CSEM SA (Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology), founded in 1984, is a private Swiss research and technology organization specializing in microtechnology, nanotechnology, microelectronics, systems engineering, photovoltaics, and communications technologies. It plays a key role in encouraging innovation and technology transfer between science and industry. Having founded several start-ups, it contributes to developing Switzerland as an industrial location. Around 400 highly qualified and specialized employees from various scientific and technical disciplines work for CSEM in Neuchâtel, Alpnach, Landquart, Muttenz, and Zurich.

CSEM has built a wide experience in ultra-low-power analogue microelectronics over several decades since it pioneered the field with the development of the first crystal-based oscillator for wristwatches. Since then, CSEM has continued strengthening its know-how in the various areas of integrated circuits and microsystems, recently including various aspects related to the wireless radio communications. This includes expertise in ultra-low-power narrow-band RF transceivers in CMOS, where CSEM has been a pioneer with the realization in 2005 of the first RF and microcontroller SoC operating under 1V supply. CSEM is also active at all levels of communication systems, including hardware, protocol and applicative layers.


Research areas also include reconfigurable radio architectures, antenna design and characterization, development of low-power DSP-based SoC's, and embedded software for energy-efficient wireless communication. CSEM has been involved in several EC projects in FP6 and FP7 in the field of radio microsystems such as WiserBAN and Go4Time. CSEM has also been involved in several “Research for SME” projects such as Wear-a-BAN and IcyHeart.
