CMC Microsystems: Thirty years of micro-nano innovation

Posted on Mar 11, 2019

Queen's was one of the first Canadian universities actively doing research and training students in integrated circuit design way back in the 1980s. Early potential was hobbled by the lack of facilities for making microchips. This is the story of how Queen's engineering professors collaborated with industry and faculty at other universities to solve that problem and to build CMC Microsystems. It was foundational work leading to the ongoing leadership role of Canadian research and industry in integrated circuit design and manufacture.
