Ten new local innovative IC products recommended at the forum
The reporter learned that the 11th Songshan Lake China IC Innovation Summit Forum also introduced Jingwei Qili (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd. HME-P1P60: 60K mid-range high-performance domestic FPGA and its application, Pengkan Technology (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.’s VN1110/VN1810: a new generation of PonCAN industrial control network chip, Aixin Technology’s AX630A: a high-performance, low-power artificial intelligence vision processor chip, and Timeking Intelligent Technology (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.’s AT5050: RISC-V Ten new local innovative IC products including end-side smart vision chips based on the architecture.
According to reports, AIoT stands for AI+IoT, which is the integration of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things in practical applications. In recent years, with the development of artificial intelligence, the combination of each other has greatly improved the user experience. New technologies are leading our lives to upgrade from “Internet of Everything” to “Intelligent Connection of Everything”. It is estimated that the scale of China’s AIoT market will reach 654.8 billion yuan in 2021, and it is expected to continue to maintain rapid growth, with promising development prospects. The landing of AIoT technology has opened up new market demands, and local IC companies will usher in new development opportunities.
In addition, the roundtable session of this forum focused on the theme of “Next Generation Smart Phones-Development Opportunities and Challenges for Smart Wearable Devices”, and invited well-known investors and technical experts in the industry to conduct live debates, including Rockchip Microelectronics Co., Ltd. Chen Feng, Chief Marketing Officer, Sun Changxu, Senior Partner of Industrial Investment of Xiaomi Technology Co., Ltd., Sun Zhen, CEO of Shanghai Sirui Technology Co., Ltd., Tian Xuehong, Chief Technology Officer of Guangdong Dapu Communication Technology Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Shencong Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Co-founder People CEO Wu Gengyuan, Rokid Chief Scientist Zhou Jun, etc. Everyone deeply analyzed the challenges faced by the industry development, grasped the pulse of the industry, and gathered everyone’s wisdom through on-site discussions, voting and other links to discuss the development of the industry.
Songshan Lake will build an integrated circuit industry base
At the forum, Huang Jingquan, member of the Songshan Lake Management Committee, also stated that more than 100 outstanding entrepreneurs in the IC field gathered in the “2021 Songshan Lake China IC Innovation Summit Forum”, aiming to use the forum to appreciate excellent IC products and discuss together Songshan Lake attaches great importance to the industrial development plan, and looks forward to it. Huang Jingquan also promoted Songshan Lake’s investment environment at the conference. He said that Songshan Lake’s main advantages are embodied in “seven first-class”: first-class large scientific equipment clusters, first-class industrial chain supporting facilities, first-class comprehensive cost advantages, first-class platform carriers, first-class high-level universities, first-class talent teams, First-class comprehensive business environment.
Song Tao, a consultant to the Dongguan Municipal Government and chairman of the Dongguan Songshan Lake Integrated Circuit Service Center, revealed that Dongguan will invest 20 billion yuan to build a strategic emerging industry fund and deploy 7 strategic emerging industry bases. Among them, it will build a domestic competitive integrated circuit industry base, highlighting the application as the driving force, focusing on the implementation of the packaging and testing jump project, the chip manufacturing chain supplement project, and the chip design strong chain project to create a highland for the development of integrated circuits and chips!
The reporter learned that in July 2020, the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Science and Technology approved the approval of Dongguan Songshan Lake Science City and Shenzhen Guangming Science City to jointly build the Dawan District Comprehensive National Science Center pilot zone, which is also the fourth comprehensive national science center in the country. center. The Songshan Lake Science City will be built into an original innovation highland with global influence around the four major positionings of creating a major original innovation source, a pilot test verification and achievement transformation base, a Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao cooperative innovation community, and a comprehensive experimental zone for institutional innovation. The Songshan Lake Science City will rely on the spallation neutron source and other large devices and high-end innovative resources on a large platform to focus on breakthroughs in key core technologies in the fields of materials, information, and life, and focus on a new generation of information technology, integrated circuits, high-end equipment manufacturing, new materials, and new technologies. The 7 major industries of energy, artificial intelligence and biomedicine will build the core engine of advanced manufacturing in the Bay Area.
The terminal application market in Dongguan is huge, the market mechanism is relatively mature, and the industrial chain is complete. At present, the country is continuing to increase its support for the integrated circuit industry, and the industrial development environment is constantly improving. The emerging needs of 5G, artificial intelligence, intelligent networked vehicles, industrial Internet, ultra-high-definition video and other emerging needs have rapidly increased the demand for semiconductors and integrated circuits. All these provide good development opportunities for Dongguan to develop semiconductor and integrated circuit industries. The newly built Dongguan Songshan Lake Integrated Circuit Service Center and Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory will develop the Songshan Lake integrated circuit industry, open up the entire chain from cutting-edge innovation to industrialization, and promote the industrial chain to a high level and high value direction.
It is understood that the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Songshan Lake High-tech Zone has initially formed a good development trend of accelerating the accumulation of “five first-class” high-end innovation elements such as first-class platforms, first-class enterprises, first-class institutions, first-class universities, and first-class talents. The success of Songshan Lake is inseparable from the power of technological innovation. Whether it is the endogenous demand for industrial upgrading or the need for the transformation of scientific research results, it will drive Songshan Lake’s innovation to speed up again.
