re: Qualcomm joins IMEC core CMOS R&D program

It certainly was the case that most of the companies that are mentioned have researchers on secondment to Leuven, Belgium. This gives them the opportunity to run wafers on EUV machines...test structures and so on. A lot of effort goes into defining the scope of the intellectual property so that the companies know which bits are communal IP which all the participants get to share.

So resistor what is your opinion about this decision by Qualcomm? If IP generation at a research institute is a complication, what does Qualcomm expect from this collaboration? is it only a sort of elite club or you think that something good will come out from this joint research? I am based in EU so I am welcoming any initiative that will help Europe not to be relegated at the periphery in the semi world

A research institute is essentially a technology development insurance company. Companies of course want exclusive licenses, which does make IP generation at a research institute a complication.

I believe its mostly like jointly funding the research. IMEC will be hiring personnel and doing the research .. IP shared among investors..

Sounds like good news for the nanoelectronics research institute IMEC. What I'm curious about is how all these companies will be collaborating. Is the institute serving as facility where research can be done (like a machine shop renting out space for development) or are the participating companies jointly funding research. Sounds like an intellectual property challenge - especially with all the cross licensed patents already in play.
