First Omani microchips prove mettle in international testing

A milestone has been achieved with the Oman-1 and Oman-2 microchips passing the first round of testing in Taiwan.  Muscat – On the road to manufacturing Oman’s first advanced microchips, a milestone has been achieved with the Oman-1 and Oman-2 chips after a successful round of testing in Taiwan.  

The chips were sent to the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company last year, where these underwent thorough testing to ensure readiness for production.

‘Exciting news as the Oman-1 and Oman-2 chips have officially arrived, marking a significant milestone for our nation. These chips – proudly designed by Omani engineers – are now back.

Initial testing has indicated that the chips are alive. More testing results will be shared as soon as available,’ GSME Oman, the company responsible for manufacturing the chips posted on LinkedIn.

Following return from Taiwan, the chips are going undergoing trial. ‘Embarking on a groundbreaking journey as chip testing kicks off for nine innovative projects. Six blocks tested with 100% success; this achievement is a great sign of hope and pride that local talent is on par with international standards in chip design. This achievement marks a significant milestone in Oman’s semiconductor journey,’ the company stated.
