PERC organised an educational visit to AMD Export Sdn Bhd, Bayan Lepas Penang on 30th April 2009. The visit was a big success. A total of 26 people from various organisations attended. The AMD facility is one of eight “pioneer” electronics companies that established operations in Penang in 1972. AMD is a global supplier of integrated circuits for the personal and networked computer and communications markets with manufacturing facilities in the United States, Europe, Japan, and Asia. The purpose of the visit was to get an insight into latest innovations in chip technology; manufacturing process flow; technology momentum; and operations of the facility. Participants were very impressed with the presentation and were also able to have a first hand look of the physical set up of AMD Penang. PERC is very appreciative of the warm hospitality accorded including snacks at the AMD Canteen. The CEO of AMD Penang, Dato’ Mohd Sofie gave the welcoming speech.
