Though cooperating with foreign organizations is another way to acquire advanced technology, well-built relationship must be done first. Through exchange visit activities, more information about these foreign organizations were gathered and they did make a great impact on our future plan.

Chip Implementation Center unveiled world's first wireless sensor building blocks – MorSensor.
Chip Implementation Center unveiled Nov. 21 its MorSensor wireless sensor building blocks. Suitable blocks can be combined to create a miniature but extremely sensitive sensing device, such as forming a breathalyzer with a screen, alcohol sensor and power source. By changing one block in the array, MorSensor can be transformed into a different sensing device. An example would be replacing the alcohol sensor in the breathalyzer with a lens unit to produce a camera.
Chip Implementation Center won 2 bronze medals from the iENA 2013.
The iENA 2013, the leading international trade show, hold from October 31th to November 3rd, 2013 in Germany. Chip Implementation Center has got 2 inventions, “Multi-layer system chip module architectures” and “VEHICLE IDLE-SPEED WARNING SYSTEM AND IDLE-SPEED DETECTION METHOD” that won 2 bronze medals from the iENA 2013.
The invention, Multi-layer system chip module architectures, includes at least two circuit board module layers and at least one connector module layer. Each connector module layer is sandwiched between and thus electrically connects two circuit board module layers such that the SoC module structure is formed by stacking. Each circuit board module layer is composed of at least one circuit board module while each connector module layer is composed of at least one connector module. Hence, the SoC module structure can be manufactured as a three-dimensional structure, thus allowing highly flexible connections within the SoC module structure.
The invention, VEHICLE IDLE-SPEED WARNING SYSTEM AND IDLE-SPEED DETECTION METHOD, is non-invasive, that is, there is no need to change or modify any part of the constructing parts in the engine compartment. This invention can be adopted stand-alone, or be applied to existing popular apparatuses, such as GPS, driving recorders, smart handheld devices, and vehicle electronic equipment. With the composing elements of a motion information module, an input module, an output module, a timer module and an information processing module, the present invention can accurately determine whether the vehicle under surveillance is in idle state and for how long it is in the idle state, and send an alarm signal automatically. With the implementation of the present invention, drivers can always be alarmed with the vehicle idling situations to prevent possible dangers or coming tickets due to the violation of traffic regulations in certain countries.

-Ping Sun, visited CIC to discuss the chip implementation service and training program. Prof. Tzi-Dar Chiueh,
Director of Chip Implement Center, introduced CIC operation mode, service items and the direction of future
development. Prof. Tzi-Dar Chiueh recommended that the University of Macau may cooperate with Taiwan
academic and engage in research exchange activities.
On March 6th the Japanese workshop delegation, including professors and students from Kyoto University,
Osaka University, Hokkaido University, visited CIC and accompanied by prof. Albert Chin. The purpose of the
visit is to understand CIC development in IC design.
On January 25th, Prof. Lina Sarro, Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands,accompanied by
Prof.Weileun Fang, visited CIC. Prof. Sarro encouraged Taiwan students to study in Europe and engage
in research exchange activities. She expressed the hope that Taiwan and the Netherlands may conduct
academic exchanges through joint seminars.
Prof. Euisik Yoon and Prof. Katsuo Kurabayashi, University of Michigan, visited CIC on January 22nd
and accompanied by Prof. Yu-Ting Cheng. The purpose of the visit is to understand CIC development in
the field of micro-electromechanical and the training practices for MEMS design engineers. Prof.Yu-
Ting Cheng, the vice executive of National Program on Nano Technology (NPNT), said Taiwan academic
can cooperate with world-renowned scholars, and Chip Implementation Center might be the platform
for cooperation and might develop the key technologies for MEMS development.
