Their participation in our technical programs will help insure both success and faster utilization of the results. All of our Membership welcomes ITRI as our newest member.
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) September 27, 2007
Two of the major organizations involved in Electronics Manufacturing R&D announced that they are joining forces to tackle the many technical and regulatory challenges facing the Electronics Industry today. The industry is global in nature, and these two organizations have recognized that the best way to resolve problems is by working together through a global approach. The HDP User Group based in Scottsdale, Arizona, with offices in Europe and Japan, will give ITRI access to it's technical programs and international membership; while ITRI, based in Taiwan, will provide an interface to electronics manufacturers and suppliers in Asia by way of HDP User Group's participation in ITRI's Advanced Microsystem & Packaging technology Alliance (AMPA). The relationship will be administered on ITRI's side through the Electronics and Optoelectronics Research Laboratory (EOL) a laboratory within ITRI.
"ITRI brings a wealth of technical knowledge and capability, as well as a strong working relationship with electronics firms in Asia" noted Marshall Andrews, Executive Director or the HDP User Group. "Their participation in our technical programs will help insure both success and faster utilization of the results. All of our Membership welcomes ITRI as our newest member."
"HDP User Group is an international industrial collaborative platform.", noted Dr. Yi-Jen Chan, VP of ITRI and General Director of EOL, "the alliance of AMPA and HDPUG will enable ITRI to participate in HDPUG's projects directly and joint development will be carried out by targeting future electronic technology development roadmaps and applications. ITRI is dedicated to technology innovation and environment issues, and I can foresee the cooperation will lead us to epochal achievements."

About the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI)
The Industrial Technology Research Institute - ITRI - is a non-profit R&D organization engaging in applied research and technical service. It was founded in 1973 by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) to attend to the technological needs of Taiwan's industrial development. ITRI has played a vital role in the transformation of the economy from an agriculture-based model to an industrial one. By year 2007 it has grown to a 6000 people operation, and served as the technical center for industry and an unofficial arm of the government's industrial policies in Taiwan. Backed by its broad research scope and close industrial ties, ITRI is becoming an increasingly active member in the global industrial R&D community.
The Electronics and Optoelectronics Research Laboratories (EOL) is one of the core laboratories of ITRI. It undertakes research and development in core technologies that are considered essential to the sustaining growth of the overall electronics industry in Taiwan. Research topics include Flexible Electronics, Non-volatile memories & Nanoelectronics, Advanced Packaging, Optical Storage, Digital Imaging and Display, and Optoelectronic Devices and Components. The Advanced Microsystem & Packaging technology Alliance (AMPA), which consists of members from the semiconductor industry, provides a communication platform of industrial technology and market information to the members.
