µSystems Group

µSystems (microSystems) Research Group

The µSystems (microSystems formerly Microelectronics System Design) group is built on Newcastle's traditional strengths in microelectronics design, with the aim of using their synergy to tackle the challenges of rapidly evolving pervasive applications, such as Internet of Things, Autonomous Devices and Bio-implantable Microsystems.

Expertise in the Group spans circuits, architectures, algorithms, and systems, as well as design automation tools, with particular emphasis on methodologies for designing systems with low to zero energy footprints, and converting energy to computation and communication with maximum energy utilization in a wide band of operating conditions.

The group involves seven academic staff and seven research associates, with nearly 30 PhD students, creating a critical mass to cover both fundamental and applied research in complex microsystems engineering.
