Minima Processor enters into partnership with and NXP Semiconductors


Minima Processor, a start-up founded in 2016 as one of the results of the ECSEL JU “Things2Do” project, just announced a newly established partnership with NXP Semiconductors N.V. This collaboration will deliver ultra-low-power digital signal processing intellectual property (IP) solutions for a wide range of applications.

The partnership will allow Minima to offer NXP users a lower-energy implementations enabled by its IP. It will also enables NXP to enhance its product portfolio by directly applying Minima’s IP to its DSP solutions.

THINGS2DO has just concluded its four year run in January 2018. It was a pilot line project, focused on building the Design & Development Ecosystem for FD-SOI-technology. This technology is uniquely positioned to take advantage of some very distinct strengths of the European Semiconductor Industry. In THINGS2DO, the innovation is the usage and full exploitation of 28nm and 14nm FD-SOI CMOS technology platforms developed within the ENIAC KET Pilot Line project PLACES2BE, to explore a large set of society critical applications.

Minima Processor continuous engagement with mid-sized and large semiconductor companies is one example of bringing together large companies, world-class European research and technology organizations linked with higher education research labs, and SMEs, creating a unique ecosystem enabling cutting-edge innovation thanks to ECSEL JU support.
