Leti, a CEA Tech institute, initiated Silicon Impulse to give businesses unrivalled access to the most advanced integrated circuit design technologies.
Silicon Impulse, a center for advanced integrated circuit design technologies, was created in March 2015 at the initiative of Leti. The center's partners* contributed a broad array of resources and know-how to give businesses a single point of access to FD-SOI (silicon) technology and support for the increasing numbers of low-energy component development projects driven by the emerging Internet of Things. "We want to give businesses seeking innovative and advanced technologies an opportunity to design, make, and test FD-SOI circuits, providing the support they need from concept to manufacturing," said a Leti representative. Silicon Impulse services, which include prototyping and production test runs, cover all stages of development, from concept to scaling up a technology for industrial manufacturing. Services leverage Leti's and the other partners' industrial facilities.
Businesses can now benefit from the CEA's know-how in analog, RF, digital, memory, and integrated hardware-software solutions and find the right technologies for their needs, all at an affordable cost.
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.
