INEX is a microfabrication facility. We do contract development, manufacturing and commercialisation for specialist electronic devices, microsystems and nanotechnology.

We work with technology innovators and systems integration firms worldwide. We develop and commercialise new technologies and products.

INEX is based in the Herschel Annex, Kings Road. This is an ideal location for bespoke process development. We can supply MEMS and specialist electronic device solutions.

We received funding from a central University fund (nanoLAB Impact Initiative Account). This covers labour-related activities.

Materials are still chargeable. Acost centre will need to be provided on the Work Request Form to cover this.

Your project will be assessed by INEX engineers. If, after these discussions, your project does not go ahead, you might be charged for the engineers' time.

Please make sure that discussion time is noted in your application.
