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.
Kicking off ISSCC 2018 with an opening day keynote
Chief Scientist from Leti, Barbara De Salvo will help kick off ISSCC 2018 with an opening day presentation calling for 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'.
Lens-free point-of-care system diagnoses spinal meningitis
A research institute at CEA Tech, Leti, has invented a lens-free microscope technology that provides point-of-care diagnosis for spinal meningitis. Outlined in a paper presented at Photonics West, the new technology provides immediate results and eliminates errors in counting white blood cells (leukocytes) in cerebrospinal fluid, which is required to diagnose the infection.
SoC memory improvements highlighted at IEDM 2017
A research institute of CEA Tech, Leti, demonstrated significant improvements in the field of memory systems at IEDM 2017. These improvements included reconfiguring Static Random-Access Memory (SRAM) into Content-Addressable Memory (CAM), improving non-volatile crossbar memories and using advanced Tunnel Field-Effect Transistors (TFET).
The solution to stop drones from crashing has arrived
At the CES 2018 show in Las Vegas, Leti, research institute of CEA Tech, will demonstrate its low power, low cost 3D anti-crash, fusion-sensor solution for drones. Leti’s 360Fusion software, in combination with miniaturised sensors, collects, analyses and transforms millions of incoming 3D distance data items into relevant, actionable information.
Micro-coolers for CERN particle detectors
In order to pave the way for a revolutionary, new detector technique at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Leti has announced it has created a microfluidic circuit for cooling a particle detector.
Electric vehicles to boost performance and cut costs
Research institute of CEA Tech, Leti has announced a new European Horizon 2020 project to develop innovative electric drivetrains for third-generation electric vehicles.
European FP7 project links the silicon photonic ecosystem
The European FP7 project PLAT4M has now been completed with results that exceeded expectations, according to Leti. Si photonics has long been expected to bring substantial breakthroughs in very high speed data communications, telecommunications and supercomputing. In addition, it is one of the most promising industrial-production candidates because of its potential for large-scale and low-cost production capability in existing CMOS foundries.
Duo hoping to strengthen microelectronics innovation
