The EDCAS group was awarded a funding of PKR 77 Million to become part of the HEC National Research Center for Nano-Technology in Pakistan. This proves to be the recognition of the EDCAS research group as an integral part of the research center for nanotechnology in Pakistan.
The EDCAS group was awarded a funding of PKR 8.25 Million for its Project: A Mid-Range Wireless Power Transfer System For Portable Electronic Devices With Beam Forming from HEC NRPU. The project would result in a system that would be able to transmit power wirelessly from multiple wall mounted transmitter (Tx) modules to a portable small footprint receiver (Rx) Module at a distance of up to 5 Meters.
Organized By WWF- Pakistan, Green Innovation Challenge held a competition encouraging entrepreneurs, by providing them a platform to transform their ideas into ventures with a strong potential to reduce or eliminate plastic waste in Pakistan. EDCAS participated a cost-effective bio-degradable cotton tote bag with embedded electronic smart features including RFID Tag, Temperature Maintained compartment, Energy Harvester circuit and a Tracker. EDCAS made to the final round of the competition.
Funded by the Ministry of Telecom, IGNITE awarded PKR 33.3 Million to the EDCAS group for the Project Titled: Monolithic CMOS Microsystems for Structural, Chemical and Bio Hazard Detection. Achievement of being the largest funded project in the province of Sindh, will produce a smart fusion of micro-sensor-systems, monolithically integrated inside a CMOS microchip, suitable as an autonomous sensing-node of a wireless-sensor-network (WSN).
X-FAB, one of the main IC manufacturers, located in Germany, opened up a global competition in November 2016 for a Voltage-Reference IC, the IC had to pass 475 specifications.EDCAS design met all the specifications and made it through a community consisting 88 teams of designers from 26 countries and secured 1st position
The EDCAS group's design of an LVDS transceiver operating at 2Gbps in 250nm CMOS technology has been selected as the top project in the WaferCAT post-grad University projects design contest organized by KACST, KSA. The EDCAS group will have free-fabrication of their design sponsored by WaferCAT.
