Pilot line for advanced nonvolatile memory technologies for automotive microcontrollers, high security applications and general electronics


The PANACHE project objective is to set-up a pilot line for embedded Flash technology design and manufacturing platform for the prototyping of innovative μcontrollers in Europe. The main goal is to build the basic blocks of the technology node after 40nm; with the ambition to achieve a prototyping maturity for a new BEOL based nonvolatile memory architecture suitable with the 28 nm node.
