The second quarter of the year saw MIMOS taking part in virtual events, online talks and conferences to raise public awareness on its R&D activities and technological know-how. We teamed up with relevant ministries, agencies and industries to share knowledge on digital transformation and technology domains across various sectors including E&E, industrial design and wireless network.
i) National Science Week
MIMOS has once again participated in National Science Week 2021 which was organised by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. Held from April 1 to 7, the event was aimed to empower local science, technology and innovation in supporting the country’s journey and vision towards becoming a high-tech nation.
During the week-long event, MIMOS delivered online talks on integrated circuit (IC) in the E&E field and design development. The first talk entitled ‘Introduction to Integrated Circuit (IC) Design’ was presented by MIMOS senior engineer Chia Chieu Yin, who shed light on IC design and its development on the local scene. This was followed by “Enhance Your Creativity Through Digital Design Technology and Tools’ online talk by MIMOS Product Design Head Saharudin Busri, who highlighted the application of cutting-edge industrial design tools for product development.
