The Electronics Laboratory was founded in 1968, as one of the four basic Labs in the Department of Physics. Since then, the Electronics Laboratory evolves and develops continuously, being always a well organized research and educational center. This is mainly due to the strong collectivity between its staff members. The Electronics Laboratory (ELLAB) constitutes the main part of the Electronics and Computers Division in the Physics Department of the University of Patras.
Professor T. Deliyannis† (1936-2013) was the first director of the Electronics Laboratory. The second director of the Laboratory was the Professor I. Haritantis, who retired in 2013. The scientific and technical staff in Electronics Laboratory consists of 8 persons, while almost thirty postgraduate students support the research and teaching activities. The activities of the Electronics Laboratory mainly focus on teaching and research. Courses are run both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. At postgraduate level the academic staff of the Electronics Lab runs two M.Sc. courses. The first is part of the main postgraduate program of the Physics department and focuses on “Electronics and Communications (Radioelectrology)” , while the second is held in cooperation with the Computer Engineering & Informatics, Biology and Medical departments and deals with “Electronics and Information Processing”. Teaching electronics at undergraduate level in the Physics Department is mainly concerned with Basic, Digital and Analog Electronics as well as DSP. Furthermore, support is provided to Physics Department in technological topics such as Informatics, Programming and Digital Processing of Information.
A large number of scientific activities are in progress in cooperation with other Laboratories and Institutions worldwide. The main research activities carried out in the Electronics Laboratory focus on Analog Integrated Circuit Design, VLSI Design, Communication and Power Problems in Multi-sensors and Sensor Networks, Collaborative Signal Processing, Information Fusion, Machine Vision and Learning, FPGAs, ASICs, Smart Interfaces, Communication Modules and System-on-Chips (SoCs).
Today, the Electronics Laboratory invests into its students and their inexhaustible resources for innovation and excellence.
