Nokia announced that it has collaborated with Tampere University to find a ‘Center of Excellence’ to improve the expansion of System-on-Chip (SoC) custom processors for the ReefShark chipset collection.

The collaboration will be built on the University facility and focus on accelerating the establishment of the technology in the ReefShark chipset portfolio of Nokia. It will also improve the development of proprietary SoCs and the silicon capabilities of Nokia. The Center of Excellence is anticipated to commence from November this year.

The joint venture aims to stimulate the development of proprietary SoC chipsets with their design and manufacture, boost the time-to-market, and build a foundation for technology leadership and a long-term SoC development capability. Additionally, the partnership will target a yearly chip cadence with ecosystem partners and see Nokia bestow to physical implementation and module.

Nokia will also discover areas like machine learning, security hardware development, and artificial intelligence along with open-source hardware-based SoCs. Nokia’s worldwide reach will help Tampere University with future research projects and guide them in their method of educating the engineers of the future.

Business Finland is supporting the project via Nokia’s Veturi initiative that fosters the development of industrial 5G and ecosystem with leading universities and industry partners.
