MCCI focuses on delivering high impact research for the semiconductor industry.
MCCI is a national technology centre that focuses on delivering high impact research for the semiconductor industry. Funded by Enterprise Ireland and the IDA, MCCI’s role is to generate innovative technologies. The centre works collaboratively in microelectronics circuit design to improve the performance of mixed-signal circuits required by their industry partners. MCCI’s research focus is on mixed-signal, analogue and RF circuits. Projects have algorithm, digital design, IC architecture or system architecture components. Enterprise Ireland and IDA have approved a further €10m in funding for MCCI for the next five years. The technology centre has also competitively won funding from industry and Europe, under the Horizon 2020 programme, bringing total investment into microelectronic circuit research to €9m per annum. The centre is committed to the development of an engineering talent pipeline for the global semiconductor industry.
The centre has high performing teams based in Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork, Munster Technological University, University College Dublin University of Limerick, Maynooth University and IT Carlow
We work on collaborative projects in the microelectronics circuit design space with an emphasis on mixed-signal, Analogue and RF circuits. Projects may have algorithm, digital design, IC architecture or system architecture components to them where these can lead to improved performance of mixed-signal circuits.
