SPINTEC is a Research Laboratory which goal is to bridge fundamental research and advanced technology towards new paradigms / devices in the emerging field of spin electronics.
INESC Microsistemas e Nanotecnologias (INESC MN) is a private, non-profit Reseach and Development institute created in January, 2002 from the former Solid State Technology group of INESC. INESC MN operates a Class 100/10 cleanroom with optical and e-beam lithography allowing nanoscale device fabrication.
Resulting from the merging of two laboratories (formerly L2MP and TECSEN), the Institute is comprised of 270 scientists in physics, chemistry and micro-electronics and engineers or technicians composed its staff. The laboratory has the required expertise for research and education in materials, microelectronics and nanosciences and supports a wide range of programs including modelling, design, architecture, processes, materials and their physico-chemical properties.
SVTC provides its novel-silicon development customers access to two state-of-the-art, IP-secure development foundries — in San Jose, California, and Austin, Texas — with a full complement of 200 mm (8-inch) and 300 mm (12-inch) advanced CMOS and MEMS fabrication equipment, designed to speed the development of best-of-class solutions.
