HCM CITY (VNS)— The head of the HCM City Department of Information and Communications has hailed the city's semi-conductor industry development programme for its accomplishments since being begun two years ago.

Speaking at a conference held to mark its second anniversary in HCM City yesterday, Le Thai Hy said it has enabled major achievements in training, chip design, developing integrated circuits (ICs) and establishing relations with international organisations.

The programme, entrusted to the Viet Nam National University-HCM City's Integrated Circuit Design Research and Education Centre (ICDREC), comprises of seven components including human resource training; incubating IC businesses; and building and running a design centre and a chip manufacturing plant.

Director of ICDREC, Ngo Duc Hoang, said products based on Vietnamese chips that have been commercialised include SG-8V1 and KIT DE-8V1 chips, container electric locks, itinerary surveillance devices, electronic meters, DCM (data collection modems), and RFID (radio frequency identification) management systems.

The conference also mapped out plans for the immediate future, especially for the development of programmes related to chip-based products and Lab-to-Fab and development of micro-electro-mechanical systems.

"These projects aim to create an ‘ecosystem' for the HCM City semi-conductor industry and strengthen the city's efforts to develop the industry," Hoang said.

According to the ICDREC, over 20 billion chips were consumed in Viet Nam every year.

Hy said the programme, to run until 2020, was ratified by the city People's Committee in 2012.

The conference was held by the HCM City Steering Committee for Semi-conductor Industry Development and the Department of Information and Telecommunications. —VNS
