Our History

Electronic Development Institute [ELDI] is a Research Institute under the supervision of National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure [NASENI]. The institute was established by degree 33 of 1992 with these mandates;

  • Re Engineering and Technology Adaptation
  • Microprocessor Embedded Programming
  • Virtual Electronics Laboratory/ Experimentation
  • Products and Manufacturing System Development Technology
  • Empowerment of SMEs
  • Capacity Building Technology Transfer

  • These enabled the institute to fully go into researches that will develop consumers’ electronics and allied technologies for Nigeria. We also domesticate/innovate existing technologies in Electronics and Information Communication Technology. The worldwide electronic revolution has pushed numerous electronic products into Nigeria from outside the country. In fact, Nigeria is reputed to be the fastest growing electronic market especially with respect to Information and Communications Technology (ICT). In pursuit of these objectives, the Centre sees technology adaptation as one of the vital means of achieving this mandate and to develop a viable indigenous infrastructure for industrial electronic development. As a result of our research activities, ELDI as an electronics research and development institute have conceived, designed and developed so many products [see figure 1 and 2 below] that meets consumers’ needs. One of our products, the energy saving LED bulbs, has attracted the President Muhammed Buhari’s attention and commendation on the 14th August, 2016 and we are waiting for the policy directive to implement the product for national usage as the means to patronize locally made products.
