Chengdu Gexin factory, which has been stranded for more than two years, officially announced its closure in May this year for more than four months. Finally, Chengdu gaozhen Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “gaozhen technology”) has finally ushered in the takeover, and is expected to transfer to DRAM memory chips. According to the data of enterprise investigation, gaozhen technology was established on September 28, 2020, with a registered capital of 5.109.1 billion yuan. Business scope includes: < / P > < p > “sales: electronic components, integrated circuits, integrated circuit chips and products, electronic products, mechanical equipment, computers, software and hardware and auxiliary equipment; technical development of memory and related products and electronic information; electronic components manufacturing; integrated circuit manufacturing; software development; quality inspection technical services (excluding import and export commodity inspection) Items specially stipulated by the state, such as certification body, non-destructive inspection of civil nuclear safety equipment, inspection and testing of special equipment, testing services (excluding licensed business items), import and export of goods (except those prohibited by the state or involving administrative approval), integrated circuit design, etc. < p > < p > from the perspective of equity structure, the actual controlling shareholder of gaozhen technology is the finance and Finance Bureau of Chengdu high tech Industrial Development Zone, with a shareholding ratio of 60%, and the other major shareholder is Zhenxin (Beijing) Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Zhenxin semiconductor”) holding 40%. True core semiconductor is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hong Kong Hongxin Technology Service Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Hong Kong Hongxin”). < p > < p > according to the data, Cui Zhenji once worked in the semiconductor department as a senior engineer. At the beginning of this century, when SK Hynix was on the verge of bankruptcy and was almost acquired by Meguiar, SK Hynix took over. Through technological innovation, the technical team under Cui Zhenjie has improved the company’s R & D capability to the same level as Samsung in less than two years, and even there have been rumors about sk Hynix’s product cost is lower than that of Samsung, and the rapid development of technology has brought SK Hynix back to life. < p > < p > it is reported that Cui Zhenji once served as vice president of SK Hynix, and finally left Hynix because he failed to be elected CEO. The industry believes that it is one of only two Korean veterans who can have full semiconductor field experience from R & D to mass production. < p > < p > according to the company’s investigation data, truchip semiconductor, CEO of Cui Zhenji, was established on November 4, 2019, with a registered capital of 50 million yuan and 171 employees paying social security. At the same time, we have applied for 43 patents in less than one year since its establishment, most of which involve DRAM and other semiconductor manufacturing, as well as various semiconductor equipment materials. Moreover, all the technologies are developed in cooperation with the Institute of microelectronics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. According to the report of jimicrogrid, there are 230 core technicians in core semiconductor. In addition to Cui Zhenju, there are two senior generals, SK Han and YH Koh, serving as coo and CTO respectively. According to the sources in the industry, gaozhen technology, which is a joint venture between Zhenxin semiconductor and Chengdu government, will take over the factory building invested by Chengdu municipal government for Gexin Chengdu factory, which will build DRAM production line on this basis. < / P > < p > data shows that on May 31, 2016, global foundries signed a memorandum of understanding with Chongqing Municipality to establish a joint venture with Chongqing municipal government to build a new 12 inch wafer plant in China. After that, the cooperation between the two sides broke down and the partner changed to Chengdu. < / P > < p > in May 2017, lattice core announced the construction of a 12 inch wafer plant in Chengdu, with an estimated investment of more than US $10 billion, making it the first 12 inch wafer production line in Southwest China. Chengdu wafer factory is divided into two phases. The first phase is mature process (180nm / 130nm). It is expected to be put into production by the end of 2018. The second phase is 22fdx fd-soi process. It is expected to be put into production in the fourth quarter of 2019. The products are widely used in mobile terminals, Internet of things, intelligent devices, automotive electronics and other fields. < / P > < p > in June 2018, lattice core began to lay off employees around the world, and the recruitment of Chengdu factory was suspended. In August of the same year, lattice core announced the suspension of the development of advanced processes of 7 nm and below. < / P > < p > in October 2018, lattice core announced that it had signed an amendment to the investment cooperation agreement with its Chengdu partners, canceling the investment in the phase I mature process (180nm / 130nm) project of Chengdu wafer plant. This also means that the grid core Chengdu project is officially grounded. < p > < p > in February 2019, it was reported in the industry that the grid core Chengdu plant had been suspended, and the internal equipment had been cleared. The requirement for employees to leave their jobs had changed from “need to return training fees” to “no need to return training fees”, just as employees were encouraged to leave in disguise. In mid May 2020, Gexin Chengdu plant issued three notices on human resource optimization policy, shutdown and business suspension. In the notice, Chengdu Gexin said that “in view of the current situation of the company’s operation, the company will officially stop work and suspend business from the date of the issuance of this notice”. < / P > < p > according to the stock ownership data, the majority shareholder of Gexin (Chengdu) integrated circuit manufacturing Co., Ltd. is still global foundries, holding 51%, while Chengdu Advanced Manufacturing Industry Investment Co., Ltd., a joint venture of Chengdu SASAC and ICBC, holds 49%. < / P > < p > it is not clear in what form gaozhen technology will take over the shares held by global foundries, or will Chengdu government inject relevant assets into gaozhen technology after real-time bankruptcy and liquidation of grid core (Chengdu) integrated circuit manufacturing Co., Ltd? In addition, how to carry out DRAM manufacturing business, product planning and capacity planning, how to solve the problem of core technology patent source, and how to balance the competition with Changxin storage and Ziguang group DRAM business are still to be solved. Therefore, the specific way remains to be observed. Spontaneous combustion at a Guangzhou Motor vehicle intersection and other traffic lights in Shenzhen
