Last week in China, several advanced manufacturing and semiconductor projects were signed in Hunan province, and a 24.8 billion yuan project was signed in Anhui province. Read on for more information about those projects and more semiconductor news from China last week.

Several Manufacturing Projects Signed in Hunan Province

The signing ceremony for a manufacturing project involving SiC wafers, simple carbon crystals and room temperature superconducting materials was held in Huaihua High-Tech Zone, Hunan province on Aug. 9. Shenzhen Aiweisi Intelligent High-tech Co., Ltd. made a total investment of 300 million yuan in the project, which will be built in two phases.

The first phase of investment is expected to total 100 million yuan, which will be used to build SiC wafer production lines with an annual capacity of 5,000 pieces, simple carbon crystal nano-powder with an annual capacity of 30,000 tons and 5 tons of copper-based carbon compound materials. The second phase will expand the production scale with additional investment of 200 million yuan.

Established in 2016, Shenzhen Aiweisi Intelligent High-tech Co., Ltd. is engaged in the development and sales of smart digital control software and smart robots, providing one-stop solutions for smart homes and smart factories.

Amer Group and Dalian Jinpu New Area to Jointly Build Third-Generation Semiconductor Industrial Base Project.

Jinpu New Area and Amer Group recently signed a strategic collaboration agreement with a total investment of 30 billion yuan. The two companies will collaborate in areas such as semiconductors, new materials and logistics.

According to the agreement, the two sides will jointly build a third-generation semiconductor industrial base with gallium nitride semiconductors as its core, then extending downstream to build a new industrial 5G material base with raw copper, and also building commodity trading platforms for metals and new materials.

Amer Group is a high-technology industry group that has developed from the industrial economy and mainly focuses on the entire industry chain of new electronic information and new materials.
