Imec, Coventor partner to drive advanced CMOS process development through virtual fabrication

Imec researchers using Coventor’s SEMulator3D platform to model and optimize 7nm manufacturing technology

LEUVEN, Belgium & CARY, North Carolina – October 28, 2014 – Belgian nanoelectronics research center imec has announced a joint development project with Coventor, a leading supplier of semiconductor process development tools. The collaboration will enable faster and more optimized development of advanced manufacturing technology in the 3D device architecture era, extending down to imec’s 10- and 7-nanometer (nm) processes.

Imec and Coventor Partner Up
Today imec and Coventor announced a joint development project for 10nm and 7nm process development. Imec, which is in Leuven Belgium, is a partner with pretty much all the semiconductor companies that are planning work at these advanced nodes. It mostly does pre-competitive research and development. This type of research is very expensive for any one semiconductor company to carry out so it makes sense to share the investment across the entire industry. It will be interesting to see whether the GlobalFoundries acquisition of IBM’s semiconductor business changes the landscape since historically IBM has done a lot of research themselves, and those researchers now work for GF. Imec is a big operation with a staff of over 2000 people, including 670 industrial residents and guest researchers.

Coventor SEMulator3DImec and Coventor, the process development tool vendor, are to co-develop 10nm and 7nm 3D CMOS processes.
To adopt the 7nm node, the industry needs to select the optimal layout, as well as optimise process step performance and control methodology. Using Coventor’s SEMulator3D platform, engineers from Imec and Coventor are working together to reduce silicon learning cycles and development costs by down selecting the options for development of next-generation manufacturing technologies.
