Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute, (ASTRI).
Hong Kong Applied Science and technology Research Institute, ASTRI was founded by the Government of Hong Kong Special Administration Region in 2000 with a mission of enhancing Hong Kong’s competitiveness in technology-based industries through applied research. In 2006, Astri was designated the HK research Development centre for Information and communications Technology by the Innovation and technology Commission with special goals to perform leading-edge R&D for technology transfer to industry. And It Acts as a focal point bring together industry and University R&D assets.
There is a material and packaging technologies group focus on developing high valued, net-generation technologies and products in the form of devices, component, modules and system integration that are differentiated mainly by material and packaging technologies. That would be an important support not just to Hong Kong, but the neighbored cities in the Pearl River Delta (PRD).
Since it’s established in 2005, MPT has launched 5 technology initiatives namely: • Light Emitting Diodes (LED) • Advanced packaging Technologies • Photonics Components • Micro-Systems • Device Material
MT Group has now 108 staff; LED is one of the major development programme for them. Right now, they are focusing on he SSL, Indoor lighting, outdoor lighting, Phosphor printing, BLU for TV. Pico-Projector and Scanning Mirror.
So far they have achieved 131 US patents, 106 technology Transfer, 61 customers, 14 awards for Hong Kong, Korea, China, Japan and USA.
If you have any requipment of a technical support on the development of LED, either you want to build a new package, support an innovation idea for materialization under production environment. You may also contact ASTRI at
