Solidifying its leading position as a global R&D center solving key challenges of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), imec will present one plenary talk, feature two invited presentations, deliver one tutorial, and present 9 papers from imec researchers as first authors and 5 papers as co-author.
“We are delighted by the IEDM committee’s recognition, which not only rewards our researchers, but proves the value of their work,” said Luc Van den hove, CEO at imec. “It is imec’s ambition to stay at the forefront of research to further support the global semiconductor industry with innovative solutions.”
Imec’s papers at IEDM 2012 include:
• Plenary—Luc Van den hove, CEO at imec—Ultimate Transistor and Memory Technologies: Core of a Sustainable Society;
• Invited paper—Kurt Ronse et al. —Opportunities and Challenges in Device Scaling by the Introduction of EUV Lithography;
• Invited paper—Eddy Simoen et al. —Insights in low frequency noise of advanced and high-mobility channel transistors;
• Tutorial—Mustafa Badaroglu—Scaling Challenges Analog Electronics.
