ARM and Imec joined to 7 nm-chipprocedé work




British chip designer ARM has joined the Insite program of the Belgian IMEC institute, to collaborate on the development of the production process for 7 nm chips and smaller. Cooperation should 7nm-socs bring to market faster.

The contribution of ARM to the IMEC Insite program will mainly consist of research into the impact of chip designs and architectures on consumption, performance, size and cost of 7 nm nodes and smaller. According to IMEC see chip developers with an increasing number of choices faced in the transition to 7 nm and smaller, such as type transistors, the number of exposures of wafers and the type of material.

To assist companies in making these choices In 2009, imec created the Insite program. This research shares his knowledge in the field of the reduction of logic chips with partners. Meanwhile, more than ten partners joined Insite, including Nvidia, Qualcomm, Intel, Samsung TSMC, GlobalFoundries and now ARM.

Imec in Leuven, Belgium was founded by the Flemish government in 1984 and is one of the renowned institutes for research into new technologies for electronics. The organization works with companies and universities, for example, the techniques needed to transistors smaller than 5nm make . That research has now become more important the limits of Moore’s Law into sight again.
