On the morning of December 3, at the project site of SMIC semiconductor (Yizheng) Co., Ltd. in Yizheng Economic Development Zone, workers were operating cranes and heavy trucks to seize the time for infrastructure construction. The total investment of the project is 99.79 million US dollars, and the design and production capacity is 1.2 million pieces / year. It is mainly engaged in the R & D, manufacturing and sales of 5-inch, 6-inch and 8-inch semiconductor chips. Up to now, the main plant construction of the first phase of the project has come to an end, and some equipment has entered the site. It is planned to install and debug equipment in the first half of next year“ In order to seize the construction period, we have rented a factory building, opened a packaging production line, and imported all semiconductor production equipment from Japan. After the whole project is put into operation, there will be more than 1000 high-end manufacturing equipment. By then, we will become a big semiconductor chip manufacturer in Yizheng City. " Said Yang Changhua, head of SMIC.
Semiconductor chip industry is an extremely important strategic industry in the development of national economy, which is widely used in public facilities and military equipment in information security, computer, mobile phone, water conservancy, electric power and other fields. Compared with the huge demand of the domestic market, the volume of domestic semiconductor chips is still small. At present, the semiconductor chips used by domestic enterprises mainly rely on imports, and the key core technologies are completely monopolized by large foreign companies.
SMIC semiconductor (Yizheng) Co., Ltd. is a Sino Japanese joint venture high-tech enterprise specialized in semiconductor chip manufacturing, chip packaging, semiconductor equipment transformation, covering a number of industrial chains. The equipment hardware mainly includes large beam ion implanter, submicron stepper lithography, plasmon etcher and other modern semiconductor chip production equipment. The company pays attention to the integration of production and research. In order to set up an industry benchmark, the company has set up an equipment technology team and production team composed of more than 20 domestic senior researchers. At the same time, it has also hired a number of foreign experts from Japan and South Korea to continuously increase the research and development of new products. At present, the new RF circuit products independently developed by the company have successfully completed the basic design, The main technical indexes have reached the advanced level of similar products in the world.
