CMC Microsystems Aims to Increase High Tech Manufacturing with FABrIC

CMC Microsystems (CMC) is a non-profit national organization which manages Canada’s National Design Network. They work to enable the creation and application of micro- and nanosystems knowledge and manufacturing capabilities. They are currently focused on a new plan to accelerate high tech manufacturing in the country including specialty semiconductors. 

This project will be headed by 14 project founders from a variety of backgrounds including industry and academia. This project – the Fabrication of Integrated Components for the Internet’s Edge (FABrIC) – is anticipated to flow across 5 years.

This $700 million program is expected to attract $480 million in industrial R&D. It will support large-scale national ecosystems by forming and providing a platform for collaborations between all size corporations, academic institutions, and non-profit organizations. 

The key goal is to lock the intellectual property developed within Canada, helping to secure it in the hardware technology of new products. In order to achieve this, FABrIC is focusing on niche technologies where Canada has proven R&D and manufacturing strengths. These areas include microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), integrated photonics, and specialty semiconductors and quantum devices.
