Future challenges in electronics

Professor Bashir Al-Hashimi and Professor Neil White, both from the University’s School of Electronics & Computer Science (ECS), are due to deliver their inaugural lectures on Wednesday 14 February in which they will address advances in electronics.

A champion in the quest to improve the reliability of low-power embedded computing systems of the type used in devices such as mobile phones, Professor Al-Hashimi will present a lecture entitled Mobile to Pervasive: A Journey in Electronics Design.

In his talk, Professor Al-Hashimi will discuss the innovative research which has enabled mobile electronics to develop to the point where it has become pervasive and which, in the near future, could contribute to solving some of society’s large-scale challenges in the fields of energy and healthcare.

Professor Neil White, who has hit the headlines recently for his work on the development of the ‘Southampton Hand’, a new prosthetic hand which not only mimics the motion of a human hand, but also has ‘senses’, will demonstrate how screen printing, one of the oldest forms of graphic reproduction, can be used to fabricate sensors. A wide variety of different devices will be covered and examples of their use in some unusual scenarios will be presented.

Professor White’s work on developing self-powered sensors has been well documented and work is currently underway to miniaturise the device to the size of a 5p coin.

Journalists are welcome to attend these inaugural lectures which will be held in the Lecture Theatre, School of Nursing and Midwifery, University Road, University of Southampton at 3.30pm on Wednesday 14 February.
