Microelectronics Support Centre
25 Oct 2022



We are dedicated to stimulating the use ​of modern electronic design techniques and tools in academic institutions throughout Europe​​.



Microelectronics design support ​at the 
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory
We support these institutions to enhance their microelectronic and microsystem design, research, and training capabilities. We facilitate this by offering a comprehensive range of services including technical consultancy, access to industry-leading electronic design tools and dedicated training courses to more than 600 academic institutions across Europe.

Our lab is located in building R25 at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and contains the workstations that we use to support EUROPRACTICE ​users. Equipped with state-of-the-art EDA (Electronic Design Automation) tools, these machines allow us to replicate any design environment and efficiently resolve users' problems. Our facilities also include a lecture room that allows up to 15 concurrent course attendees to attend lectures and carry out lab exercises on an isolated network, providing access to EDA tools and design kits without risk.

More information can be found on our dedicated website.
