An agreement has been recently signed between the IC Design Research and Education Center (ICDREC) and nine other universities and institutions with the aim of setting up IC design centers and training engineers in Vietnam. ICDREC, which belongs to the Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City (NUH), will coordinate with the Sai Gon Industry Corp. to provide funding and training in IC design to these universities.

The universities include the University of Technologies, the University of Natural Sciences, the International University and the University of Information Technology under the NUH and the Institute of Postal and Telecommunication Technology in Ho Chi Minh City.

The agreement is part of a project titled "Design and Create Chips, Cards, RFID (Readers and Build Application System) and Build Application Systems" valued at about $7 million by ICDREC and the Sai Gon Industry.

IC Design Research and Education Center

A deal to set up IC design centers and train engineers was signed among the IC Design Research and Education Center (ICDREC) and nine other universities and institutions.

The project, funded by the government, was unveiled by the NUH in November last year after getting approval from the Ministry of Science and Technology. It will seek to design and experimentally produce 32bit microprocessor chips with low capacity and high competitiveness besides related IP cores to later produce RFID HF and UH chips, RFID readers and some other systems requiring RFID cards.

Once completed, the experimental products will be sold by ICDREC and the Sai Gon Industry who have pumped $1 million into the project.

The four-year project is in line with Ho Chi Minh City's policies to boost the chip industry in the city, ICDREC director Ngo Duc Hoang indicated.
