History of the Institute of Electronics

The Institute of Electronics was founded in 1973. We have a long lasting expertise in designing and prototyping electronic systems with special emphasis on signal/image processing and analysis, real time DSP implementations, and pattern recognition.
Our current research activities concentrate on:

  • biomedical signal and image analysis,
  • medical electronics,
  • textronics,
  • microelectronics,
  • human computer-interaction,
  • wearable computing,
  • thermography,
  • telecommunications.

The Institute employs 27 academic staff, including 7 professors, who supervise the research of 25 PhD students and offer the lectures, seminars and workshops in Polish and English. The Institute regularly takes part in international cooperation programmes – COST, 7FP, Erasmus LLP, bilateral. We closely collaborate with industrial partners: Microsoft, Orange, PiProject, Satel, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Texas Instruments, TME, TomTom.

Since 2003 the Institute has been located in a redesigned and renewed XIX-th century  F.W. Schweikert wool mill.


Medical Electronics Division

Research activities of the Division concentrate on:

• processing and analysis of biomedical signals and images • design of human-machine interfaces and electronic aids for the disabled • applications of internet technologies and data security systems, biometry • applications of computational intelligence in medicine and engineering • design of microcontroller and embedded DSP and FPGA systems

Communications Division

The research of the Division is focused on:

• electromagnetic wave propagation modelling • modelling and design of antennas and antenna systems • modelling and design of radio communication systems including ad-hoc networks • automation of complex measurement procedures e.g. in electromagnetic compatibility • modelling, design, and testing of specialised integrated circuits.

Electronic Circuits and Thermography Division

The Division specializes in thermo-optical systems, thermal and video camera interfaces (PCI, PCMCIA, USB, FireWire) and image acquisition and analysis software. The research activities also concern the study and modelling of heat and mass transfer in electronic systems and power devices using thermography as a verification tool. The Division carries out the research and development in the area of design and modelling of switching power converters with thyristors and field-controlled devices like MOSFET, IGBT or MCT, hybrid intelligent power modules (IPM) and control and measurement circuits for power devices.
