Qualcomm and Belgium's Imec research center announced an extended collaboration agreement to accelerate scaling technologies for logic and memory devices, and Qualcomm will become a core partner of imec. This new agreement involves CMOS research and a new MRAM program.

We already know that Qualcomm is involved with MRAM research, but this is the first official announcement. Back in November 2012 Imec announced STT-MRAM collaboration with Tokyo Electron and Canon Anelva.
