After that we visited Wireless Communications Test Laboratory (WCTL) and Reliability Laboratory (RL) with two new 3D printers. Then we visited to Material Analysis Laboratory and our engineer briefed the operation SEM and XPS to the guest. We also visited IC Failure Analysis Laboratory (ICFAL).
We went to Biotech Support Centre and our engineer demonstrated different biotechnology equipment.
Finally, we visited to the Probe and Test Development Centre (which operated in the class 10000 clean room).
After the laboratory visit, I led visitors into Charles K. Kao Auditorium (also known as the “Golden Egg”). It is a lecture theater with 283 seats. Mr. Metab Mizani and Mr. Sultan Altellawi took a photo for memory.
At the end, we took a photo in front of the Golden Egg and visited Building Green 18 roof garden.
I would like to introduce GAC and GSO below.
GAC's role is to serve the GAC member countries national and public interest by ensuring that member facilities comply with relevant international and Gulf standards and so are competent to provide consistently reliable testing, calibration, measurement, certificates and inspection data to government, industry and the wider community.
GSO aims at helping the GCC achieve the objectives set forth in its charter and in the GCC Economic Agreement by unifying the various standardization activities and following up application and compliance of the same in cooperation and coordination with the standardization bodies in the Member States in an endeavor to develop the production and service sectors, foster the Intra-GCC trade, protect the consumer, environment and the public health, and encourage the GCC industries and agricultural production that would enhance the GCC economy , maintain the achievements of the Member States and minimize the technical trade barriers as envisaged by the objectives of the Customs Union.
The governments of The State of the United Arab Emirates, The Kingdom of Bahrain, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, The Sultanate of Oman, The State of Qatar and The State of Kuwait made agreement for GSO.
