HPT organizes a workshop on "Microchip Design: Opportunities and Challenges."

On December 21, 2023, HPT organized a workshop at the Thu Duc Office with the theme "Microchip Design: Opportunities and Challenges," providing a profound insight into microchip design, a rapidly developing and crucial technological field. The event was attended by the Board of Directors, the CEO, and all managers of HPT in HCM and Hanoi (connected via Microsoft Teams).
To introduce and kick off the program, Mr. Ngo Vi Dong - Chairman of the Board of Directors, shared information about the microchip design industry, emphasizing its current global and Vietnamese significance. The workshop had the honor of hosting Dr. Nguyen Minh Son - a leading expert in computer engineering and Head of the Computer Engineering Department at the University of Information Technology (UIT), Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology. Dr. Son also serves as the Director of the ASIC R&D LAB at UIT and is a member of the Science and Technology Committee of the Saigon Hi-Tech Park.

In his presentation, Dr. Minh Son shared profound knowledge about microchip design, encompassing both the opportunities and challenges that the semiconductor industry is currently facing. Dr. Son discussed the current state of the semiconductor industry in Vietnam, noting its positive development with the participation of numerous domestic and international enterprises. While acknowledging some limitations, he emphasized the abundant opportunities within the semiconductor industry in Vietnam. According to him, seizing opportunities arising from the rapid technological advancements is crucial. Microchip design serves as the foundation for various other technological fields, including smartphones, computers, autonomous vehicles, and more. The evolution of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is generating an increasing demand for advanced microchips. However, the microchip design industry also encounters several challenges. A major challenge is the growing complexity of microchips. Modern microchips consist of billions of transistors, making their design and production increasingly intricate and costly.

At the end of the workshop, Dr. Minh Son took the time to address questions from HPT members. Mr. Dinh Ha Duy Linh, representing HPT, presented a commemorative gift and expressed gratitude to Dr. Minh Son for the valuable insights and information regarding microchip design, as well as the current status and trends in training and the workforce supplying this industry.
