ASIC manufacturing in CMOS (6 nm - 0.35 micron)

As a leading TSMC Value Chain Aggregator (VCA), imec offers you access to an extensive range of mature and cutting-edge technologies. And as a main partner of EUROPRACTICE we also support technologies from other foundries, such as X-FAB, UMC and On Semiconductor. Along with the variety of technologies, you can choose from a range of options – including FinFET logic, embedded memory, mixed signal as well as other dedicated processes for power devices and image sensors.

All this comes with the proven, high-quality production guarantee that you can expect from foundry partners leading in semiconductor industry.



Imec’s unique GaN-on-SOI technology provides full isolation between power devices, drivers, control and protection circuits. This enables the fabrication of complex single-chip GaN power ICs.

Compared to traditional silicon-based processing, innovative compound semiconductor processes offer higher power density and faster switching capabilities in very small form factors. Imec’s 200 V and 650 V GaN-on-SOI technology is offered in the form of a Multi-Project Wafer service.
