About us


Nanusens is pioneering sensors built inside CMOS. Nanusens patent pending technology shrinks MEMS sensors and builds nanoscale sensors (NEMS – Nano Electro Mechanical Systems) along with the control electronics using standard CMOS processes. This creates single chip solutions that are significantly smaller than the equivalent multi-package MEMS. The freed-up space can be used for larger batteries for longer operational life battery or additional features. Many different sensors can be built into the same tiny chip to enhance the user experience and differentiate products without taking up more space. Its expertise and pending patents place it as the uncontested leader in this technology that will revolutionise the next generation of sensors.

Founded in 2014 by Dr. Josep Montanyà, and Dr. Marc Llamas, Nanusens is headquartered in London, England with Research and Development offices in Barcelona, Spain and Shenzen, China. It leverages the research and expertise developed by the founders’ previous company, Baolab Microsystems. Nanusens is VC funded by Inveready (www.inveready.com/venturecapital/), Caixa Capital Risc (www.caixacapitalrisc.es/en/) and Dieco Capital (www.dieco-capital.com), and crowdfunded via Crowdcube.
