Next Europractice eXtended Technologies and Services: “The access point for the future generation of electronic components and systems”

Objective

The mission statement of NEXTS is to provide the European industry and academia with a platform to develop smart integrated systems, from advanced prototype design to volume production. The latter will be achieved by providing easy and affordable access to a wide range of fabrication technologies and tools complemented with training and support to the customer in all critical steps which are needed. NEXTS will act as a true one-stop shop for technologies enabling fully integrated systems and providing direct routes for industrial up-scaling of those systems and consequently it will sustain and grow jobs in Europe in the areas of design and fabrication of microelectronic component and systems.
The partners of the NEXTS proposal have already a vast experience and strong position in providing access to microelectronic technologies. Its predecessor EUROPRACTICE has supported the European academic sector with CAD tools and IC prototyping for over 25 years, and its partners have already supported SMEs with MPW and small volume services for over 15 years. The new consortium has been extended with CMP (Circuits Multi Projects) and TYNDALL who will provide additional access to foundry services and more importantly to system integration capabilities.
NEXTS will ensure that the European industry grows the captured value from the development, fabrication and deployment of electronic smart systems and remains a global leader. As a value chain aggregator, NEXTS aims to close the gap between the supply- and demand- side for electronic smart systems in virtually all applications domains. Therefore, it provides maximum transformative impact to all sides of the value chain.
