MIMOS Berhad is Malaysia's national R&D centre in ICT under purview of the Malaysian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation . Led by Datuk Abdul Wahab Abdullah, who was appointed in July 2006, MIMOS' vision is to become the premier applied research centre in frontier technologies; and transform the landscape of the Malaysian indigenous industries. Towards this end, MIMOS' mission is to pioneer information and communication technologies to grow globally competitive indigenous industries. MIMOS' applied research efforts are focused on developing technology platforms upon which local industries can build products for the world market. MIMOS role essentially is to transfer or license the technology platforms to Malaysian companies to further develop these technologies into products and applications to serve the global market needs. The ultimate aim is to help move Malaysia's ICT industry higher up the value chain and shift the economic needle.MIMOS' technology platforms provide local companies – who are MIMOS' technology recipients – with a speedy time-to-market and price elasticity to position themselves globally. With the Intellectual Property that MIMOS has generated, we would also be able to reposition Malaysia's indigenous industries to play in niche markets globally. This means, without having to invest in research, which has a long gestation period and high market uncertainty, the local industries are able to focus on building the brand and marketing channels.The company is formerly known as The Malaysian Institute of Microelectronic Systems and was founded in 1985.

In [J.S. Shaari, M. Lucamarini, M.R.B. Wahiddin, Phys. Lett. A 358 (2006) 85] the deterministic six states protocol (6DP) for quantum communication has been developed. This protocol is based on three mutually unbiased bases and four encoding operators. Information is transmitted between the users via two qubits from different bases. Three attacks have been studied; namely intercept-resend attack (IRA), double-CNOT attack (2CNOTA) and quantum man-in-the-middle attack. In this Letter, we show that the IRA and 2CNOTA are not properly addressed. For instance, we show that the probability of detecting Eve in the control mode of the IRA is 70 % instead of 50 % in the previous study. Moreover, in the 2CNOTA, Eve can only obtain 50 % of the data not all of it as argued earlier. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter (UART) is widely used in data communication process especially for its advantages of high reliability, long distance and low cost. In this paper, we present the design of 9-bit UART modules based on Verilog HDL. This design features automatic address identification in the character itself. We have implemented the VLSI design of the module and pass data between the proposed 9-bit UART module with a host CPU. The design consists of receiver module, transmitter module, prescaler module and asynchronous FIFOs. We have explained the functions of each individual sub-modules and how the design works in simulation. © 2012 IEEE.

In this paper, we study the entanglement between two two-level atoms (qubits) when they interact simultaneously with a single-mode thermal field through exchanging k photons. We demonstrate the entanglement of the bipartite by making use of the concurrence. Contrary to previous studies, we deduce an exact form of the wave function of the system for various types of initial atomic states. We show that the asymmetric case (i.e., nonidentical atoms) can generate amounts of entanglement much greater than those of the symmetric one. These amounts are sensitive to the value of the transition parameter k and the type of initial atomic states. We present a novel phenomenon: for a particular type of Bell states, the initial entanglement can be trapped through the evolution of the system. This would be of a great interest in the framework of quantum memory. © 2011 Optical Society of America.

The SEACOOP project addresses the development of SandT cooperation on ICT with Southeast Asia, a region of strategic interest for the European Union. Its two main objectives are to identify, promote, and support strategic cooperation opportunities, and to support bilateral and multilateral dialogues. The project also aims at developing awareness on SandT cooperation on ICT under FP7 in Southeast Asia, and at widely disseminating project perspectives and results in the European and Southeast Asian ICT communities. The SEACOOP activities build upon the achievements reached by the BASIC, ENGAGE, and GAPFILL FP6 SSAs, and will develop synergies with other programmes and initiatives similarly addressing EU-Southeast Asia cooperation on ICT. Project outputs will include: - The identification of, and support to 10 to 15 key opportunities of strategic cooperation, transformed, before the end of the project (18 months), into major cooperation initiatives between the two regions, - The organisation of a cooperation event in Europe and of awareness workshops in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos (or Brunei), - The development of a web-based portal devoted to EU-Southeast Asia cooperation on ICT, part of an extensive set of promotion and dissemination activities. The SEACOOP project is coordinated by Orionis, who has successfully coordinated the GAPFILL SSA. The partnership includes, on the Southeast Asian side, the national Agencies managing ICT research in the 7 most advanced countries, which, added to the fact that ASEAN has brought its support to the project, will ensure the largest participation of the Southeast Asian ICT community in project activities, and will provide a suited environment for the development of EU-Southeast Asia policy dialogues. The SEACOOP project is formally supported, on the European side, by leading organisations, including the main ETPs, which will ensure the highest involvement of, and the highest project impact on, the European ICT community.

Gartner estimates that the internet of things (IoT) – a network of devices (things) with embedded technology enabling the transfer of data via the internet – will become a key enabling technology for digital businesses. It forecasts 4.9 billion connected things are in use in 2015; a figure expected to rise to 25 billion by 2020. Meanwhile, IDC forecasts IoT in Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan) is set to explode to 8.6 billion devices by 2020, growing from a current annual market of US$250 billion to US$583 billion in 2020. Within this broader APAC region, Southeast Asia (SEA), also known as ASEAN, is poised to drive the rise and rise of IoT, driven by three key factors: urbanization (demand), technology and device proliferation (the delivery platform) and manufacturing growth (supply). 1. Rapid urbanization SEA is packed with population-dense cities, including Ho Chi Minh City (12.8 million), Jakarta (10.1 million), Bangkok (8.3 million), and Singapore (5.4 million). There are 26 cities in ASEAN with populations in excess of a million people. According to McKinsey, urbanized SEA accounts for over 65 percent of the region’s US$2.4 trillion GDP (2014), with more than 90 million people set to relocate to urban areas by 2030; a shift that will support the growth of the “consuming class”, set to double to 163 million households by 2030. Growing urbanization and affluence will demand some US$7 trillion in infrastructure investment, including in IoT related technologies, a convergence of factors that makes SEA conducive for the internet of things to thrive. 2. Technology and device proliferation While Japan, China and South Korea have pioneered the adoption of IoT and machine to machine (M2M) technology in Asia-Pacific, and even globally, SEA arguably has the most potential for its application. The region has 744 million mobile connections, at 119% penetration, according to 2015 estimates by WeAreSocial. Meanwhile, PWC estimates Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam have over 100 million mobile subscribers each, while the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3G subscribers in Thailand is forecast to grow by 35% in the next five years, to 19 million. SEA’s countries are amongst the fastest growing in APAC based on tele-density and smartphone penetration – they are set to accelerate the demand for innovation. 3. Growth in manufacturing of ‘things’ Rising device proliferation, and the increasing ubiquity of technology has spurred consumer demand for ‘things’ – in turn creating a boom for manufacturers. Unlike the western world which has seen three industrial revolutions, SEA has leapfrogged on Industry 4.0 – driven by digitally connected manufacturing. While Industry 4.0 is a term coined in Germany, it has the potential for application and value creation within the economies of SEA. The region is shifting from agriculture to manufacturing, particularly the manufacturing of technologies. Interestingly, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit, while cheap labour is stereotypical appeal of the region, manufacturers in SEA rate this tenth among reasons to produce locally; the top reason is the burgeoning opportunity to cater to SEA’s middle class. They are constructing an interconnected world for consumers and businesses, catering to its diverse technology needs. With cloud technology, there is a shift from hardware services to system-enabled services. IoT-related projects are large in scale, infrastructure-driven and thus require financial and labour support to succeed. The exceptional convergence of these factors, coupled with the advent of the 2015 ASEAN Economic Community, makes SEA the place for individuals, industry innovators and pioneers, and government to come together and connect to its IoT future. What do you think of the rapid growth that’s to come in the future regarding IoT?
