MCCI focuses on delivering high impact research for the semiconductor industry. They are the single point of contact for industry to access academic microelectronic research and provide their members with an open innovation collaborative model that develop solutions that push state of the art innovation. The centre supports their researchers by providing them with a path for commercialisation for research with EDA tools, methodologies, processes and infrastructures across multiple application areas.
Funded by Enterprise Ireland and the IDA, the centre focus is to generate innovative technologies.
The centre has an annual research revenue in excess of €8.1million and a team of over 90 researchers and engineers across Tyndall National Institute, UL and UCD, collaborating on more than 50 research projects.
They work on collaborative projects in the microelectronics circuit design space with an emphasis on mixed-signal, analogue and RF circuits. Projects may have algorithm, digital design, IC architecture or system architecture components to them where these can lead to improved performance of mixed-signal circuits.
