The European Commission (EC) will seed-fund an integrated project called NANOCMOS, aimed to pioneer the necessary changes in materials, processes, device architectures, and interconnections to keep pushing the limits of semiconductor performance and density. Participants in the project will be charged with demonstrating the feasibility of 45-nm CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) logic technology in 2005, while simultaneously starting research activities for the next-generation 32- and 22-nm technology nodes. The results of NANOCMOS project are expected to lead the way to entirely new applications for the information society.
