The 10 discoveries of the year in Quebec by Québec Science

Octobre 6, 2017
Aeponyx owes its stroke of genius to two UQAM researchers, Michaël Ménard and Frédéric Nabki, who have combined silicon photonics with electromechanical microsystems (MEMS). “We find these MEMS everywhere. These are tiny mechanical devices that form the gyroscopes, accelerometers or camera sensors of cell phones, for example, “explains […]

At the crossroads of integrated circuits and microelectromechanical systems

June 8, 2017
Frederic Nabki, professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), and member of the Communications and Microelectronics Integration Laboratory (LACIME) and the Microtechnology and Microsystems Laboratory, combines two specialties: analog,  mixed and radiofrequency integrated circuits, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). These two key […]

    Montreal hockey team and UQAM develop puck for visually impaired

Montreal hockey team and UQAM develop puck for visually impaired

October 12, 2015
In partnership with UQAM, the team is helping to develop an adaptive puck they hope will make blind hockey a Paralympic sport.

The tin can has its shortcomings: it doesn’t make noise unless it’s in motion, it doesn’t make noise in the air, and it often […]

Creating a puck for visually impaired

September 23, 2015
Frédéric Nabki, Mounir Boukadoum and Michaël Ménard, as well as students Alexis Albe, Félix-Antoine Leclerc, Mohamed Moharrem and Philip Sheldon, had to ensure that the circuits, batteries and loudspeakers, are sufficiently compact to be incorporated into the puck. Mission accomplished, since the whole was miniaturized inside a […]
