The so-called Chartered@NTU lab is a 100-square-meter facility. An extension of an existing research partnership between NTU and Chartered, Chartered@NTU is situated in NTU's School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Singapore.
The lab will enable technology exchange and collaboration for joint research and development projects. The focus of the research area is leading-edge CMOS process technology and reliability.
NTU's post-graduate students and researchers have started working on projects at the lab with Chartered's research scientists and engineers. Fully operational since August 2007, the lab is staffed by 20 graduate students from NTU and adjunct staff from Chartered.
