MIMOS Berhad (Malaysian Institute Of Microelectronic Systems) is a strategic agency under purview of the Malaysian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI). The agency is led by Dato’ Wahab Abdullah, who was appointed in July 2006, to become the premier applied research centre in frontier technologies; and transform the landscape of the indigenous industries. Towards this end, MIMOS’ mission is to pioneer information and communication technologies (ICT) to grow globally competitive indigenous industries.

MIMOS’ applied research efforts are focused on developing technology platforms upon which local industries can build products for the world market. MIMOS role essentially is to transfer or license the technology platforms to Malaysian companies to further develop these technologies into products and applications to serve the global market needs. The ultimate aim is to help move Malaysia’s ICT industry higher up the value chain and shift the economic needle.

MIMOS’ robust technology platforms provide local companies - who are MIMOS’ technology recipients - with a speedy time-to-market and price elasticity to position themselves globally. With the Intellectual Property (IP) that MIMOS has generated, we would also be able to reposition Malaysia’s indigenous industries to play in niche markets globally. This means, without having to invest in research, which has a long gestation period and high market uncertainty, the local industries are able to focus on building the brand and marketing channels.

The company is formerly known as The Malaysian Institute of Microelectronic Systems and was founded in 1985.
