What is the Silicon Belt Fukuoka (SSB) concept?

福岡県内における大学等の頭脳資源や半導体関連企業の集積、及び自動車産業の集積等地域のポテンシャルを最大限に活 用し、東アジア地域(福岡、九州、韓国、上海、台湾、香港、シンガポール等)を結ぶシリコン・シーベルト地帯の核となる世界レベルの先端半導体開発拠点を構築する構想で、平成13年からプロジェクトを開始しています。


This concept is to establish a world level advanced semiconductor development base as the core of the Silicon Sea Belt that connects Eastern Asia (Fukuoka, Kyushu, South Korea, Shanghai, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore etc.) taking full advantage of the potential in Fukuoka where intelligent resources in universities, semiconductor related companies and automobiles are concentrated, The project was launched in 2001.
While enhancing the strategic bases in this prefecture, this initiative has achieved more than 100 cases of practical use of research and development results, and has trained more than 10,000 persons in total, and also has achieved cooperative agreements with overseas institutions.



Developing strategic bases of SSB concept




In order to promote the SSB concept, base facilities capable of supporting a series of processes from development and design of semiconductors to assembling and packaging and evaluation are organized in each location of this prefecture. These base facilities are fully utilized by research institutions such as universities and research and development companies in this region.
