Mixed-signal and digital solutions vendor AMI Semiconductor (AMIS) has entered into a new two-year collaboration program with European research center IMEC to develop future smart power technologies.

Under the terms of the agreement, AMIS will develop smart power processes and devices in IMEC's 200mm facilities, and use IMEC's expertise and experience in deep submicron process technology. A team of on-site AMIS engineers will work together with IMEC engineers in the IMEC premises in Leuven, Belgium, in close collaboration with the AMIS smart power team in Oudenaarde, Belgium.

"This collaborative agreement will allow us to develop our next generation I4T Smart Power Technology platform while protecting our differentiating and critical IP. IMEC is the ideal collaborative partner because of its advanced infrastructure, its outstanding engineering competences and its business model," said Christine King, AMIS CEO. "Furthermore, being close to our Smart Power team in Oudenaarde is an important asset."

AMIS has collaborated with IMEC on a number of developments during the last 20 years.
