|The CCNI Approach for Nanoelectronics
CCNI’s integrated approach connecting virtual and physical nanofabrication is essential as manufacturing complexity goes up, exotic materials are introduced, and billions of transistors are integrated in a single chip. The purpose of an integrated approach is to ensure that semiconductor technology is scalable in a cost effective manner for several more generations.
The CCNI will cultivate a broad partnership of university, industry, and government organizations focused on the development and application of new generations of simulation technologies on world-class super computers. The CCNI Partners Program has multiple levels designed to engage a broad range of industry, from startups to major corporations, government laboratories, and universities interested in the development and application of computational nanotechnologies.
Nanotechnology focused industries joining the program include: semiconductor manufacturers, systems integrators, equipment makers, software providers, and materials manufacturers. The benefits of membership will include various levels of access to the supercomputing environment, collaboration with research leaders in the computational nanotechnology field, and the ability to help identify research areas for the center. The CCNI, coupled with the excellence in the NY State Capital Region in semiconductor fabrication technology will provide industry a total solution, from simulations to physical device fabrication.
