October 17, 2011 - BUSINESS WIRE -- The Philippino brothers behind BiTMICRO in Silicon Valley and its Philippine subsidiary BiTMICRO Networks International Inc. have created the Bruce Institute of Technology (BIT) microelectronics and storage system training institute for the Philippines.
The Philippines is engaged in microelectronics assembly, fabrication, and manufacturing, noted Rey Bruce, chairman and CEO of BiTMICRO and one of the Bruce brothers. BIT will emphasize microchip design and development. Synopsys and Cadence are helping with engineering programs, and partner universities are encouraging enrollment. The initial list of participating schools includes the University of the Philippines, Mapua Institute of Technology, First Asia Institute of Technology and Humanities, Don Bosco Technical College and Mindanao State University.
BIT will launch with the development of the Philippines’ first commercially viable microprocessor, the Rizal, named after The Philippines' Dr. Jose Rizal. The multi-platform embedded configurable microprocessor is a "modest first step" in developing the Philippines as part of a global microelectronics ecosystem, added Rudy Bruce, president of BIT. Other programs will cover device- and system-level firm- and software development.
