The Center for Advanced Microsystems is poised at the cutting edge of research into this new technology, which will bring many new products to market. The possibilities include making appliances and computers energy smart. With a microsystem built in, a television or computer would sense when its not in use and not draw energy until it's activated for use again. In addition to energy saving devices, adaptive microsystems will have many uses in the medical field. Microchips used in labs could make testing more efficient by integrating new data and adapting to new parameters. Physicians systematically could order a variety of tests from a single sample and receive results quicker. The microsystems could also be used to improve cell phone reception. There are thousands of possible uses for adaptive microsystems. CAM will update this site as new ideas are developed and brought to market.
