National “Core Fire” Dual-Creation Platform Base to Build in Zhangjiang

Shanghai Cantor, Shanghai ICC, SITRI Group and Nanjing Bank (Shanghai Branch) signed collaboration agreement to build national “core fire” dual-creation platform base in the core area of Shanghai Zhangjiang Science City.

The base mainly builds on the functions of the two major platforms: the professional technical service function platform is based on the existing technical facilities, technical teams and professional resources of ICC and ITRI, and provides systems, integration, and professional technical service support. ICC focuses on support issues including tape support, EDA tools, IP support, and IC design back-end services; ITRI focuses on electronic product system analysis, process analysis, circuit analysis, MEMS wafer and finished product testing and analysis, and IC wafer and end product test and analysis, to help startups develop industry-university-research cooperation.

Following construction completion, within about three years, the base plans to gather and cultivate 50 innovative and innovative enterprises in semiconductors and their application fields.
