University Researchers Get Testing "Collaboratory"


TORONTO – CMC Microsystems has launched a Canada-wide initiative to bring state-of-the-art test equipment and techniques online for university researchers.

 The first of its kind in the world according to Dr. Brian Barge, president and CEO of CMC Microsystems, the testing “collaboratory,” valued at $23 million, will enable university researchers to access some of the best available resources to test and validate high-performance microelectronics and photonics designs.

“This equipment is leading industrial equipment, being made available to universities across the country, a world first, to the best of my knowledge,” Barge said. “This means students and professors are doing more relevant work and Canada is doing work in an important area.
