Duration: November 2017 – April 2022; Coordinator: Roberto Zafalon (STMicroelectronics); ARCES Principal Investigator: Prof. Claudio Fiegna.

R3-PowerUP aims at establishing the first 300mm Pilot Line in Europe for Smart Power and discrete power devices featuring 90nm lithography for high-density logic, analogue and power devices and embedded Non Volatile Memories for the realization of complex Systems-on-Chip. As such, it will fill the existing gap in the availability of 300mm Pilot Lines in Europe, which covers only Logic CMOS and discrete power devices.

The goals of the project are: 1. to develop and demonstrate a brand new 300mm advanced manufacturing facility for 90nm Smart Power technology, configured as a multi-KET Pilot Line (i.e. Nanoelectronics, Nanotechnology, Advanced Manufacturing) 2. to improve productivity and competitiveness of integrated IC solutions for Smart Power and power discrete technologies. 3. to support a variety of applications in the Automotive and industrial domains.

ARCES participates to the project as third part of IU.NET consortium.
