The Da Nang Department of Information and Communications recently inaugurated its new Centre for Integrated Circuitry (CENTIC).

According to the Dang Nang Today online newspaper, the new centre will conduct research on technologies to develop integrated circuitry (IC) and embedded systems (ES). Special attention is also paid to applying IC and ES for communication devices, electronic appliances, and industrial production lines.

In addition, a focus is placed on transferring research results on IC and ES to individuals and organisations at home and abroad. The aim is to help them to apply these results to develop their production and improve the quality of their lives. Top priority is also given to training IC and ES human resources.

Vice Chairman of the municipal People's Committee Phung Tan Viet promised that the local authorities would create very favourable conditions to facilitate the centre’s operation.

He also asked for more assistance from consultants to help the centre develop effective and highly-applicable products.-VNA
