AI algorithms become more sophisticated, they also become more data intensive. In-memory computing dramatically reduces the power consumption associated with data transfer between memory and logic while helping keep data more secure. New non-volatile memory technologies that imitate the human brain’s energy-efficient synapses are also driving new low-power solutions. CEA develops and integrates all these technologies for a range of IoT projects.
As the limits of Moore’s Law approach, advanced chip packaging has emerged as a solution for continued scaling. CEA offers a complete chiplet and 3D integration toolkit enabling a modular “one to many” approach that speeds up the development of new solutions for automotive, high-performance computing,data centers, imaging, and more.
By launching the NextGen project, CEA aims to develop new generations of FD-SOI chips with better energy efficiency. It will ensure the capacity to engineer the most advanced components and maintain French and European microelectronics competitive for the future markets.
Vitesco Technologies, a leading international provider of modern powertrain technologies and electric mobility solutions, presents the first outcome of its partnership with the CEA in France: Together they have developed a “switched battery” (SWIBA) management technology that further improves the overall performance of the powertrain of electric vehicles.
CEA-Leti and Intel announced a joint research project to develop layer transfer technology of two-dimensional transition-metal dichalcogenides (2D TMDs) on 300mm wafers with the goal to extend Moore’s Law beyond 2030.
For a while now, articles on the threat of artificial intelligence to certain professions have been circulating. While it is true that AI is changing the way we work, Salam Hamieh believes that the issue is not about machines replacing humans, but rather about humans and machines working together to achieve better results.
CEA-Leti is developing an innovative blood analysis technology that does not require a mass spectrometer, reagents or a qualified technician. This solution could be integrated into a portable device, which would facilitate use in areas with few healthcare facilities.
Results Reported in Nature Article Suggest Vertical GeSn Transistors May Someday Enable Low-Power, High-Performance Chips and Quantum Computers
Seven Papers Highlight Results with High-Level Integration of Technologies & Components for HPC/Edge-AI Chiplets, Optical Computing, Displays and Imagers
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.
Thanks to its dedication to research, innovation and the transfer of technology, CEA continues to be a leader amongst French, European and international research organizations. For the 11th year in a row, CEA ranks in the Top 100 Global Innovators by Clarivate. This international ranking once again highlights the relevance and success of CEA’s strategy for intellectual property.
The CEA-Leti transfer of technology to LYNRED provides a set of technological building blocks for cooled infrared detectors with record-breaking performance
How can we prevent bacteria from settling and proliferating on the inside surfaces of the International Space Station (ISS)? Since 2016, CEA-Leti has been collaborating with Laurence Lemelle and Christophe Place (ENS Lyon) to solve this challenge as part of the Matiss project, which is funded by CNES. In particular, the project aims to develop smart, bio-inspired coatings without toxic metals or nanoparticles.
CEA-Leti has developed a transistor inspired by human synapses – an innovation that is quite possibly the closest we’ve come to imitating how the brain’s neurons connect. This transistor boasts many similarities with human synapses: how it operates, its ultra-low energy consumption and a similar level of miniaturization. It opens the door to a future with more powerful circuits that will meet the needs of artificial intelligence.
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.
