The Interuniversity Microelectronics Centre (IMEC) is an independent research centre in microelectronics founded in 1984 by the Flemish Government. IMEC plays an important role in Europe as an independent laboratory, which anticipates the industrial needs in the field of microelectronics. IMEC’s mission is "To perform R&D, ahead of industrial needs by 3 to 10 years, in microelectronics, nanotechnology, design methods and technologies for ICT systems”. IMEC has as objectives to be an "international centre of excellence", to reinforce the local industry, to cooperate intensely with Flemish universities and to provide industrial training in ICT. IMEC’s activities include new chips production processes, microsystems and new electronic components, development of solar cells and plastic electronics, new design methodologies with a focus on embedded systems design for wireless and multimedia tools, and new packaging technologies.
The work in ACTMOST will be performed at IMEC’s Centre for Microsystems Technology (CMST), located at the University of Gent.
The CMST is specialized in electronic interconnection and assembly on various substrates (laminate, thick and thin films, flex and stretch substrates), optical interconnection and opto-electronics packaging, micro-displays and mixed signal IC design, bringing together expertise from electronics, mechanics, physics and chemistry.
