Mr. Yiming Zhu was appointed Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of CXMT in July 2018.
Prior to joining CXMT, Mr. Zhu was engaged in memory design in the U.S. In 2005, he returned to China and founded GigaDevice Semiconductor Inc., which soon became a leading player in the global NOR Flash market. He brought innovative minds and passion to the company to develop products for smart applications.
Mr. Zhu has participated in significant R&D projects in China and has filed about 80 international and domestic patents. He also has won numerous honors and awards, including “Innovator of the Year” by Global Sources and the “IC Design Leader of the Year in China” by China Semiconductor Industry Association IC Design Branch both in 2013.
Mr. Zhu received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Tsinghua University, and another master’s degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
The information society is supported by data and computing power. The development of communications, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and blockchain — and the convergence of new technologies — have created a growing demand for memory chips. The market needs more production capacity. CXMT has always considered responding to market expectations and meeting customer needs as its priorities.
In 2019, CXMT began to produce 8Gb DDR4, a mainstream product in the global industry. This marked a milestone in its development.
CXMT has expanded its core semiconductor technologies and high value Intellectual Property (IP) assets. The company has consistently built on its technology and IP system through independent R&D efforts and cooperation with global partners.
CXMT has developed its own technology system thanks to its purchase of Qimonda’s technologies, CXMT enterprise, patent acquisitions, licensing agreements and ongoing internal R&D efforts.
CXMT is actively stepping into the global semiconductor ecosystem. It is a member of the Global Semiconductor Alliance Board of Directors.
CXMT is leveraging the vast Chinese semiconductor ecosystem to deliver valuable and trustworthy products and services to meet the diverse needs of global customers.
CXMT will continue to strive to be a technology leader and a commercial success.
Chairman and CEO of CXMT
