Semiconductor Cluster in Yiwu
发布日期:2021-08-31 浏览次数:

On August 23, according to the development headquarters of Yiwu Economic Development Zone, the Yiwu Microchip Industrial Park has been officially put into use, and four semiconductor companies have already entered the park.

With the advent of 5G networks and Internet of things technologies, microchip production capacity must increase to meet the growing demand, which will lead to the localization of the microchip industry. In recent years, the Economic and Technological Development Zone has been attracting microchip companies, focusing on building an industry chain. Now, a microchip cluster will finally be constructed in Yiwu. Industries such as semiconductor materials, equipment manufacturing, packaging, and testing will be introduced to develop the companies and lay a solid foundation for cultivating and expanding Yiwu’s microchip industry.

The Yiwu Microchip Industrial Park has everything: scientific research buildings, factory buildings, administrative buildings, and dormitory buildings. According to the director of the development headquarters of the Economic and Technological Development Zone, the Yiwu Microchip Industrial Park covers an area of about 26,000 square meters, and the total construction area covers over 58,000 sq. m. It contains various R&D areas for product testing, IC design, code development, and integrates basic supporting facilities such as meeting rooms, canteens, and book cafes. The overall layout considers not only the R&D process—creating research and development spaces such as product research and development—but also the office work and life needs of employees in the microchip factory,. 

In the manufacturing plant of the industrial park, the construction workers were installing the fence and air-conditioning pipes. “This is our SMT (surface mount technology) workshop, testing workshop, and exhibition hall. We plan to finish the decoration work before the end of August, and the equipment will be commissioned in September. Before the end of September, the whole manufacturing plant will be put into production,” said Shi Wen, head of Naxin Semiconductor Technology (Zhejiang) Co., Ltd. Yiwu is committed to building a semiconductor industry chain, and numerous companies of the industry chain have settled in Yiwu, which promotes Yiwu’s semiconductor industry agglomeration.

“The four semiconductor companies introduced in the park, namely iTest Semiconductor, RiTest Semiconductor, Naxin Semiconductor, and Xiner Semiconductor, will have received a total investment of 1 billion RMB by the end of next year. The park will become a ‘dream factory’ for them to realize the transition from microchip park to microchip town,” said the director of the development headquarters of the Economic Development Zone.

Last month, Yiwu signed six microchip semiconductor projects, and plans to establish a semiconductor industry fund of 10 billion RMB. A microchip town will be built to push the semiconductor industry into the leading position of the country. (By Wang Ting, translated by Wei Han, edited by Kendra Fiddler)
