Company Background

The Institute of Microelectronics (IME) is a member of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). Established in 1991, our mission is to increase value-add to the electronics industry in Singapore by engaging in relevant R&D in strategic fields of microelectronics; supporting and partnering the electronics industry; and developing skilled R&D personnel.

R&D at IME covers the semiconductor technology chain, viz integrated circuit design, wafer fabrication process technology, packaging and assembly, and reliability testing and analysis, as well as niche areas such as micro-electro-mechanical-systems (MEMS) and bio-electronics.

These R&D programmes are broadly classified under three laboratories, namely:

  • Integrated Circuits and Systems (ICS)
  • Semiconductor Process Technologies (SPT), and
  • Microsystems, Modules and Components (MMC)

IME also has a dedicated Bioelectronics & BioMEMS (BEBM) Programme to focus its R&D efforts to serve the bio medical industry and open up new opportunities for the semiconductor industry. In terms of personnel, IME employs around 200 staff, out of which:

  • 80% are directly involved in R&D
  • 50% have either a PhD or a Masters degree
  • 90 international researchers from 15 countries

IME also has some 150 students from universities and polytechnics attached to the Institute every year.
