Mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) pose a significant threat to Turkey. In order to serve as a mine detection test facility on a national & regional basis and to conduct research on related technologies, “Mines and Improvised Explosive Devices Countermeasures Test and Research Center - MEKTAM” was established in 2015 at TÜBİTAK Gebze Campus.
ISO and NATO certified semi-anechoic acoustic recording and test rooms are Turkey’s first and only “Voice and Speech Technology Evaluation” infrastructure.
This infrastructure comprises two specially insulated semi-anechoic acoustic recording rooms (20 and 18 m² area) and a specially insulated
listener test room (91 m² area). In the test room, 16 subjects can actively participate in the assessment simultaneously.
Cloud Computing and Big Data Research Laboratory (B3LAB) Project was initiated in 2013 under the leadership of TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Information Technologies Institute (BTE) and with the support of the Investment Program of the Turkish Ministry of Development, basing on the needs of Turkey and the current developments around the world in Cloud Computing. The project aims to provide the necessary ground for the formation of infrastructure in Cloud Computing and Big Data.
TÜTEL was established in 2016 with the support of Eastern Marmara Development Agency (MARKA) to gain an important know-how in the field of microelectronics and to create an integrated circuit ecosystem with researchers, SMEs and start-ups, universities. In this ecosystem, besides the educational activities, IC design, development, testing and fabrication facilities are offered at the prototype and proof of concept level.
R & D studies based on identifying-diagnostic-analysis have been started for the purpose of reducing the foreign dependence of our country by combining opto / microelectronics, software engineering and chemistry-biology-physics-mathematics-nanotechnology expertise. For this reason, Analytical Devices and Systems Laboratory was established and started its project activities.
Cathode and Microwave Vacuum Tube Research Labs aim is to design and develop cathodes for microwave vacuum tubes (Magnetrons, TWTs, etc.) for various applications like satellite communications, electronic warfare systems, high power radar systems and medical systems.
RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE AND TECHNICAL CAPABILITIES
YITAL was est ablished for conducting research in the fields of semiconductor technology in 1983.
YITAL currently uses the 0,7 μm CMOS technology and has been developing the 0,25 μm 5 met al CMOS and SiGeC HBT BiCMOS processes. YITAL, which develops it’s original production processes, has reached present position by developing BIPOLAR technology, 3 μm and 1,5 μm CMOS technologies and producing low-volume integrated circuits (IC).
Electro-optics and Laser Systems Laboratory is established in line with the mission of TÜBİTAK BİLGEM to perform R&D activities in laser and laser systems involving critical technologies for the nation, to develop systems and to ensure the continuity, to improve the quality of laser-optic products, and to become the one of word’s leading nations in this field.
RF R&D Laboratory consists of personnel and infrastructure capable of research and development up to 110 GHz frequency band. There exists a realization and test/measurement RF/microwave infrastructure up to 40 GHz. Millimeter wave band designs can be implemented in “Chip On Board” technology-based MCMs (Multichip Modules) using the facilities of Gebze Campus.
RF DESIGN PRODUCTS
Wind energy, which is one of the most environment ally friendly (so called “green”) and efficient types of renewable energy, has recently attracted great attention throughout the world. The great demand that currently exist on the wind energy production clearly indicates the increasing future investments on this technology.
