Department of Microelectronics and Computer Science of Lodz University of Technology has high expertise in the field of design of electronic and microelectronic systems for wide range of applications. DMCS design teams participated in large number of national and international scientific research programs, grants and commercial contracts. Many of these works resulted in an introduction of new systems into scientific installations or putting new product into general markets. The paper presents selected works focused on aspects of research on accelerator control systems for high energy physics, nuclear fusion based new energy sources and design of integrated electronics for space applications.
