Europe adds to chip pilot line support list
The European Commission has announced four pilot line projects covering technologies from LEDs to 450-mm diameter wafers that it intends to support in addition to the previously announced project on fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator (see Europe backs FDSOI fabs).

The five chip manufacturing pilot line projects are part of the Europe Electronics strategy announced on May 23 (see Europe launches $12 billion chip support campaign). The five projects involve 128 companies drawn from 20 countries.

The European Commission, the administrative arm of the European Union of 27 member states, said it will provide 100 million euro (about $130 million) towards a total funding of over 700 million euro (more than $900 million) to support these five pilot lines. The total funding includes contributions from member states and industry and most of the projects run from the beginning of 2013 to the end of 2015.
