The SoCC aims to establish a world‐leading research center in high-performance, energy efficient, small form factor, and low-cost electronic systems achieved through innovation in low-power digital processing, wireless communications, power management, and sensor technologies. The Center will directly contribute toward human and intellectual capital underpinning high‐tech job creation and direct local and foreign investment. It will extend the current partnership with local and global industries to address current and future challenges.
The SoCC will harness its faculty and ETIC expertise to conduct basic and applied research to develop novel solutions in circuits and systems to serve applications in a variety of fields including military, healthcare, artificial intelligence, security, space, robotics, and sensing. The need for specialized electronic devices has been the emerging trend in research and the industry, especially for restricted technology (high frequency), mobile, and Internet of Things. The Center will provide an excellent opportunity to enable a highly skilled workforce to drive innovation and entrepreneurship in the UAE’s electronics sector in line with the Abu Dhabi 2071 vision.
