AMPER S&C IoT S.L. gladly informs being selected as one of the participants of the recently approved IPCEI effort organized by the European Commission. Under EU State aid rules, an Important Project of Common European Interest (‘IPCEI’) to support research, innovation and the first industrial deployment of microelectronics and communication technologies across the value chain has been approved.
The project, called “IPCEI ME/CT”, was jointly prepared and notified by fourteen Member States: Austria, Czechia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Spain.
As a participant in the IPCEI, S&C will contribute providing design and development using various micro-processing technologies such as ASICs, FPGAs, SoCs, plus embedded software. To achieve the results S&C will engage a team composed of IC (integrated circuit) & SW (software) design experts with more than 30 years of experience developing solutions for leading semiconductor multinationals like SEIKO-EPSON, SIEMENS, and INFINEON, always specializing in turnkey solutions from the initial specifications to the management of production and the delivery, including embedded Linux to maximize system performance.
First novel products may be introduced to the market as early as 2025 and the completion of the overall project is planned for 2032, with timelines varying in function of the project and the companies involved. Around 8.700 direct jobs are expected to be created, and many more indirect ones.
