Process IP

Acorn’s advanced semiconductor technologies were developed with guidance from some of the foremost industry experts including former Fortune 500 chief scientists.

As today’s system designers approach the limits of Moore’s Law, Acorn is addressing and solving some of the industry’s most significant semiconductor technology challenges and roadblocks. Among Acorn’s process IP innovations is a proprietary semiconductor strain technology that boosts performance for both legacy and future FDSOI devices, metal-semiconductor junction technologies that dramatically improve transistor contact resistance and patented germanium laser technology, which promises a silicon-compatible solution for photonics on a chip overcoming performance-limiting interconnect bottlenecks that also cause excessive power consumption.
