IMEC China has signed a joint development project on advanced chip process technology with semiconductor company Huali.

With increasing intention and capability to invest into advanced technologies, China is potentially an important market for a nanoelectronics R&D center as IMEC. IMEC China will facilitate collaboration between IMEC and China semiconductor and system companies, universities and research institutes in the area of technology transfer, licensing, joint development and training. IMEC China, located at the Zhangjiang High-tech Park in Shanghai, starts with five employees. Dependent on future collaboration agreements, IMEC China will attract researchers to closely collaborate with the local companies on the joint development projects.

IMEC China and Huali signed a collaboration agreement on 65nm CMOS chip technology with Huali. A team of Huali and IMEC researchers will fine-tune IMEC's 65nm base process at IMEC's research facilities in Leuven, Belgium, to meet the specifications defined by Huali.

"This collaboration with Huali proves that our technologies are valuable for the Chinese market. We are looking forward to expand our collaborations with the huge high-tech potential of China;" said Luc Van den hove, president and CEO of IMEC. "I would like to thank the Zhangjiang High-tech Park for their support in establishing IMEC China."
