Research Group

The CEMIC is a research and technology centre that works in the fields of electronic engineering and IT. The CEMIC focuses its efforts on the development of European and national projects, it is proactive in promoting and retaining the loyalty of its industrial partners on R&D projects, it actively pursues policies for the protection of intellectual property, and it has a flexible, multidisciplinary team. There are 51 people working from 4 consolidated research groups by the Generalitat de Catalunya (MIND 2017SGR776, SIC 2017SGR624, SIC-BIO 2017SGR1079 and ISP 2017SGR1721)

The CEMIC covers the entire range of electronic and biomedical engineering and information and communication technologies, combining the study of new materials, technologies, structures, devices and algorithms to obtain new subsystems with more incorporated functionalities. Structure its technological capabilities in the field of:

• Modeling of passive components and functional blocks for electronic, RF and RFID applications

• Development of sensors and biosensors

• Development of biotechnology, bio-electronic systems, in-vivo sensors

• Design of systems and circuits for instrumentation and microsystems based on the integration of electronic and / or optoelectronic sensors and actuators with control circuits and signal processing

• ASICS design

• Intelligent sensing systems, DSS, AI, AUI

• Development of firmware and software for specific applications

Project: Gas Sensors based on Colorimetric Inks for Indoor Air Quality

The aim of the project is the development of a new low power, compact and integrated device aimed at monitoring indoor air quality accessible to any kind of end-user, both economically and technologically. This technology is possible thanks to the novel solution based on the use of a gas-specific colorimetric tag and a low-cost optical reader, that will work together just attaching the tag to the reader, and all of them controlled by a microprocessor-based electronic device and packed in a compact device. The development of this new sensor technology seeks to respond to one of the priorities of the societal challenge, which is obtaining representative measurements and parameters of Air Quality, including the development of alarm systems based on these measures.

As a result, we will have at our disposal new colorimetric indicators targeting a broad range of gases that, differently to those mostly spread in the market (e.g. Dräger glass tubes), are reversible (i.e. are suitable for continuous monitoring) and can be used as printable inks. Consequently, our technology allows for coating any substrate with a colour-changing, gas-specific film using industrial printing techniques, and has thus the potential for reaching extremely low production costs.
