Our state-of-the-art facility is open for business on Cardiff University's £300 million Innovation Campus.

The ICS has built a state-of-the-art 8-inch fabrication line adjacent to the Translational Research Hub (TRH).

Part of Cardiff University’s new £300 million Innovation Campus, it will combine cutting-edge research, technology transfer, business development and student enterprise.

The ICS has received over £80 million investment for its new building and equipment including over £30 million of external investment. In addition to the 1500 square metre cleanroom, dedicated characterisation and back end processing areas will enable us to carry out the end-to-end processing of CS wafers up to 8-inches in diameter under one roof and expand our range of industry-standard services.

Our TRH office accommodation sits alongside shared, interactive working zones, laboratories and breakout spaces. Enabling further collaboration between researchers and industry professionals, TRH creates a working environment that attracts and retains the most talented individuals.

The Institute shares the Innovation Campus with Cardiff Catalysis Institute, and Cardiff Innovations@sbarc, a creative base for start-ups. The Institute has access to shared facilities with its neighbours, including a TEDx style auditorium and fabrication lab to trial new manufacturing technologies. Our facilities build on University strengths in the development of semiconductor devices and materials, making us a leading UK centre for CS technologies.
