Agilent Technologies will lead in the development of an ecosystem of local design partners to boost Malaysia's offerings of design services, Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) and solution partners to global players.
The support provided will enable these design partners to grow from product design and development to IP creation, manufacturing, market access as well as customer and application specification, subsequently to produce their own products.
CEEDTec and Myreka, are two Malaysian companies poised to be groomed to become ODM partners with Agilent Technologies. This provides an opportunity for local companies to gain market insight and intelligence to develop their own capabilities to design and build their own products. This will promote more on-ground R&D activities, creating more high-value jobs within Malaysia. This will enable local companies to compete worldwide and further spur R&D activities locally.
Towards this end, Agilent, in collaboration with the Northern Corridor Implementation Authority (NCIA), will host the Power Source Solutions Lab and Audio & Signal Analysis Solutions Lab (including Design Validation), in which the two Malaysian design partners will use the lab facilities for product design and development purposes. This facility will be serviced and maintained by Agilent. In the future, this facility can then be integrated into a centralised shared service facility developed by the government.
