Innovation in engineering and technology is critical for driving the development of Microelectronics. To enhance Hong Kong’s advantages in Microelectronics, Science Park offers technical support in testing, analysis and consultation to facilitate the R&D of electronics innovation.
The cluster is supported by the Technology Support Centre (TSC)， which coordinates communal laboratory services for the Microelectronics industry. Operational since 2002, TSC runs a range of laboratories with equipment and experienced engineers to support partner companies with advanced equipment for prototyping, testing and other analysis facilities. The goal is to help IC companies minimise capital costs, reduce turnaround time, enjoy convenient access to R&D facilities and ensure IP protection with one-stop services, and attract companies to set up R&D offices at Science Park.
TSC serves an average of nearly 180 companies every year, including Science Park tenants and Hong Kong companies in fabless IC-design and related fields. Corresponding laboratory services are offered to support their work in design and simulation with EDA/CAD, wafer probing & testing, IC packaging, unit/board/modular reliability testing and even failure analysis. TSC’s technical and engineering services serve to foster microelectronics development in Hong Kong.
