Abstract

This paper presents development and diffusion of microelectronics and embedded systems technologies in Nigeria as key tools for achieving Nigeria’s Vision20:2020. The Vision20:2020 objectives and necessary developmental steps (Investments in technology driven Agriculture and Hi-tech manufacturing industries to boost the Nation’s GDP and GNI) identified as vital to its achievement are discussed. Researchers have observed that appropriate diffusion of microelectronics and embedded systems technologies enhance economic activities and transitions developing economies from consuming to creating. They drive all key sectors of the 21century, hence the paper argues that they will provide Nigeria with the necessary growth engine needed to produce an accelerated economic growth. A road map to facilitate development and diffusion of these technologies in Nigeria was clearly articulated. With appropriate Government policies, support from all stake holders and the will to stick to the implementation plans, in place, sustenance of achieved development and economic growth will be guaranteed.
