Design of highly integrated microchips with 65-nanometer and finer technology norms; manufacturing of web cameras and intelligent network video surveillance cameras

ELVEES, the project applicant, is putting finishing touches on a design center at its location on the outskirts of Moscow. There portfolio company ELVEES NeoTech will develop and contract to produce a variety of integrated microcircuits using 65-nanometer norm technology and later—45-nanometer. An entire line of innovative products is already being created using ELVEES’s microchips: surveillance cameras with integrated signaling, web cameras, and terminals for professional connectivity to GLONASS.

Transition from 65- to 45-nanometer technology will significantly improve technical characteristics of the products. It will provide new functional qualities and reduce the cost of final goods.

Intelligent network surveillance cameras, webcams, and their microcircuits will be created with design center know-how. The center’s products will be oriented primarily to export markets, although use in the domestic market will raise the competitiveness of domestic solutions for security, business monitoring, and more advanced Internet services.
