The DUALLOGIC, NANOSIL and REALITY projects aim to create faster and bigger electronic chips to power consumer electronic products.
The DUALLOGIC project will investigate the use of different channel materials to make chips faster and more powerful. The project will, for the first time, investigate using germanium and compound semiconductor channel materials in a single chip on a silicon substrate to increase the performance of individual transistors.
The NANOSIL and REALITY projects will commence later in the year.

The projects will be run in collaboration with leading European manufacturers and research institutes. The funding was provided through the first call of proposals in the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Program for collaborative European research in the area of Information and Communication Technologies.
