This is the official account of Southeast University (SEU). Striving for Perfection.
On the morning of Sep. 16,
The Innovation Center for IC Design Automation Technology,
As constructed under the joint efforts of Southeast University and Nanjing Jiangbei New Area
Was inaugurated at Jiangbei New Area.
Let's check it out together.
Zuo Wei, Secretary of CPC Southeast University Party Committee, Luo Qun, Member of the Standing Committee of CPC Nanjing Municipal Party Committee and Dedicated Vice Secretary of the Party Working Committee of Jiangbei New Area, Jing Mao, Class II Inspector of Jiangsu Provincial Science and Technology Department, Ding Hui, Vice President of Southeast University, Zhou Wenhai, Class II Inspector of Nanjing Science and Technology Bureau, Shi Longxing, Chief Professor of Southeast University and Director of Nanjing Integrated Circuit Industry Service Center and other leaders from Southeast University, National ASIC Center, Jiangbei New Area and other institutes and departments attended the event. Zuo Wei, Luo Qun, Jing Mao, Zhou Wenhai and Shi Longxing jointly unveiled the Innovation Center for IC Design Automation Technology. Prof. Yang Jun, Director of SEU National ASIC Center, introduced the preparations for the innovation center.
Ding Hui said that generations of professors and scientific research talents have been persisting in the philosophy of being renowned by science and serving the country with talents since Southeast University was established 118 years ago. Considering the intense competition in the international science and technology field this year, SEU is willing to work with Jiangbei New Area to jointly shoulder the heavy mission of technological innovation and breakthroughs in EDA (Electronic Design Automation) in the national integrated circuit industry. The key to the success of technological innovation lies in the innovation of mechanism and system. The innovation center will gather the power of enterprises and talents across the country to realize the independent development of our own EDA.
Luo Qun said that General Secretary Xi Jinping, when talking about industrial development at the Yangtze River Delta Integration Symposium, firstly mentioned the integrated circuit industry, emphasizing that the integrated circuit industry has become a strategic, leading and foundational industry that would matter the high-quality development of China's economy. At present, over 400 integrated circuit enterprises have been clustered at Jiangbei New Area with the output value of integrated circuits expected to reach RMB 50 billion this year. In terms of the EDA layout, Jiangbei New Area has gathered such domestic enterprises as Empyrean, AWP and X-EPIC, etc. which have attracted outstanding design talents to gather here, laying the foundation for the subsequent development and innovation of integrated circuits. The establishment of the center today marks a new level achieved by Jiangbei New Aera in the field of EDA.
It is reported that the integrated circuit is the core of the electronic information industry, the strategic, foundational, and leading industrythat supports economic and social development and guarantees national security.And EDA is the foundation and "bottleneck" problem in integrated circuit field. In today's EDA industry environment, domestic EDA products feature incomplete coverage and relatively weak technology accumulation. Besides, the industry is also confronted with problems in terms of personnel cultivation, market models, technological level and capital operation, etc. In order to rapidly develop EDA in China, the Innovation Center for IC Design Automation Technology came into being.
The innovation center was constructed under the joint efforts of Southeast University and Nanjing Jiangbei New Area. It is composed of domestic backbone enterprises and universities in the field of EDA as the alliance members. The center will focus on the issues confronted by the domestic EDA industry and collaborate with the leading enterprises in the industry and top innovative forces to promote innovation and application of key technologies in the EDA industry competition, so as to create a comprehensive industrial and technological innovation platform highlighting agglomeration of innovative resources, open operation of organizations and diversified governance structures.
