The Microelectronics Support Centre is an internationally recognised centre of excellence specialising in modern design methodologies for IC, Photonics (PICs), MEMS, FPGA and electronic systems design.




The Centre is located at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC’s) Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, near Oxford in the UK and consists of a group of experienced microelectronics specialists who form an integral component of the microelectronics design capability of STFC and additionally provide essential services to more than 600 academic institutions across Europe.

The Microelectronics Centre is dedicated to supporting and enabling the widespread use of modern design techniques including  ICs, Photonics (PICs), MEMS, FPGA and electronic systems design  by offering a comprehensive range of services including technical consultancy, access to industry-leading electronic design tools and specialist training courses.

By creating a common infrastructure built on industry standard design tools and flows, coupled with advanced training and support, we enable microelectronics design research and teaching which is relevant to industry’s needs and ideal for collaborative projects.
