Micro and Nanoelectronics System (MINES)


Most of the system design at IMEN involves VLSI with CMOS technology. We are now preparing ourselves to get into the submicron and nanometer system design technology where more components will be packed into a more and more tiny space of area. IMEN focus the research in this field on circuits to assist MEMS devices. The strength of the group is academicians in and outside of the faculty and a team of more than a dozen of research postgraduate students (MSc/PhD).
