Abstract : In developing the potential for microelectronics applications in developing countries, it is important to consider the past performance of the national economy, its current strengths and weaknesses, and the goals and targets set forth by the planners for the future. And also the ability to regulate the inflow of microelectronics technology depends upon the level of development of the country concerned and local technological capacities in developing countries. Many of the policies towards microelectronics technology inflow must be pursued at considerable efforts for international action in order to exchange information and strengthen each developing countries' knowledge of alternatives and practices. Microelectronics technology has been developed in the developed countries while most of the current R & D activity in developing countries is not directed to the development of microelectronics technology. International assistance may be needed to help provide resources of both finance and manpower to create institutions to promote the inflow and application of this technology.
