Our Unit provides service to any IFIC research project that has demands in electronics. It also offers service and developments to external companies through contracts and agreements. IFIC experiments develop particle detectors that generate as output electronic signals that have to be recoded. The Unit, through staff and equipment, is ready to support electronic design, prototyping, manufacturing, testing and validation of electronic systems.
In addition, certain detector technologies use microelectronics, as for instance silicon particle detectors. Our Unit provides support in testing chips and silicon structures and in the connection of their microchannels.
The Unit employs two infrastructures −the general electronics lab (90 m2) and the clean room (80 m2 in two areas, 10,000 and 1,000 classes, ISO7 and ISO6) for support in microelectronics.
