Tokyo, Japan -- In the presence of his Royal highness Prince Philip of Belgium, Tohoku University (Sendai, Japan) and imec signed a collaboration agreement during the Belgian economic mission to Japan. Under the agreement, Tohoku University and imec will work closely together in various common areas of research, learning from each other’s expertise and leveraging each other’s strengths.

The collaboration agreement sets the framework for future collaboration projects between imec and Tohoku University where students, research staff, and professors will be exchanged between both organizations. Moreover, the agreement enables the exchange of samples between imec and Tohoku University, and sets the lines for joint research on specific topics. In the past five years, the 2 partners already collaborated on advanced interconnects, MEMS (micro-electromechanical systems) packaging and low-power sensor circuit readout design. In the future, the collaboration will be expanded to MRAM (magnetic random access memory) process technology, 3D integration technology, biosensors and wireless communication.

Imec aims to set up strategic collaborative relationships with world-class universities that excel in research areas where imec is also conducting studies, and where collaboration is mutually beneficial. The collaboration will also benefit from imec’s state-of-the-art 200 mm and 300 mm cleanroom facilities.
