|Venture||The strategic innovation programme Electronic Components and Systems:|
|Call||Strategic innovation program Electronic Components and Systems. Competence nodes 2015.|
Purpose and goal
The purpose of the proposed Competence Hub for Integrated Circuits and Systems is to strengthen the Swedish innovation system within electronic systems by providing and preserving key competence and broad support for integrated electronic systems, standard electronic circuits and ASICs. This will be provided by actively working to create the conditions for technical knowledge exchange and cooperation within the value chain, by preserving and developing a Swedish key competence and by insuring continued competence development.
Expected results and effects
The competence hub for integrated circuits and systems will offer a consolidation two areas of competences needed in Sweden today and in the future: the competence to predict the development of standard ASICs that are the very basics for all electronics and the competence to design, specify and order implementation of ASICs where so are needed. The hub will offer support to stakeholders that want to develop new, innovative electronic systems based on the latest available technologies and the joint knowledge associated with the hub.
Planned approach and implementation
The project starts in the beginning of September 2015 and runs over 10 months. The project is coordinated by the Department of Electrical Engineering, Linköping University. The project will run with close cooperation with Acreo Swedish ICT AB in Norrköping. Information from interviews, questionnaires, and workshops with stakeholders will be compiled and put in a context referring to this particular competence hub, other competence hubs, program office. Eventually a report will be delivered which can be used to support a decision on how the hub and the program should be continued.
