  MOSTI LAUNCHED ITIC, THE SEMICONDUCTOR RESEARCH CONSORTIUM AND MIMOS ACADEMY TO PROPEL MALAYSIA'S TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT

Monday 24/06/2024



BUKIT JALIL, June 24 (Bernama) -- YB Tuan Chang Lih Kang, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, inaugurated the Industry Technology Innovation Centre (ITIC), Semiconductor Research Consortium, and MIMOS Academy at MIMOS Berhad, located in Kulim High-Tech Park (KHTP), Kedah on 22 June 2024.

The launch of the ITIC represents a major milestone in the advancement of the technology industry. ITIC comprises four (4) centres, each managed by a different agency under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI):

1.  MIMOS, which focuses on the Electrical and Electronics (E&E) sector;
2.  MRANTI, which specialises in Drone and Robotic Technology;
3.  MIGHT, which is dedicated to Smart City Technology; and
4.  MYSA, which concentrates on Aerospace.

YB Tuan Chang Lih Kang expressed confidence in the initiatives announced today. According to him, the establishment of ITIC, the Semiconductor Research Consortium, and the MIMOS Academy are strategic and transformative steps for the long-term development of industry and talent. Today's launch reflects MOSTI's commitment to creating a semiconductor technology ecosystem to propel Malaysia's position in the global E&E sector.

Specifically, the MIMOS ITIC will emphasise Automated Test Equipment (ATE). This initiative supports the E&E Roadmap 2021-2030, with goals to localise high-value components and boost value-added contributions.

ITIC will enhance local content in ATE manufacturing by sourcing local components and materials, fostering collaborations, and establishing local manufacturing facilities to increase job opportunities and expertise. Local talent will develop specialised software and firmware, ensuring products meet domestic demand, supported by government incentives and collaborations with academia.

Additionally, the launch of the Semiconductor Research Consortium led by MIMOS will leverage MIMOS facilities and strategic collaborations to advance semiconductor technology and address industry challenges, positioning Malaysia as a leader in semiconductor research and development (R&D).

The MIMOS Academy will play a crucial role in offering training and nurturing the next generation of technology pioneers. Aligned with Malaysia's National Semiconductor Strategies (NSS), the MIMOS Academy aims to attract investments and develop skilled talent to meet industry needs, thereby strengthening Malaysia's position as a global R&D hub.

Therefore, the inauguration of ITIC demonstrates MOSTI's commitment to supporting the development of the E&E industry through comprehensive policies, incentives, and infrastructure development. This effort will propel Malaysia towards becoming a high-income and technologically advanced nation, further supporting sustainable and inclusive economic development.
