EU Signs €145bn Declaration to Develop Next Gen Processors and 2nm Technology

Hey listen up ALD, Santa is coming - A lot of EU funds coming in bringing Europe back in the leading edge Semiconductor game. Thank you Matthieu Weber for sharing these wonderful news in these bad times.

In a major push to give Europe pride of place in the global semiconductor design and fabrication ecosystem, 17 EU member states this week signed a joint declaration to commit to work together in developing next generation, trusted low-power embedded processors and advanced process technologies down to 2 nm. It will allocate up to €145 bn funding for this European initiative over the next 2-3 years.

While I am at it, check the planned invest for Europe in the latest Semi equipment forecast. Yes I have double checked, Europe is rolling back into the game as we speak. Following 300 mm fabs are gearing up:

  • Globalfoundries Fab1 in Dresden Germany
  • STMicro Corlles in Grenoble France
  • Infineon Dresden, Germany
  • Infineon Villach, Austria
  • Bosch Sensortech Dresden, Germany
  • Intel Leixlip,

The following results reflect market size in billions of U.S. dollars. New equipment includes wafer fab, test, and A&P. Total equipment does NOT include wafer manufacturing equipment. Totals may not add due to rounding. Source: SEMI December 2020, Equipment Market Data Subscription
