Workshop Event Showcases our Energy Harvesting Research11th February 2013
Our project on 'Holistic Energy Harvseting' has now come to an end, and we held a workshop at Imperial College London on 11 February 2013 to showcase the project's demonstrators and research findings.

Attendees found out about the project's objectives and achievements, following by an interactive showcase of the project's demonstrators and research outputs. A particular emphasis of the event was giving attendees the opportunity to interact with the project's researchers and academics. In the afternoon, a series of technical seminars discussed various areas of the research in more depth. The day was designed to give attendees the flexibility to either drop-in for the project overview and demonstrations, or to come for the full day and get the full holistic experience!
The three-year project 'Next-Generation Energy Harvesting Electronics: Holistic Approach' was funded by the EPSRC In 2009, and involved over 25 researchers at four universities (the University of Southampton, Newcastle University, Imperial College, and the University of Bristol) in partnership with four industrial companies (Dialog Semiconductor, Diodes Incorporated, ARM, and Mentor Graphics). The research joined together different research fields, including energy harvesting and MEMS processing, efficient power-conversion electronics, low-power embedded computing systems, simulation and electronic design automation.

Stuart's Internship on Energy Harvesting30th September 2011
This summer, one of our undergraduate electronic engineering students, Stuart Barrow, worked with me for three months on the pioneering EPSRC-funded project on "Next Generation Energy-Harvesting Electronics - A Holistic Approach". Stuart developed an ultra low-power system that analyses vibrations and transmits them wirelessly. The photo shows Stuart testing his system on a car engine - the hardware on the engine is detecting vibrations, processing them, and transmitting them wirelessly to a lap... [more]
21 Lectures Delivered in Malaysia!26th October 2014
I have just returned from a fortnight's intensive teaching visit to the University of Southampton's Malaysia Campus (USMC), at EduCity@Iskandar Nusjaya.
At the campus, I gave 21 lectures to students over 8 days, primarily on Digital Electronics, as part of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree that we deliver there.
Our four year 2+2 MEng EEE degree will see the students spend the first two years studying in Malaysia before transferring to Southampton, UK, for the final two year... [more]
