In this page I would like to sketch out the main characteristic features of the Belarusian semiconductor industry - one of the main branches of Belarusian economy. I would appreciate any remarks or comments from Belarusian engineers, who were/are directly involved into this industry.
News on Belarusian "Silicon
During the USSR times Belarus semiconductor industry was taking care of the mass manufacturing of main-stream semiconductor elements, ICs and computer chips. While the most sophisticated chips were manufactured in Zelenograd (in suburban Moscow) Belarusian enterprises were mostly oriented on consumer electronics and mid-level ICs. The main Belarusian semiconductor consortium - Research and Production Corporation "Integral" - is in fact the largest in Eastern Europe semiconductor company. Many of the ICs manufactured in USSR are reverse engineered or even direct copies of Western ICs. There are even conversion tables of Western to Russian types of chips and ICs. Last year Integral has sold about 100 million US$ worth memory chips to Japan. Below we would like to give some links to existing sites of Belarusian semiconductor companies with minor comments.
This main belarusian semiconductor consortsium"Integral" in fact consists of 6 plants and 3 design centers providing complete cycle of production of electronic components. The headquarters of "Integral" are located in Dziarzhinski Plant. Below are the links to the constituents of Integhral. Some of them have searcheable databases of products in .pdf format.
