Leti lab director and inventor of the principle of contact plugs now leveraging advanced substrates.
In further recognition of his distinguished career, Dr. Simon Deleonibus, Director of Leti’s Electronic Nanodevices Laboratory, was recently awarded the grade of IEEE Fellow “for contributions to nanoscaled CMOS devices technology”. This follows on other recent awards including the Grand Prize of the French Academy of Technologies and the Knight of the National Order of Merit by the French Presidency. Read More
• Soitec has announced the acquisition of TraciT Technologies. A CEA-Léti spin-off, TraciT specializes in thin-film layer transfer technologies that leverage molecular adhesion and mechanical and chemical thinning processes for MEMS and power-circuit production. The technology is complementary to Smart Cut,™ and enables Soitec to enter new electronic markets, thanks to fully-processed electronic circuits transfer technology, which has short-term applications for wafer-level packaging.
The inventor of Smart Cut technology, Dr. Bruel reflects on its impact for the industry.
I knew a time when it was very common to encounter people who didn’t believe in the future of SOI technology, when people thought that only bulk silicon technologies would solve microelectronics’ new challenges. Read More
