Tour: Citris Foundry and Invention Lab

The CITRIS Invention Lab is an onsite rapid prototyping and packaging lab that works in conjunction with the Marvell Nanofabrication Lab. Resources consist of an array of traditional prototyping equipment that range from the basic craft tools to machining and electronics instruments. It offers a unique opportunity for researchers on all four CITRIS campuses to create, produce and package a prototype that can be tested and ultimately pitched to potential users, customers and investors.

The CITRIS Invention Lab supports faculty, student and community innovation by providing the knowledge, tools and support to rapidly design and prototype their ideas. The new facility is a vital part of the CITRIS “pipeline” running from the innovative minds of researchers, through CITRIS laboratories, and out into the world.

The 1,300 square-foot lab is located on the first floor of Sutardja Dai Hall in CITRIS headquarters at UC Berkeley. It supports three major functions:

  1. Teaching Engineering and New Media courses on product design, device design and prototyping;

  2. Providing facilities and expert technical support for hardware and software prototyping;

  3. Translating ideas and concepts into new ventures through prototyping support for the CITRIS Foundrystartup incubator.

We will meet at the Sutardja lobby by the elevator and stagger into groups of 20.
