The device can handle over one hundred channels, to address the next generation of scanners that will require thousands of channels. ST claims that the best technology available today on the market does not allow this level of integration, with current chips typically handling only eight channels.

The development of the technology is one of the results of an advanced European R&D project. In Europe, the EU has stimulated much research and development work in this field through the ENIAC (European Nanoelectronics Initiative Advisory Council) initiative.

Within the ENIAC framework, ST and 17 other European partners have formed the SmartPM (Smart Power Management in Home and Health) consortium to answer this growing need for energy efficiency.

The SmartPM consortium includes companies and academic institutions from nine countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden. The SmartPM partners are working together to develop innovative semiconductor technologies, circuit designs and system architectures.
