This ambitious regional initiative is intended to foster collaborations between local PACA industry and academia partners on the topics of microelectronic design, though mutualization of equipments, resources and R&D concerns. We are actively participating in the Design Platform (one of the three platforms launched in this context). Other participants are UNSA, CNRS (I3S and LEAT laboratories), L2MP Marseille, CMP-ENSE Gardanne on the academic side, and Texas Instruments, Philips, ST Microelectronics, ATMEL, and Esterel Technologies on the industrial side. , on a project named Spec2RTL. This group of students should be funded on a par basis between industry and local authorities.
We are planning to take part in a number of large projects currently under definition,in the cases of both PACA-based SCS (Secure communicating Solutions), as well as Systemtic located in the Paris area. These labeling were already recognized as supportive in the making of recent national projects (see below).
