The focus of Systems Engineering group is to bring nanotechnology developed at INL into form-factors compatible with applications in the areas of ICT, health, agri-food and environment. The high levels of integration and miniaturization required for such applications can be often achieved via custom-designed microelectronics solutions, in particular CMOS technologies that enable both high-performance and mainstream adoption of the resulting devices. Our mission is to use electronics and microelectronics combined with nanotechnology to solve challenges within the above areas designing and implementing hardware applications that are power, size and cost efficient.
Our aim is to develop complete solutions and systems, either portable or handheld that enable meaningful applications of advanced sensing and actuating technologies in everyday work and life environments. The target level of complexity is integration of these functions into “smart” system-on-chip (SoC) or System-in-Package (SiP) hardware devices.
