Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), is announcing Sensor Lab 2.0, the next phase of its Sensor Packaging and Integration Laboratory (Sensor Lab) featuring more sensor product developers, expanded infrastructure and facilities, plus enhanced support by global leading industry partners to elevate development and deployment of advanced sensor products and solutions.

To further accelerate Hong Kong’s vision for reindustrialisation and economic diversification, HKSTP is creating world-class R&D and advanced manufacturing capabilities in emerging technology areas. Sensor Lab 2.0 will see a growing focus on smart sensors for healthcare applications and bring global electronics and semiconductor industry leaders to support a growing number of sensor companies in Hong Kong Science Park.

Participating companies at Sensor Lab will now benefit from the phase 2 expansion to 10,000 sq ft of cleanroom space, plus dedicated support and training from HKSTP and partners on go-to-market and business expansion strategies.

Sensor Lab is a dedicated hardware hub located at Hong Kong Science Park, supporting the full research and development cycle of microsensors and associated devices, including sensor design, fabrication and pilot runs, packaging, and testing.

HKSTP is partnering with two leading firms to provide enhanced support to start-ups and researchers on the development of smart sensors for healthcare markets, with a focus on shortening hardware development cycles and lowering R&D costs. They will consult on core technology development, as well as go-to-market strategy and provide access to global partners and customers.

The CEO at HKSTP stated that since the launch of Sensor Lab in 2017, a growing number of sensor chip companies have set up fabrication processes and equipment in Hong Kong. The opportunity for Hong Kong to lead advanced sensor development is enormous a fast-growing pipeline of impactful applications being developed around the next generation of smart sensors and solutions emerging from Sensor Lab is being observed currently.
