Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 25 May 2011]

Nvidia has signed a 3-year research collaboration agreement with IMEC on advanced CMOS scaling, according to the Belgium-based research institute.

By joining IMEC's core CMOS program, Nvidia will get early insight in the impact of future process and design technology options on its next-generation products. The collaboration focuses on the system design impact of advanced devices, interconnect, including 3D, and lithography implications for the sub-20nm node.

"Our advanced CMOS scaling offering for the product design community in IDMs, fabless, fablite, and system-design companies is gaining a lot of interest. We are excited to welcome Nvidia as a valuable partner in our technology-design ecosystem," said Luc Van den hove, president and CEO of IMEC. "This collaboration once again confirms that our offering helps companies anticipate new technologies, so that they may design more advanced systems and applications, and put them on the market faster."

"As Nvidia continues to expand in markets ranging from super phones to supercomputers, we've accelerated the pace of innovation. By working closely with the world-renowned research team at IMEC, we can develop advanced foundry techniques that deliver state-of-the-art solutions to our customers faster;" said John Chen, VP of Technology, Nvidia.
