The Center of Excellence for Advanced Electronics Design & Manufacturing (CAEDM) performs economically significant and market-driven research and development with private sector partners and collaborators. CAEDM is funded as a State of North Dakota Economic Development Center of Excellence. Such centers are designed to partner with private companies to enhance their business, while spurring economic development and job creation in the state. The program provides $1 of state funding for every $2 of company contributions.
CAEDM leverages the $17M infrastructure provided by the NDSU Center for Nanoscale Science & Engineering. As such, CAEDM has unique capabilities in the areas of wireless sensors, electronic systems, electronic miniaturization, surface mount technology, chip-scale packaging, electronic assembly and prototype development.
CAEDM is staffed by more than 60 researchers and developers at facilities in the 55-acre NDSU Research & Technology Park. This professional team is willing to tackle your toughest problems and work across disciplinary boundaries with others in electronics, software, chemistry, physics, coatings, polymeric materials and mechanical engineering. We continually add capabilities and equipment to our list of resources.
