The Integrated Center of Microelectronics Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur

To develop the microelectronics and its applications


CIM PACA consists of three platforms of co-operative research (Design, Characterization, Microphone-Packs) create between 2005 and 2006.


  • To reinforce and develop synergies between public laboratories of research and industrial actors in order to reduce at all the costs of R & D,
  • To open the access of research to regional SME,
  • To become a SCS Cluster of excellence for the innovation and the industrialisation of the communicating objects made safe such as the mobile phones, the smart cards or the electronic labels,
  • To ensure the perenniality and the development of the microelectronic sector in area Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.

3 platforms

With the technical plan each platform has the role of promoting the innovation and competitiveness for a scientific community and industrial well defined:


The platform “Design” is used the creators as electronic chips which constitute the heart of the secure communicating objects
