The semiconductor business has been identified as one of the key enabling technologies for european industrial development by European Comission. LFoundry contributes by developing research projects of european interest through its participation in schemes launched by the commission to address the areas of development identified.
The main objective of Productive4.0 is to achieve improvement of digitizing the European industry by electronics and ICT. Ultimately, the project aims at suitability for everyday application across all industrial sectors – up to TRL8. It addresses various industrial domains with one single approach of digitalization. What makes the project unique is the holistic system approach of consistently focusing on the three main pillars: digital automation, supply chain networks and product lifecycle management, all of which interact and influence each other. This is part of the new concept of introducing seamless automation and network solutions as well as enhancing the transparency of data, their consistence and overall efficiency. Currently, such a complex project can only be realized in ECSEL.
The goal of this project is to develop the technology foundation for advanced optical microscope imaging at a resolution beyond the Rayleigh limit, utilising super-twinning photon states (N-partite entangled states) with de Broglie wavelength at a fraction of the wavelength of a photon in a classical state.
The purpose of this project is to promote best practices (for example, by following up standards) and to identifying gaps in methodologies and potential directions for further investigation to support risk assessment in order to protect human health. The project also aims to initiate communication with stakeholders to support informed decision making and the governance of risks related to the handling of nanomaterials and medical surveillance of the workforce in the semiconductor fabrication process.
INTEGRATE will consider the development of integrated process control and equipment control optimisation tools, together with advanced lot flow control techniques that interact with lower and upper decisions levels but also consider various elements of the fab.
The SILVER project’s objective is the design, development and assessment of innovative and comprehensive approaches to reduce the environmental impact of existing semiconductor manufacturing. The project will focus on the development of innovative solutions for the reduction of water and energy consumption.
The main objective of the LASSIE-FP7 project is to implement large-area and low-cost intelligent SSL modules with high efficiency and high lighting quality, while assessing environmental impact throughout their life cycle.
