Canada's National Design Network

Canada’s National Design Network (NDN) enables excellent multi-disciplinary research and complex prototype microsystems with the potential to be rapidly commercialized, positioning Canada to be a competitive player in all economic sectors.



Embedded Systems Canada (emSYSCAN) is a 5-year project worth over $50 million, and involves more than 250 university researchers in 37 institutions in Canada. The emSYSCAN project provides platform-based microsystems design and prototyping environments and is based at CMC. emSYSCAN infrastructure will shorten the microsystems development cycle leading to rapid commericalization, publication, and training of highly qualified personnel within a national and international multi-disciplinary research environment.


DMT Microsystems

DMT Microsystems is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CMC Microsystems. Launched in June 2007, DMT Microsystems (DMT) strives to build a path between ideas and commercial products and services.



The effectiveness of Canada’s National Design Network (NDN) is dependent on the interactions between many individuals and organizations in the microsystems community. CMC Microsystems is at the centre of highly successful collaborations that are vital to the evolution of Canada's information economy.
