TOMSK, Jul 14 – RIA Tomsk. Tomsk University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (TUSUR) will
receive a subsidy to create a regional center for collective design of
ultra-high-frequency and photonic integrated circuits and modules; the center
will "test" microelectronics production technologies at the request
of industrial enterprises, the university's press service said.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian government will allocate about 100
billion rubles to support domestic microelectronics production, the state
program will stipulate uniform requirements for equipment technological
compatibility. Tomsk universities and technological companies will take part in
preparing the list of requirements. This was announced by Prime Minister Mikhail
Mishustin during his visit to Tomsk.
"In 2021, TUSUR will receive a targeted subsidy to create a regional
center for collective design of ultra-high-frequency and photonic integrated
circuits and modules on the basis of the university. The new center will serve
as a technological testing area, as well as (deal with) personnel training in
the conditions of the real production process", says the report.
The state subsidy funds will be used to purchase new technological,
assembly, control and measuring equipment by the end of the year, which will
expand TUSUR's capabilities in the creation of microwave microelectronics,
radio photonics, microwave and optical modules, the introduction of additive
(printed) technologies for the production of elements of new equipment.
"It is important that the center is created open, not closed only to
our university. This will allow us to put together cross-industry projects with
the participation of our colleagues from TSU and TPU, scientific institutes of
SB RAS, Micran company as a key industrial partner... (The task of the center
is to create) a complete chain of electronic products production," the
press service quotes TUSUR Rector Victor Rulevsky.
The design center will be located on the premises of two TUSUR subdivisions
- Nanotechnology Research and Education Center and Research Institute of
Microelectronic Systems. In the future, the new center of collective design
should enter the structure of a multidisciplinary Center for Microelectronic
Systems, which TUSUR plans to create by 2024, the report said.
Earlier it was also reported that TUSUR will create a Center for
Microelectronic Systems on the model of the Nanotechnology Center of
Polytechnic University of Milan. It is planned to be built in the next five
years. It will combine a regional design center for design of microelectronic
equipment, a testing laboratory and an educational center. The project is estimated at 700
