Electronics

Electronics is the enabler of all things digital. It is the hardware and embedded software that allows products and processes to communicate, have power, have intelligence and awareness, be controlled, be automated and operate safely. It’s built into many sectors, including health, aerospace, manufacturing and retail.

The Electech Report estimated that there are over 1 million people employed within 45,000 businesses in the electronics sector, generating revenues of around £100 billion to the UK economy.

The Electronics team helps organisations access expert knowledge, funding opportunities and powerful connections.

Our current focus in this area

Computing

Computing helps produce digital assets and software activity. These can be used by varied sectors such as transport, infrastructure, farming and life sciences.

Driving the Electric Revolution

The Driving the Electric Revolution Challenge, is investing up to £80million over 4 years in business-led innovation projects that enable UK supply chain and manufacturing capability growth in power electronics, machines & drives (PEMD) to facilitate future improvements in productivity, capacity, quality, & efficiency, support the UK’s continued push towards net-zero carbon and catalyse the green economic recovery.

Embedded Systems

An Embedded System is a computer system that plays a role within a larger mechanical or electrical system. Embedded systems control many devices we use everyday like vehicle engine management systems.  They are part of complete devices that often include hardware and mechanical parts.

Power Electronics, Machines and Drives

Power Electronics, Machines and Drives (PEMD) are technologies that enable the control and delivery of electrical energy. These technologies are growing fast and are used across many sectors.

Radio Frequency (RF) Systems

Radio-frequency (RF) electronics and systems is the application of transmission lines, waveguides, electronics, antennas and electromagnetic fields to the design and application of devices that produce or utilize signals within the radio band.

Neurotechnology

From bioelectronic medicine that treat chronic diseases, to brain-computer interfaces that help stroke rehabilitation, neurotechnology will play an increasingly important role in meeting some of the challenges of an ageing society.
