CMC Microsystems is a non-profit corporation that provides microsystems researchers with industry-calibre design resources, access to state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, and support services. CMC subsidizes trainees to attend Si-EPIC courses and subsidizes Si-EPIC chip fabrication.  Their scientific staff contributes towards the development of design kits, provides instruction at the workshops, provides technical support for design software, merges the trainees’ designs onto a single submission to the foundry, organizes annual meetings, organizes the scholarship application review process, and hosts the on-line Si-EPIC Library.

OPSiS (Optoelectronic Systems Integration in Silicon) is a recently established foundry service, which has access to three state-of-the-art silicon photonics foundries and fabricates the CREATE trainees’ designs.

C2MI (MiQro Innovation Collaborative Centre), Bromont, Quebec is a $218M facility funded by Industry Canada and the Quebec Government and is a partnership between University of Sherbrooke, Teledyne DALSA Semiconductor and IBM Canada. Our partnership with C2MI offers CREATE trainees and partner industries access to pre-commercialization R&D, namely packaging the Si-EPIC chips using industrial manufacturing tools.
