Engineering Research Center for Wireless Integrated Microsystems


Engineering Research Center for Wireless Integrated Microsystems

NSF Engineering Research Center for Wireless Integrated Microsystems (ERC WIMS) was formed in 2000 through the collaboration of the University of Michigan (UM), Michigan State University (MSU), and Michigan Technological University. This partnership combined UM's programs in sensors and microsystems with MSU's leadership in materials, especially in diamond and in carbon nanotubes, and Michigan Tech's expertise in packaging, micromilling, and hot embossing.

The center is funded by the National Science Foundation. Additional contributions came from the state of Michigan, the three partnering core universities, other federal agencies, and a consortium of about twenty companies. The ERC WIMS works on merging micropower circuits, wireless interfaces, biomedical and environmental sensors and subsystems, and advanced packaging to create microsystems that will have a pervasive impact on society during the next two decades.
