[Hong Kong, 4 November 2021] A R&D project in which the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) played an important part, titled “Key Technology and Complete Set of Processes for High Density and High Reliability Electronic Packaging”, has won a First-class Prize of the 2020 State Scientific and Technological Progress Award. This national-level award is the highest honour ever obtained by an R&D institution associated with the Hong Kong SAR Government in the field of electronic packaging. It was presented at the 2020 State Science and Technology Awards Conference, held in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on 3 November 2021.
ASTRI has been collaborating for several years with the mainland government, industry players, academia and the application sector. The award recognises ASTRI’s success in developing high-density and high-reliability electronic packaging technology and promoting the rapid development of China’s electronics manufacturing industry.
More generally, the award reflects the dedicated efforts of ASTRI’s Integrated Circuits and Systems technology division in advancing electronic packaging technologies, and its significant achievements in research, product development, patent application and management, and technology commercialisation in this field.
Dr Daniel Shi, Senior Director of Integrated Circuits and Systems at ASTRI, was one of the main contributors to the project. Together with collaborators Dr Sun Yaofen and Dr Xie Bin, Dr Shi developed the patented innovation “Method For Optimizing Electrodeposition Process Of A Plurality Of Vias In Wafer” which was an essential part of the award-winning project.
Prompted by the award, the ASTRI team will strive to play an even greater part in this area in the future. It will also look to further contribute to building an international I&T hub in the Greater Bay Area (GBA) by seizing opportunities brought by the 14th Five-Year Plan and the Outline Development Plan for the GBA.
The State Scientific and Technological Progress Award is China’s most important award in the field, recognising individuals and organisations that have made outstanding contributions to the development of science and technology. In 2020, category awards under the State Science and Technology Awards granted include: the State Pre-eminent Science and Technology Award, 46 State Natural Science Awards, 61 State Technological Invention Awards, and 157 State Scientific and Technological Progress Awards.
