Dear Rob, " SEMICONDUCTOR PROCESS AND INTEGRATION" is one of the 8 "Research, Development and Innovation priorities for 2013" (http://www.eniac.eu/web/downloads/AWP/awp2013.pdf). In this respect "Competitivness through Semiconductor Process Differentiation" is one of its main 3 "Grand Challenges". therefore EU is already clearly aware. In this phase Consortium is looking mainly for the best enaibling technology; costs will be then optimized after a proper industrialization phase. Anyway we trust on our results as the best way to push for a very specific EU mandate on this field.

I agree with Chuck--advancements in power electronics are underrepresented, considering their importance in designs, and could use more coverage.

It is great that last  power  project is making such great effort and it is good that power electronics is also becoming important like software.

Good point, naperlou. We don't hear about power electronics often enough. News from that sector is often eclipsed by news of processors and MCUs. It's good to hear about this effort.

@Angelo, thanks for the post. LAST POWER is the nice way to link private companies, universities, and public research centers.

Angelo, this is an interesting effort.  It is good to see the technology being developed in a diverse set of locations.  I am familiar with STMicro microcontrollers, but have not worked  with your power electronic components.

Will this be law?

Nice article, Angelo. Does the consortium plan to push for an EU mandate on this? Ordinarily, OEMs would look for the best technology at the best price without regard to region -- except inasmuch as distance affects price.
