Nanusens Ltd. is a UK start-up based in London, Barcelona and Shenzhen, venture backed by Inveready, la Caixa SCR, Dieco Capital and Crowdcube, among other investors. Its founding team has more than 12 years of experience designing MEMS in CMOS. Our mission is to develop and commercialize MEMS sensors built in standard CMOS processing, offering small size, low cost, high performance and reliability, targeting the mobile, wearable and IoT markets.


We use standard CMOS plus a very simple and low cost post-process to build our MEMS sensors inside.This gives use a cost advantage, leveraging the economy of scale behind CMOS, plus the ability to build sub micron features and located attached to the electronics, which allows us to achieve small sizes, together with high performance and extreme reliability.

Leveraging more than 12 years of research, at Nanusens we have the technology to use standard CMOS, plus a very simple and low cost post-process to build our MEMS sensors inside.


We perform extensive reliability tests to our devices to ensure they qualify beyond the industry standards. Our tests include thermal cycling and storage, humidity, vibration, shock and many more.



Founded in 2014, Nanusens is pioneering the development of nano-scale sensors (NEMS – Nano Electro Mechanical Systems) that shrink MEMS sensor sizes by an order of magnitude into the nano-realm. Nanusens patented technology creates the NEMS within the chips using standard CMOS processes thereby reducing costs and sensor size.

Nanusens is VC funded by Inveready (, Caixa Capital Risc ( and Dieco Capital (, and crowdfunding via Crowdcube.


We are setting up an office in Shenzhen to boost our R+D activities, in MEMS, microelectronic design and firmware. At the same time we will provide local support in China, and a close relationship with our customers and providers in Asia.
