Microchip products have been commercialized and applied in different fields

Focused development

Director of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Information and Communication, Duong Anh Duc, said that from 2013-2017, the city financed 18 IC research and trial production projects with a total of VND68 billion plus, which manufactured the first competitive commercial microchip product in Vietnam - SG-8V1 RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer).

The Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Science and Technology, and the Integrated Circuit Design Research & Education Center (ICDREC), National University, Ho Chi Minh City, have announced the evaluation (more than VND290.4 billion) of 21 microchip product sets built by the ICDREC. These include 8-bit and 32-bit microprocessors, 8-bit and 32-bit microprocessor peripheral IP cores, digital and image signal processing IP cores, Analog and Mix-signal IP cores, and applied products - electronic meters, engine control modules, radio-frequency identification (RFID) products, and lighting systems. Technology transfer and equipment supply revenues of the above-mentioned products reached VND68 billion and VND31 billion, respectively.

Promoting commercialization

Tom Nguyen, Managing Director of DunAn Sensing, said Vietnam has huge potential for IC industry development, as the country is a big market and its young workforce is well trained. The biggest concern is how to create products at reasonable prices and lowest cost.

Le Hoai Quoc, Head of the Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP) Authority, said Vietnam is a potential market for IC businesses, and products made by investors in the country could be supplied to foreign technology producers and assemblers in Vietnam. However, he added, domestic market and export development needs research, training and technology incubation and intellectual property protection, Quoc said.

Ho Chi Minh City will build a foundation for a semiconductor IC industry with a focus on services, design, trial production and product commercialization. The city will gradually approach some advanced semiconductor IC technologies, especially those that can be used for smart urban area construction. It will also promote international cooperation and attract investment by multinational corporations.

Deputy Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee, Tran Vinh Tuyen, said the city will create favorable conditions for domestic and foreign enterprises to contribute to the development of the semiconductor IC industry, and prioritize the development of applied sensor products for use in the fields of healthcare, education, traffic, flood prevention, food safety, and high-tech agriculture.
