Keywords:memc electronic materials? imec? wafer? strained silicon?

Wafer manufacturer MEMC Electronic Materials Inc. has entered into an agreement with IMEC to join its Industrial Affiliation Program (IIAP) that targets the implementation of high-mobility layers and advanced source/drain engineering solutions in scaled planar devices as well as to license IMEC's strained silicon technology.

IMEC is an independent research center in the field of microelectronics and nanotechnology. By participating in IMEC's Industrial Affiliation Program, MEMC researchers get the opportunity to work within IMEC in cooperation with researchers from several semiconductor device manufacturers, with the goal of providing solutions for improved device performance by implementing strained silicon (Si) in the transistor channel for scaled planar MOS devices.

In addition, MEMC has also established a licensing agreement to produce blanket strained silicon bulk wafers using IMEC's thin strain relaxed buffer (SRB) technology.
