Energy harvesting ICs for battery-free sensor
In scientists’ quest for ambient-energy sources that can power sensor nodes in remote environments or difficult-to-reach settings where batteries are impractical, CEA-Leti takes a wide view. It is investigating energy harvesting systems ranging from micrometre-and-millimetre scale to centimetre scale or larger.
Powerful positioning and navigation technology
Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, and Orolia, a specialist in accuracy and performance for terrestrial, aeronautic and naval transportation positioning, navigation & timing applications, have announced a sensor-data-fusion engine that ensures resilient positioning and navigation even in cases of global navigation satellite system (GNSS) jamming or spoofing.
Smart-farm project to lower greenhouse gas emissions
Leti has announced a new European Commission smart-farming project that will deliver real-time data on soil conditions. Deployed via small, private Internet of Things networks, the SARMENTI sensor node will provide farmers with the next generation of a reagent-free sensor platform to monitor in real-time soil nutrient concentration and measure local environmental conditions, especially emission of ammonia and greenhouse gases.
Design innovative RF components for 5G networks
Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, and Radiall, have announced a five-year common lab to design innovative antennas and radio frequency (RF) to meet infrastructure requirements of 5G networks and photonics components for harsh environments.
New HIV vaccine using lipid nanoparticle delivery technology
Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, in collaboration with CEA’s Fundamental Research Divisionand INSERM, has developed a new vaccine approach for HIV based on engineered lipid nanoparticles that deliver p24 - a viral protein that is key to an HIV vaccine - and optimise the CpG adjuvant’s effect.
Edge-AI targeted with NVM memory cell
Researchers at CEA-Leti and Stanford University have reportedly developed a circuit integrating multiple-bit non-volatile memory (NVM) technology called Resistive RAM (RRAM) with silicon computing units, as well as new memory resiliency features that provide 2.3-times the capacity of existing RRAM.
Combined integrated optics and holography in AR technology
An institute of CEA-Tech, Leti, has developed a novel retinal-projection concept for augmented reality (AR) uses based on a combination of integrated optics and holography. The lens-free optical system uses disruptive technologies to overcome the limitations of existing AR glasses, such as limited field-of-view and bulky optical systems.
Mid-infrared optical sensors for portable devices
It has been announced by CEA-Leti that it has prototyped a next-generation optical chemical sensor using mid-infrared silicon photonics that can be integrated in smartphones and other portable devices. Mid-IR chemical sensors operate in the spectral range of 2.5 to 12µm, and are considered the paradigm of innovative silicon-photonic devices.
Partnership to decentralise cloud-to-edge AI
Leti, a research institute at CEA-Tech, has announced that its sensiNact Internet of Things (IoT) middleware will be the core of a platform under development in a EU-Korean project that will empower emerging Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications with on-demand computing at the edge of networks.
Project to improve reliability of electronic devices for autos
Leti has announced a project to improve reliability and response time of low cost automotive components by equipping the devices with sophisticated model predictive control techniques.
Multi-project wafer service with integrated silicon OxRAM
Research institute at CEA Tech, Leti, and CMP, a service organisation that provides prototyping and low volume production of ICs and MEMS, have announced the multi-project-wafer (MPW) process for fabricating emerging non-volatile memory OxRAM devices on a 200mm foundry base wafer platform.
Substrate innovation centre to develop engineered solutions
It has been announced by Leti, that they have a new collaboration and five year partnership agreement, to drive the research and development of advanced engineered substrates, including SOI and beyond. This agreement brings the Leti-Soitec partnership to a new dimension and includes the launch of a prototyping hub associating equipment partners to pioneer with new materials.
Collaborative programme to assess sensors for autonomous vehicles
It has been announced by Leti, Transdev and IRT Nanoelec, that they are collaborating on a pilot program to characterise and assess LiDAR sensors to improve performance and safety of autonomous vehicles.
Building cyber-physical products for the IoT market
EuroCPS has supported over 30 European companies to create cyber-physical products for emerging IoT markets, while increasing their turnover and growing their teams. Coordinated by CEA Leti and funded by the European Commission, this three-year, €9.2m project helped innovators (at small/medium enterprises, or SMEs, and large companies) overcome the barriers they face when entering new markets.
Waveform for 5G low-power wide-area IoT networks
Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, has announced that field trials of its new Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology, a waveform tailored for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, showed significant performance gains in coverage, data-rate flexibility and power consumption compared to leading LPWA technologies. Leti’s LPWA approach includes its patented Turbo-FSK waveform, a flexible approach to the physical layer.
International microfluidics group launched to write new standards
It has been announced by Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, that new ISO standards on microfluidics will be developed under Leti’s initiative and guidelines.
How microelectronics is fuelling innovation
Leti has announced its annual flagship event, Leti Innovation Days, 4th to 5th July in Grenoble. This year, the institute will address how microelectronics, Leti’s core activities, are empowering technological revolutions within industry, changing our daily lives in ways that will shape tomorrow’s global, post-modern society – in other words, how humans interact, commute, consume and much more.
A path to creating building blocks of quantum processors
CEA-Leti has announced a breakthrough towards large-scale fabrication of quantum bits, or qubits, the elementary bricks of future quantum processors. They demonstrated on a 300 mm pre-industrial platform a new level of isotopic purification in a film deposited by chemical vapor deposition (CVD). This enables creating qubits in thin layers of silicon using a very high purity silicon isotope, 28Si, which produces a crystalline quality comparable to...
Brain-inspired tech brings data processing to IoT devices
A forward-looking call to action for the microelectronics industry has been issued by CEA-Leti’s chief scientist to create a radically new, digital-communication architecture for the Internet of Things in which “a great deal of analytics processing occurs at the edge and at the end devices instead of in the Cloud.”
5G system prototype unveiled at 2018 Winter Games
A research institute of CEA Tech, Leti, has announced that the European and South Korean project, 5GCHAMPION, will demonstrate the world’s first 5G platform from 20th to 22nd February, during the 2018 Winter Games. The 5GCHAMPION consortium, which includes 21 universities, research institutes and companies from Europe and South Korea, is supported by the European Commission and the Korean Ministry of Science and ICT.
