This EPP will spur the development of substrate manufacturers and their related industries that play a supporting role. Substrate manufacturing represents a key industry as it supplies substrates used to manufacture integrated circuit chips.
Under this EPP, the target is to attract two more wafer substrate manufacturers to Malaysia.
- Two new high-quality projects to support growth in the substrate manufacturing sector were seen in 2014: QDos Interconnect’s move into Molded Interconnect Substrate (MIS) technology and Ibiden Electronics’ effort to manufacture high-technology Printed Wiring Boards for the telecommunications industry. These two projects were counted towards the target of 18 new high-quality E&E projects for the year.
