From Technology to Application

The exceptional Dutch semiconductor ecosystem contains the complete value chain, including research, design, development as well as equipment and production. Distinctive Dutch companies and knowledge institutions have competences in the these applications areas:

  • Automotive/Smart mobility products
  • Medical technology
  • Identification and security
  • Energy
BCS supports the Dutch ecosystem by stimulating cooperation and initiating new innovation projects, and by facilitating crossovers between semiconductor enabling technology and various applications, in Technologies meet Applications sessions, known simply as the TemAs

Currently BCS is the formal project leader of the I2I Project (Innovation to Industrialization for Advanced Micro & Nano Systems). I2I builds competences with micro and nano technology for medical applications. It is focusing on developing and industrializing new innovative technologies for various diagnostics devices, as well as for space applications. See I2I Project overview for more details.

In 2013 BCS is starting to investigate the feasibility of new crossovers between semiconductors as enabling technology and applications in the health, automotive and energy sectors.
