  • GNI by 2020 (mil)
  • Projected jobs by 2020

This EPP aims to enhance IC support areas such as talent, IP protection and acquisition, Electronic Design Acquisition and Project Design Kit (design library). This is targeted to increase the number of IC design firms in Malaysia to at least 50 local and multinational firms by 2020.


  • Engineering samples of the Green Motion Controller (GMC) chip completed by MIMOS are now available for companies to adopt commercially. The GMC chip will enable more energy efficient applications such as hybrid electric vehicles and home appliances. MIMOS is also working on designing a GMC chip demo.
  • One new IC design company, Efinix Technology (M) Sdn Bhd (ETSB), commenced operations in 2014. ETSB is a fully-owned subsidiary of Efinix Inc, a programmable logic company offering a variety of Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) solutions to semiconductor companies and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) using Efinix Inc’s core technology, EFabric.
