Luc Van den hove, President and CEO of imecIMEC has formed a joint development project on advanced chip process technology with the semiconductor company Huali, kick-starting R&D programs in China. IMEC China will be based in the Zhangjiang High-tech Park in Shanghai. IMEC hopes to attract a range of IC companies in the country to gradually build a range of joint development projects.

The partnership with Huali will initially focus on 65nm CMOS process technology, which will aim to fine-tune its 65nm base process 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.”
