Kenya steps into the manufacturing sector as a new semi-conductors system is launched

H. E. the Deputy President, Hon. Rigathi Gachagua, launched the Ol-Borana semi-conductor system at Dedan Kimathi University in Nyeri County. This system has been designed and built locally in Nyeri County, by Semiconductor Technologies Limited and Dedan Kimathi University. This brand is among the most advanced in the world.


The Ol Borana system is a Thin Film Silicon water sputtering system that uses precision robotics and sensor technology to process semiconductors and nanomaterials. During the process, high-purity water is necessary and is typically provided on-site.


Nanoparticles are used to manufacture scratchproof eyeglasses, crack-resistant paints, anti-graffiti coatings for walls, transparent sunscreens, and coatings for solar cells. This innovation is going to give Kenya a niche in the world of microchip production, contributing to the dream of becoming not just a major consumer of technology but also a producer. This system is will be helpful in agriculture, biotechnology, and in the manufacturing of chips for microelectronics.
