The 'chip crisis' that swept the world led countries to domestic production. Turkey, TUBITAK in this game 'I'm in, "he says. SABAH Newspaper entered the local chip production base in Gebze. The center, where 55 engineers work, will produce local auto or chip as well as defense
In many sectors, including the automotive production grew chips to stop and causing huge economic loss crisis, eyes turned to the chip production in Turkey. A feverish work is being carried out at the Semiconductor Technologies Research Laboratory (YITAL) of the National Electronics and Cryptology Research Institute (UEKAE) within the body of TÜBİTAK BİLGEM, which is the production base in this regard.
PRODUCTION IS MADE FOR ROKETSAN AND ASELSAN
The best 55 engineers and 25 technicians in their field, working day and night, entered the strategic base where a significant part of the microchip needs of the Turkish defense industry were met. In the center where both the design and production of the chip are carried out, production is made for Roketsan, Aselsan and TÜBİTAK Sage.
"WE ARE IN THE PREPARATION PERIOD, SOON WE WILL KNOW THE DOOR"
Turkey's car also said that they have the competence to make production for TOGG YİTAL Officer, Dr. Aziz Ulvi Çalışkan says, “We are in the preparatory period on this issue, we will knock on their door soon”. UEKAE Institute Director Erdal Bayram said, “The number of countries that design and manufacture all information security components, from algorithm to chip, does not exceed 5-6. We are one of them, ”and drew attention to our competence in this field.
TURKEY AMONG GIANTS
While the dimensions of the crisis, which caused giant automotive companies to stop production, are growing day by day, countries that produce this tiny piece, which is the brain of many products, especially electronics, defense and automotive, have gained strength in global competition. At YİTAL, where microchips are produced with silicon technology, which accounts for 90 percent of the entire market in the world, scientists work on new technologies by doing two shifts a day.
UEKAE Institute Director Erdal Bayram says that they are still capable of adapting the production of microchips for the defense industry to other sectors. One of these sectors is automotive, which is on the agenda with the chip shortage it is experiencing.
WE ARE READY TO WORK WITH TOGG
Counting the days to produce the car in Turkey's own vehicle tOGGer saying that the possible use of the opportunities chips produced by local and national Dr. Çalışkan said, “In the automobile industry, there is a power control system that transfers the power in the battery to the wheels. These are very critical materials. We have important solutions in this subject, which we are highly skilled in, and we have the necessary technology ”.
Stating that their preparations are continuing, Çalışkan said, “We will knock on their door soon too. TOGG should also turn to us, they should explain their needs and shape us, ”he said. Saying that YITAL does not make apparel but tailor made production, Erdal Bayram said, “We produce according to the order. The same could happen for TOGG ”.
CONTACTS FOR EXPORT CONTINUES
The products in question are not exported yet. Stating that they have received various requests on this issue from time to time, Erdal Bayram gave the following information: “Countries such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Taiwan were also met. But in the first place, we focused on our own defense industry. Because we need to make a special design for them. We do not have the chance to give our existing designs. Those who hear our products indirectly are knocking on our door. We do not produce products that are ready on the shelf. We make special designs and productions for the purpose. "
COME FROM JAPAN ENTERED THE LABORATORY
Erdal giving employees the knowledge that all of the Turkey Day, "Even the majority of all received training in Turkey. There are scientists from Europe and America working here. A friend of ours, who completed his last doctorate in the semiconductor industry, came from Japan and joined us. We are also open to new participation. Increased tendency towards Turkey. Parallel to this increase, we expect participation among us, ”he said. Stating that the laboratory works in two shifts, Çalışkan said, "Our laboratory, where mostly young people work, is open until 23.00 at night."
