       Microelectronics R&D Centre of the Chinese Academy of Sciences(MECCAS) was formed by merger of former 109 Semiconductor Factory(established in 1958, first in China) and the Microelectronics Division of the Institute of Semiconductor, both of the Chinese Academy of Sciences(CAS) in 1986, and then was formally renamed the Institute of Microelectronics of CAS(IMECAS) on September 2003.
      IMECAS is a state research institute engaged in microelectronics, and is the supporting unit for CAS microelectronics integration and EDA Centre of CAS. 
      There are 430 employees working at 8 research departments and several administrative offices, including 271 researchers and technical personnel, among them 2 Academicians, 29 professors, 50 associate professors and senior engineers (19 Doctor Tutors). After years development in education and training, now enrolled postgraduates reach 175 in numbers, and 10 doctors are doing their postdoctoral researches in different research groups and labs.
      IMECAS has a glorious past. In 1958, 109 factory was formed as required to fulfill the state programs of high frequency transistor computer, and many years sinceúČIMECAS has been continuously developing and supplying miscellaneous semiconductors and ICs to the state, such as the transistors for the first germanium transistor computer(109ú┬) in the country, the transistors for the first silicon transistor computer(109ú├), and transistors for the first satellite "Dong Fang Hong -1", and the all ICs to build the first 757 computer(10M/s). 
      In decades IMECAS has undertook hundred of national R&D projects with plentiful achievements, and made a great contribution to the microelectronics development of China.
      As one of the Pilot Project Institutes of the Knowledge Innovation Program of CAS, IMECAS established its target, which is to build a modern high-tech research institution to meet the strategical needs of the nation in microelectronics, and as the leader in innovation of IC technologies to undertake key research projects in S&T and product development, and to strengthen the technology innovation and integration and to explore in leading edge technologies and basic researches, and as a promotion force to build a open platform for IC industry development, and as a training base for qualified S&T personnel to strengthen postgraduate education .
      For years, IMECAS has cooperated with many universities, research institutions and industries domestic and abroad, and has a wide influence in microelectronics field in China. 
      To provide direct services to the society based on the market IMECAS carries out transformation of sci-tech achievements through technical services, technology transfer and direct product sales. 
      In April 1998 and June 2002 IMECAS got the Quality Management Certifications [GB/T19001-2000(idt ISO 9001:2000) and GB/T19001(ISO 9002)] respectively.
