Building on the past and continuing the past, making new contributions to the integrated development of the integrated circuit industry
Recently, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council issued the Outline of the Yangtze River Delta Regional Integration Development Plan (2019-2025), which is a programmatic document guiding the current and future integration development of the Yangtze River Delta region. The "Outline" proposes to jointly promote the high-quality development of the manufacturing industry. Formulate and implement a coordinated development plan for the manufacturing industry in the Yangtze River Delta, comprehensively improve the development level of the manufacturing industry, and build a national advanced manufacturing industry cluster in accordance with the direction of cluster development. Focus on the ten key areas such as integrated circuits, accelerate the development of the integrated circuit industry chain, and cultivate a group of leading enterprises with international competitiveness. The "Outline" points out the way and target requirements for the development of the integrated circuit industry for the industry in the Yangtze River Delta.
Wuxi City is the core city in the Yangtze River Delta region and is a major town in China's integrated circuit industry. The scale of Wuxi's integrated circuit industry has been at the forefront of the country for more than a decade. In 2018, the total sales of the integrated circuit industry in Wuxi reached 101.405 billion yuan, becoming the second region in China except Shanghai to exceed 100 billion yuan. In order to encourage and promote the industry of Wuxi integrated circuit industry to continue to increase the intensity of industrial development, improve the quality and speed of industrial development, industry associations in conjunction with the implementation of the spirit of the "Outline" in Wuxi area organized a series of related activities.
Review the development history of Wuxi integrated circuit industry. Dating back to forty years ago, in a situation where the country ’s economy was still difficult, during the “Sixth Five-Year Plan” period, the Party Central Committee and the State Council resolved to come up with a total budget of 276.6 million yuan (based on the official exchange rate announced in 1978 for 1.5771 yuan per US dollar). (Renminbi, approximately USD 175 million) The investment and construction of a color TV integrated circuit production line in Wuxi reflects the country's determination to develop the integrated circuit industry. With the full support of the leaders of the state ministries and commissions, Jiangsu Province, and Wuxi Municipal Government, the leaders and employees of the state-owned Jiangnan Radio Equipment Factory have not disappointed the expectations of the party and the country. The leadership team with Wang Hongjin as the director has a strong sense of competition and mission. Have the courage to undertake the heavy task of the "Sixth Five-Year" project, lead the entire plant's scientific and technological personnel and employees with self-improvement and selfless dedication, the courage to glorify the country, successfully completed the tasks assigned by the state ministries and commissions. This one ranges from silicon single crystal preparation to cutting and polishing epitaxial wafers; from mask manufacturing to CAD design and physical and chemical analysis; from chip manufacturing to packaging and testing; from complete power assurance to reliability failure analysis systems; from processes, processes to materials , Equipment; from product design to marketing; After the large-scale integrated circuit production line covering the entire industrial chain was completed and put into operation, production and sales maintained high growth for 4 consecutive years, and product output accounted for about 50% of the country's total integrated circuit output, meeting domestic demand. The demand for integrated circuit products in TV factories has been awarded by the Ministry of Electronics Industry.
Enlighten people in the integrated circuit industry. Under the conditions at the time, it was not easy to build such a large-scale integrated circuit production line, and the resistance and difficulties encountered were hard to imagine today. In order to make the production line builders sing and sing in the past to motivate today's industrial people to make new contributions to the development of the integrated circuit industry, the Jiangsu Semiconductor Industry Association specially compiled a "six-five-year plan" to create a core. At the launching ceremony of this book, Yu Jikang, then the director of the production line, the current vice president of the China Semiconductor Industry Association, and the executive vice chairman of the Jiangsu Semiconductor Industry Association, combined with the history and current status of industrial development, deeply affectionately. The enlightenment brought by the "Sixth Five-Year" integrated circuit production line construction project to the development of China's microelectronics industry is introduced. First, the development of the integrated circuit industry requires the state and governments at all levels to attach great importance to the integrated circuit industry as a national strategic industry. The second is that investment and construction must be driven by demand and market-oriented in order to realize the benefits of investment and construction. Third, leaders of integrated circuit companies must have a keen eye, sensitive wisdom, and agile thinking, be good at capturing good opportunities, make decisive decisions, lead the team to work hard, be creative, and become a leader or a giant in the professional field. Defeated. The fourth is to create a good ecological environment for talents, and to attract, gather, use, and educate talents with a broad mind and an inclusive mindset, so that talents can be gathered and the enterprise can grow.
Carrying on the past and continuing the past. The history of the success of the "Sixth Five-Year" integrated circuit production line construction project is recorded in the annals and recorded in the hearts of Wuxi Chuangxin people. Today, the development of the integrated circuit industry in Wuxi has entered a new historical stage, and industry associations invite experts and academicians to point out the direction of technological development. Xu Juyan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, combined with the current technological development direction of the electronic information industry in the historical transformation period, proposed to use architectural innovation to achieve breakthroughs in integrated circuit performance. In his congratulatory letter to the industry association, Mayor Huang Qin of Wuxi also proposed that Wuxi should continue to take the development of the integrated circuit industry as a focal point and a breakthrough in creating a new highland for the development of modern industries, and established a strong and strong IC industry cluster. target setting. Wuxi has unswervingly inherited the inherited genes of the integrated circuit industry, and there is every reason to believe that when major projects such as the Huahong (Wuxi) 12-inch integrated technology integrated circuit production line and the Central (Yixing) large silicon wafer production line started in the past two years After gradually being put into production, Wuxi will make new and greater contributions to the development of the integrated circuit industry in the Yangtze River Delta region.
