Soitec and CEA sign a Five Year R&D Partnership on Advanced Engineered Substrates and Materials

Soitec (Euronext Paris), a world leader in generating and manufacturing revolutionary semiconductor materials for the electronics and energy industries, and CEA have renewed their long-standing and fruitful partnership for the next five years. This new contract aims to support Soitec’s strategy for the electronics, solar energy and lighting markets. It will focus on engineered substrates and materials offering higher performances and energy savings at a competitive cost.

As the new partnership is putting in place a powerful R&D ecosystem, time from research to product will be considerably reduced. Thanks to the strengths of CEA-Leti in electronic materials, multi-domain research and its pre-industrialization infrastructure, competitive R&D sample prototyping will be enabled thru a common platform, reducing time to market and R&D costs for Soitec and its customers.

The CEA-Leti and Soitec teams will focus their efforts on developing new materials generations to support Soitec road maps in three markets (electronics, solar energy and lighting). To do so, they will leverage the CEA-Leti and Soitec expertise and will use Smart Cut™ technology and extended tool box as key assets to support the next generations of mobile devices, solar cells and LEDs.

Dr. Carlos Mazuré, CTO of Soitec, emphasized: “in our industry, competitive pre-industrialization research, development of technology and product prototypes have become very important to make the difference. The CEA-Leti and Soitec partnership establishes a powerful alliance that is capable of answering the numerous challenges of today’s industrial requirements and building on our well-established material expertise.”

He added: “The agreement aims at accelerating exploratory research as well as technology innovation to prepare the products of tomorrow. It complements the Soitec strategy of entering new markets with high-efficiency concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) technology, high-intensity LEDs for lighting applications and engineered substrates for electronic applications.”

Laurent Malier, Director of CEA-Leti, said, “In recent years, Soitec has widely expanded its footprint and impact by addressing the electronics and energy challenges through its unique technologies which we developed together. Our partnership is the most efficient framework for securing research execution to support the ambitions of Soitec, and CEA-Leti teams are committed to its success.”

Fullbody Exoskeleton at SIGGRAPH 2013

Developed entirely in the Ile-de-France region by Carnot institute CEA LIST, EMY (Enhancing MobilitY) is a full-body exoskeleton designed to help quadriplegic people regain mobility.

Packed full with innovative technology, EMY is the fruit of 10 years of research by CEA LIST's interactive robotics unit and draws on extensive expertise in force control actuation, as well as the associated innovative robotic architectures.

EMY's architecture features four limbs: two legs with three degrees of freedom each, and two ABLE anthropomorphic arms with seven degrees of freedom each. To enable control by a quadriplegic patient, the exoskeleton will ultimately be controlled via a brain-computer interface - or BCI - called WIMAGINE®, developed by Carnot institute CEA LETI at Clinatec. The interface between the BCI and the exoskeleton will be ensured by a physics-simulation engine called XDE, also developed by Carnot institute CEA LIST. XDE is a haptic tool that simulates movement, contact and friction between virtual objects. This simulation layer allows EMY to be controlled at different levels of complexity, from the control of simple joint movements to abstract tasks coordinating the use of several limbs. As of 2014, it will also be capable of keeping the machine properly balanced.

The exoskeleton can also be used to control virtual reality physics simulation for industrial applications associated with “digital factory” design. These applications are being rapidly developed to reduce production set-up costs.

Thus, ABLE arms can not only control the movements of simulated objects, but also feed back the contact forces between them. Each of EMY's seven joints is equipped with a screw-cable system that exactly reproduces contact forces along the entire arm, doing away with the need for a force sensor (this function is fulfilled by the motor). Such outstanding performance is also due to the unique, lightweight, streamlined architecture which fits the human arm perfectly, without closing it in.
 The ABLE exoskeleton can thus perform realistic simulations of manual tasks involving contacts distributed along the entire length of the arm, for example when fitting parts inside “crowded” structures. It can also be used as an operator workstation assistant to make work less strenuous and reduce the risk of repetitive strain injuries. It does this by evenly distributing the effort when operators are holding tools and balancing part of their arm.

Alchimer Signs Collaboration with CEA-Leti to Evaluate Metallization Processes for High Aspect Ratio TSV Applications


Wet Nanometric Film Deposition Processes Capable of Delivering 20:1 Aspect Ratio TSVs at Low Cost of Ownership.

Alchimer, S.A. announced a collaboration with the French research institute CEA-Leti to evaluate and implement Alchimer’s wet deposition processes for 300mm high-volume manufacturing. The project will evaluate Alchimer’s Electrografting (eG™) and Chemicalgrafting (cG™) processes for isolation, barrier and seed layers. When combined, Alchimer's wet deposition processes have been demonstrated to achieve 20:1 aspect ratio through silicon vias (TSVs) due to their ability to coat conformally regardless of via topography, diameter or depth.

3D integration is moving towards a “via middle” approach where TSVs are formed after front-end processes, but prior to stacking. Several applications are in the development phase, leading to constraints and different specifications for TSVs. Alchimer's technology shows the potential to break through existing barriers to achieve high aspect ratio TSVs. This collaboration will evaluate the potential of its technology and its suitability for high-volume manufacturing.

BeSpoon and Carnot institute CEA LETI establish World Record Distance Measurement
on Single Chip

 

BeSpoon, a fabless semiconductor company, and CEA-Leti have demonstrated an IR-UWB integrated circuit able to measure distances within a few centimeters’ accuracy, and have established a world-record operating range at 880m (standard regulation) and 3,641m (emergency situations).
Impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) is recognized as an ideal technology for indoor applications, both in terms of accuracy and robustness. It measures distances within a few centimeters’ precision and is not affected by walls or people passing by.

The BeSpoon and Leti collaboration overcame two challenges sometimes associated with this technology: the difficulty integrating it on a single chip and its perceived limited operating range.
The chip jointly designed by BeSpoon and Leti features a full-blown IR-UWB CMOS-integrated transceiver that is able to perform accurate distance measurements. The standalone chip (RF front-end and digital base band) is designed for a straightforward integration within smartphones or set-top boxes.

Furthermore, BeSpoon has demonstrated the capability to comply with the strict regulation of IR-UWB, and yet operate up to 880m in line of sight. A world record distance measurement has been established at 3,641 meters, in compliance with the regulation for emergency situations.

First International Congress on Welding, Additive Manufacturing and associated NDT

ICWAM - Conference 2017 - Metz, 17 - 19 May 2017. International Congress organized by Institut de Soudure Group (Carnot Insittute ICÉEL) and Ecole Centrale de Nantes (ECN) - 17-19 mai 2017, Arsenal de Metz.

The congress includes plenary sessions, oral communications, poster sessions and industrial exposition covering all thematic goals of the conference in the field of “welding, additive manufacturing and associated non-destructive testing. The program is designed to allow intercommunication for the delegates and to promote an active dialogue between academic researchers and industrial delegates in order to bridge the gap between academia and pressing industrial needs.

Welding, surfacing and additive manufacturing mostly implement layer by layer deposition, using powders/wires/strips with similar heat sources (laser and electron beam, electric arc, etc.), have much more in common to share than their respective names seem to imply in the first instance. The scientific base that governs weld integrity is akin to what determines integrity of AM parts. The multifold objective of the conference is thus to:

  • Bring together welding technologists, metallurgists, NDT specialists on one side of the aisle and additive manufacturing researchers and users on the other side to share their experience for the advancement of science and technology in two very close fields.
  • Foster an international network of experts by bringing together actors from Industry, R&D organizations to critically review where the two technologies stand at a time when new materials and hybrid processes are developed at a fast pace.
  • Establish bridges between welding organizations and rapid prototyping/3D printing/additive manufacturing associations.
  • Open unexplored venues for smart fabrication processes.
