The Microprocessors and Digital Systems Laboratory (MicroLab) of the National Technical University of Athens carries out research and educational activities on designing and implementing digital and embedded/microprocessor systems.

The MicroLab is organised in three groups, the embedded/microprocessor design group, the VLSI design group and the design automation group. It is mainly involved in the implementation of digital systems, from system level up to chip level, using the most advanced and modern technologies and methodologies available, ranging from microprocessors and microcontrollers, embedded systems development boards, signal processors, special purpose ICs and FPGAs, to the actual design of VLSI Application Specific ICs (ASICs).

The basic research activities of MicroLab target embedded applications for multimedia applications, wireless/wired network applications, data acquisition, telecommunications, data encryption and compression, medical applications and consumer electronics.
