Now fully operational, C2MI is a world-class Innovation Center situated in the Northeastern microelectronic corridor where major investments have been made in recent years.

EQUIPMENT

The Center’s strengths are based on a unique combination of highly qualified, onsite researchers, leading edge equipment, and a unique infrastructure.

The 135M$ fleet of equipment is composed of state-of-the-art technologies in the following fields :

– MICRO-ELECTROMECHANIAL SYSTEMS (MEMS)

– ADVANCED PACKAGING

– TESTING AND INSPECTIONS

– RELIABILITY TESTING

– DEVICE CHARACTERIZATION AND FAILURE
ANALYSIS

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

A Scientific Commitee must approve projets before they are initiated.

Joint development agreements must be created when two or more members work together on an intellectual property.

Collaboration researchers and students are required to present their thesis within standard time frames.

Should the project scope fall outside the market segment of the interested parties, intellectual property rights are transferred to those interested in commercialization.

LOCATION

THE NORTHEAST CORRIDOR

C2MI is conveniently located in the heart of North America’s Northeast Corridor, where numerous global industry leaders have invest billions of dollars in microelectronics over the past few years.
