Europractice will facilitate the evolution of advanced nanoelectronic components to packaged integrated systems. It will
- Augment the many years’ experience of the Europractice Partners (imec, Fraunhofer IIS and STFC) by the addition of CMP
- Provide European industry and academia with an easy platform to develop smart integrated systems, from advanced prototypes
to volume production.
New Technologies and Customers
Europractice will continue to support the academic sector and
- Extend its services to European Industry, especially SMEs and spin-outs from innovation in Universities and Research Laboratories.
- Add new technologies and design tools in strategic areas, such as Photonics.
- Introduce advanced packaging for multi-die systems.
- Widen access to nanoelectronic technologies from European based suppliers e.g. STMicroelectronics.
Concept and Methodology
Europractice will act as the prime interface between customers and the technology providers.
- Links with Digital Innovation Hubs and Design Houses will broaden the user base and encourage new users from non-traditional sectors.
- Collaborations with Pilot lines will bring their novel technologies to a wider customer base.
