TÜBİTAK-Bilgem and Yital A.Ş. to Cooperate in the Field of Semi-Conductor and Microelectronics

Issue 82 - June 2018

In order to perform activities related to micro and nano-sized devices containing semiconductor and similar technological materials, a cooperation agreement was signed on May 9, 2018 between TÜBİTAK-Bilgem and ‘Yital Mikroelektronik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş.’ 51% of which belongs to Aselsan, 29% to TÜBİTAK and 20% to the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries.

TÜBİTAK-Bilgem President Prof. Hacı Ali Mantar, Business Development Vice President Mr. Orhan Muratoğlu and Bilgem’s senior executives and Yital A.Ş. General Manager Dr. Atakan Peker attended the signature ceremony.

Yital A.Ş. General Manager Dr. Atakan Peker: “Studies will lead the development of technological capabilities”

Dr. Atakan Peker, who signed the agreement on behalf of Yital A.Ş. expressed his pleasure in the cooperation made with TÜBİTAK-Bilgem at the ceremony. Stating that these studies will contribute to the formation of a semiconductor and microelectronics industry in Turkey, Dr. Peker added that the studies to be carried out will lead to the development of technological capabilities.

Dr. Peker stated that among the near future targets of Yital A.Ş., the production, packaging and testing of critical microprocessors that are designed in Turkey without the need to send them abroad and continued: “We regard the semiconductor and microelectronics industry within a national ecosystem and we want to work towards a common goal with all stakeholders, including the clients. Within this context, we attach great importance to the close cooperation with TÜBİTAK-Bilgem and we believe that the protocol we have signed is an important step to this end.”

Yital A.Ş., the company registration of which was made with 17 million 462 thousand 500 Turkish Liras capital, is expected to proceed on its way as a “trusted semi-conductor production house.”

TÜBİTAK-Bilgem will Enhance its Studies on Semi-Conductors with Yital A.Ş.

Within its structure, TÜBİTAK-Bilgem hosts the only center in Turkey that makes whole circuit production in semi-conductor technologies for use in the field. In the 800 square meter laboratory, a clear room space where all designs necessary for the whole circuit production is available.  It is possible to perform all processes of mask production, wafer processing, wafer probing, packaging, circuit testing and aging process.

With the agreement signed, the semi-conductor studies will continue to expand.
