Photovoltaic technology breakthrough: The science behind achieving 31.25% efficiency
Pioneering research by EPFL's PV-Lab and CSEM published in the Science journal unveils 31.25% efficiency with perovskite-on-silicon tandem solar cells.
Pushing performance with advanced technologies
We are Europe’s leading independent supplier of ultra-low-power (ULP) ASIC design services. From high-performance functional circuit blocks and complete integrated ASICs, to photonic and MEMS components, we provide comprehensive microelectronic design and MEMS manufacturing services.
From mobile communications and portable computing to wearable electronics and the internet of things (IoT)—so many of today’s innovative products are only possible due to advances in semiconductor technology. But driving increases in functionality and complexity also calls for advances in embedded software, connectivity and packaging, as well as ultra-low-power design.
CSEM works with both innovative SMEs and the world’s leading semiconductor companies and OEMs to provide cutting-edge low-power ASIC designs as well as silicon IP licensing
Using state-of-the art EDA tools and design flows, we complement our technologies for analog, mixed-signal, RF, and image sensor design with our expertise in embedded software and smart system integration, enabling hardware/software-optimized smart systems. Our flexible engagement model ranges from initial feasibility studies and IP block development to ASIC design and small-scale manufacturing.
We also provide essential manufacturing services to our partners. Our MEMS powerhouse can turbocharge your microsystems and we can develop high-performance packaging solutions for your photonic components. We characterize and test the reliability of your devices with space-grade approaches. Our broad expertise means we can support you at both the component and system levels.
Semtech and CSEM have a relationship that goes back over ten years. We value CSEM's innovative capability and close collaboration and we hope to continue the strong relationship we have with them.
We leveraged the excellent collaboration with CSEM, including enabling the transfer of know-how that will allow us to use this project as a technology platform for future circuit developments.
We’ve had several projects with CSEM, which have advanced our semiconductor laser products substantially and opened up new commercial opportunities in the area of low linewidth lasers for lidar applications. The discussions with the experts at CSEM have provided us with many new ideas as well as valuable feedback for different applications such as metrology and sensing.
CSEM has a fantastic understanding and knowledge of using optical systems to measure vital signs, and bringing this know-how into our use case has allowed us to make huge improvements in our OptiBP software—and potentially in the global management of hypertension.
