Success Story / Achievements: 
  • MINOLab at Sofia Tech Park. CMES supported the setup of innovative laboratory at Sofia Tech Park - MINOLab (Micro Nano Laboratory).

MINOLab’s activities include:

  • Detection and analysis of faults and failures in micro and nanoelectronics devices, systems, and prototypes at chip level.
  • Design and development at circuit and layout-level; prototyping.
  • Measurements and characterization of integrated circuits, embedded systems, printed circuit boards and devices.
  • Testing and reliability of devices and systems at circuit- and system-level, including embedded systems;
  • Training in micro- and nanoelectronics for employees of companies, interns, students, etc.

 

  • Training and Qualification Center. CMES is currently setting up a professional training center with a goal to develop educational unit for education and training in industry-driven topics.
