L'INES est un remarquable succès,” avait-il déclaré. INES II, on est d'accord. Cela veut dire qu'on passera à 500 chercheurs, qu'on augmentera le potentiel. Je vous le dis de la façon la plus claire. L'Etat est derrière vous. Allez, passez à la seconde étape. Faites INES II. La France décide d'investir dans le photovoltaïque sur la durée, dans le long terme. Il n'y a aucune raison que nos amis allemands fassent mieux que nous en matière solaire.”

5) GlobalFoundries could be the elusive Eurofoundry, and more If Infineon could be persuaded to follow STMicroelectronics and switch outsourced IC manufacturing to GlobalFoundries in Dresden, we would be some of the way along the path to creating a Eurofoundry that would keep advanced digital CMOS manufacturing in Europe.

LONDON — SEMI has claimed that its campaign for greater recognition of, and support for, chip manufacturing in Europe is paying off. Evidence for this will come Sept. 23, SEMI said, when it expects the European Commission's Directorate General for Enterprise & Industry will produce a communication recognizing the importance of Enabling High-Tech” industries.

The European branch of industry body Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI) has been campaigning for greater recognition of, and support for, chip manufacturing in Europe.

The campaign has included a number of elements including: one-to-one meetings with Members of the European Parliament; organization of a site visit for 20 bureaucrats from the European Commission to the IMEC R&D center at Leuven, Belgium; sponsorship of a seminar to the European Commission by Malcolm Penn of Future Horizons.

SEMI has re-iterated that the European manufacturing base is shrinking as companies outsource device manufacturing to other regions, mainly to Asia. But SEMI has produced data to demonstrate the incentives, R&D funding, workforce development programs and favorable regulatory environment, that governments in other regions offer.

SEMI is urging the European Union and the member states to develop a pan-European policy for the semiconductor industry.

In particular SEMI wants the EU to review the state aid rules and provide public support for manufacturing in the form of public loans with favorable interest rates, direct incentives, business and corporate tax exemptions and subsidies for land, building, facilities and utilities.

Intel is moving full speed ahead with devices for the mobile markets. At the event, the company dismissed the notion that netbooks are taking away business from traditional notebook markets. Intel sells the Atom for netbooks and traditional x86-based processors for notebooks. Wall Street is somewhat critical of the Atom processor, which has lower margins than its other x86 processors.

The netbook and notebook are two different markets, said Mooly Eden, corporate vice president and general manager of the Mobile Platform Group at Group. ''The majority of netbooks are secondary devices,'' he said.

He also claimed that the next-generation Atom platform, dubbed PineTrail, is not late. ''PineTrail is on schedule,'' he said.

Others are not so sure about the impact of Atom. There is ''some cannibalization'' between the netbook and notebook, said Nathan Brookwood, principal of market watcher Insight64.

MUNICH, Germany — In the competitive foundry landscape, Globalfoundries might be not a leader in terms of volume, but in any case it is a leader in terms of technology, finds Gartner analyst Bob Johnson.
