The information society is supported by data and computing power. The development of communications, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, and blockchain, along with the continued 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 original aspiration.
In 2019, CXMT began to produce 10G1 8Gb DDR4, a mainstream product in the global industry. This makes a milestone in our development and means we have taken a critical step forward.
Since was established, CXMT has continuously worked to expand its core semiconductor technologies and high-value IP assets. The company consistently built upon its technology strategy and IP system through independent R&D efforts and cooperation with global partners. Based on the purchase of Qimonda know-how and the signings of relevant patent acquisition and license agreements, CXMT pursues rapid iterative development with a dedicated R&D line and significantly improves its technology through advanced equipment, developing its own distinctive technology system.
At the same time, CXMT is actively stepping into the global core semiconductor ecosystem. Our joining of the Board of Directors of the Global Semiconductor Alliance showed the industry’s respect for our achievements.
Globally, the Chinese market, known for the vigorous innovation and rich application scenarios, contains tremendous opportunities. With our proximity to this market, CXMT will leverage the huge Chinese ecosystem to deliver value-creating and trustworthy products and services to meet the diverse needs of global customers.
Going forward, CXMT will continue to practically and persistently work toward the goals of technology leadership and commercial success.
