ISI is involved in both electronics research and fabrication. Our MOSIS service has helped businesses, research institutes and universities design innovative, high-performance integrated circuits – and has brokered low-cost fabrication through our shared services model – for 30 years. Our Advanced Systems group is partnering in seminal biomimetics research to replace damaged brain tissue, among other advances. And our newest research area, Disruptive Electronics, seeks to leverage novel electronics technologies and architecture concepts to create new capabilities in space, high-performance computing and other challenging fields.
- MOSIS has delivered more than 50,000 chip designs to customers ranging from research groups to Fortune 500 corporations. One of the world's first e-commerce vendors – and the first multi-project wafer (MPW) service – MOSIS specializes in prototyping and small-volume production.
- Advanced Systems: low power, high-performance embedded systems, including biomimetics.
- Disruptive Electronics seeks to leverage novel electronics technologies and architecture concepts to create new capabilities in fields such as space electronics, embedded computing, trusted electronics and high performance computing. The organization focuses on CMOS extensions and post-CMOS concepts, radiation-hardened electronics, reliable & robust electronics, 3DIC technology, low power electronics and carbon electronics.
Advanced Electronics is led by John Damoulakis.
