About us

BACKGROUND

Microelectronics is a key technology for digitalization of critical businesses and Finland’s techno-economic value creation.

Microelectronics education, research and development produces knowledge-assets that our industry uses in all verticals to differentiate in global markets.

Finland’s microelectronics ecosystem drives significant revenue, innovation, and international collaboration value – 30+ years of systematic R&D has placed us in one of the leading nations to create, design and utilize microelectronics in the world.
 

Microelectronics has been chosen as the EU's priority technology with initial €50 Billion investment (2022).

Design of microelectronics and its’ derivative ICT products are Finland's most competitive advantages.

Our excellence and expertise is in the fabless chip design and specialized manufacturing:

A highly advanced and innovative microcircuit and component design and pilot manufacturing can be found only in selected centers globally.

SOLUTIONS

Everything in modern societies runs on chips - Microelectronics comprises the study and manufacturing of very small (micrometer-scale or smaller) electronic designs, often made of semiconductors. Microelectronics devices are tiny workhorses that hide inside consumer and capital goods.

Out of sight they make normal life run smoothly, without them everything would crash down. We are now living in a time of great global upheaval; it is important to take care of our nationally and internationally essential activities and expertise. Microelectronics and related technologies are also part of critical technologies related to national security and defense.
