The Laboratory of Electronics was established in 1975 (No. 219, ΠΔ 671, 8-10-1975). Since then, it has been active in various fields of design and implementation of Electronic Systems, as it can be seen from the numerous relative publications in refereed international journals and conferences as well as by its participation in national and European research projects.
