The Boston University Electronics Design Facility designs and builds advanced electronics in support of research science and education. The EDF develops a broad range of instrumentation, from small “black box” circuits for a lab to large systems. Areas of specialty include RF, low-noise circuits, programmable logic and impedance controlled fine-line multi-layer printed circuit boards (PCB). Since 1986 the EDF has contributed to research at the Framingham Heart Study, Fermi National Lab, CERN, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and many other sites.
