KUALA LUMPUR: Keysight Technologies Inc has announced the opening of its new regulatory test laboratory in Penang.
The laboratory will deliver accredited electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing services for electronic device makers across wide ranging industries including wireless communication, industrial internet of things, automotive, healthcare and medical applications.
"The opening of this testing lab signifies Malaysia's strong industry ecosystem as well as an important stakeholder in emerging technologies to support autonomous cars, electric vehicles, 5G and IoT devices, as well as medical equipment," Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) CEO Datuk Azman Mahmud said in a statement.
"This announcement is more gratifying as even during the current challenging, Malaysia continues to provide added advantages to investors for high-value added activities that promise a long term and sustainable growth," he said.
The lab will enable local manufacturers here to shorten their lead time by eliminating the need to send their products overseas for testing.
"Keysight is proud of our nearly 50 years of operations in Malaysia and our strong partnership with MIDA, which has enabled the establishment of our latest facility here," Keysight senior vice president and its industrial solutions group president Datuk Gooi Soon Chai said.
