Enable450 Newsletter

Welcome to Enable450, funded by the European Commission under Objective FP7-ICT-2011-8 with the view to coordinating and supporting standardised actions and preparatory work by the European research, equipment and material companies for the transition to 450mm wafer processing.

The Project Comprises Five Work Packages

  • WP 1 Coordination and Management
  • WP 2 Collection of Requirements
  • WP 3 Standards
  • WP 4 Dissemination
  • WP 5 Link to Global Activities

There are currently eleven members of the project consortium, including Future Horizons.

The newsletter, the first in a series of regular updates as part of the WP4 work package, has been set up to disseminate the Enable450 project progress and results.  It follows on from the Report “Benefits and Measures to Set Up 450mm Semiconductor Prototyping and to Keep Semiconductor Manufacturing in Europe – The role of Public Authorities and Programmes” undertaken by Future Horizons in cooperation with the French consultancy firm Decision under the SMART 2010/062 project for the European Commission.  

Newsletters are available for download below:

Updates are also available from the dedicated website:

The original 450mm Report is available from Future Horizons  

In addition to reporting on Enable450 consortia, the newsletter also highlights recent activities on 450mm related work within Europe, however they are funded, together with news from others working in this field worldwide.
