Leader in Integrated ICT Hardware & Systems



Tyndall National Institute is the co-ordinator of the EU-funded ASCENT project which delivers access to nanoelectronics infrastructure in Tyndall and at our partners’ sites in imec, Belgium and CEA-Leti, France.


ASCENT provides fast and easy access to the world’s most advanced CMOS technologies and infrastructure including access to 14nm CMOS device data, nanoscale test chips and device characterisation facilities. This is a unique opportunity to also share best scientific and technological practices, form a knowledge–innovation hub and enable training for new researchers on advanced technology.


ASCENT is establishing a nanoelectronics research network across Europe and, through our Industry Innovation Committee, provides an interface to global industrial leaders in nanoelectronics.


Access through ASCENT is open to all researchers once the results can be published. We have a very simple sign up and application procedure and technical points of contact at each partner site to help you with any questions you may have.


Please join with us in this exciting opportunity by contacting Paul Roseingrave or visiting our website:
