Northern China's Tianjin encourages local entities to carry out research on IC technology for the post-Moore era to break through core technologies and improve the capabilities of IC raw materials, equipment production, design and manufacturing, and testing and packaging.
The Tianjin government on Monday released a plan to accelerate digital development from 2021-2023, saying it will accelerate research and development of industrial software and control software for design and manufacturing, and reach RMB 260 billion in software and information technology services by 2023.
The city will implement projects including SMIC advanced process chip, Phytium headquarters, and Huanou Semiconductor intelligent slicing, and the scale of the electronic information industry will reach RMB 240 billion by 2023.
To strengthen the research and development of core technologies, Tianjin will develop a list of three types of technological breakthroughs to fill the gaps in the R&D field and create a secure and independent technology system.
Tianjin will support the R&D and application of technologies including integrated chip for perception and computing, 5G RF front-end module, blockchain technology and support system, and quantum technology.
The city will support enterprise leaders to form innovation consortia, promote breakthroughs in core technologies, promote open-source projects and open source community construction, and strengthen the application of open source technology results.
Tianjin will layout blockchain, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, robotics and other industries, and promote the development of applicable technologies for artificial intelligence, 5G, big data and the edge computing industry.
The city will build an industry chain led by Phytium, Kirin and supercomputing centers, covering core hardware, basic software, arithmetic support, scenario applications and key supporting facilities.
