The C2MI has received $8million in additional funding from the Canadian government.
The C2MI are a research and development center working on designing and prototyping microelectronics. Based in Quebec, their work focuses on three main areas:
2. Specialised Circuits & Systems
3. Electronics Assembly
Utilising strong links between academic institutions and numerous electronic companies, the team create new innovations, prototypes and designs. Semtech, IBM and CMC Microsystems are just some of the names working with the C2MI.
The money has been granted thanks to the Centres of Excellence for Commercialization and Research (CECR) program which invests 30 million a year in Canadian innovation. The program creates links between research expertise and the business community to get innovations to the market faster.
“We are very grateful for this renewed support from the government of Canada towards C2MI and its partners, which allow us to grow into an international pole of innovation in microsystems and to continue working in synergy with Canadian SME's and researchers. We are proud to have contributed over the past 4 years, not only to the economic growth but to the recognition of the Canadian expertise while helping several industry sectors with the technological challenges that can be solved with electronic microsystems integration. “– Normand Bourbonnais, President - CEO, C2MI
