Mr. Yang Yunchun expressed his warm welcome and gratitude to all the distinguished guests and friends for coming. He thanked the Beijing Municipal Development and Reform Commission and the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone for providing all-round policy support to the newly-built MEMS production line of Neville Technology from the preparation of the production line to the construction of the project. Thanks to the shareholder institutions Beijing Integrated Circuit Manufacturing and Equipment Equity Investment Fund and the National Integrated Circuit Industry Fund, from the start of overseas mergers and acquisitions to integration and participation in the MEMS industry, it has provided full support to Neville Technology at various levels such as strategy, resources and management. Thanks to Beijing Yizhuang International Investment and Development Co., Ltd. for its financing support to Celex Beijing during the construction of the project. Thanks to China Electronic System Engineering Fourth Construction Co., Ltd., the general contractor of the project, for its attention and resource guarantee to the project; thanks to the cooperation and hard work of the Swedish Silex team and the Sellex Beijing team, I hope the team can make persistent efforts to make the Beijing 8-inch MEMS production line reach the through-line production state as soon as possible.
Neville Technology takes sensing technology as the core and focuses on the layout of the Internet of Things industry chain to welcome the arrival of the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence era. Based on the judgment of the market demand prospect and the domestic industrial chain situation, after the wholly-owned acquisition of Sweden's Silex in 2016, Neville Technology actively introduced the National Integrated Circuit Industry Fund to digest and absorb international leading technologies through the independent establishment of domestic production lines. Through comparative research and development and production, it has cultivated a first-class comprehensive MEMS engineering team, built a global technology-leading MEMS production line and industrialization platform, and further established industry technical barriers, enhance the company's core competitiveness.
Sweden Silex was established in 2000. It has long focused on process development and wafer manufacturing of MEMS chips. It has the world's advanced pure MEMS foundry technology and expanding foundry capacity. Sweden Silex is a leading foundry manufacturer of MEMS chips (communications, biomedicine, industrial science, consumption, etc.) in the world. Since 2012, Sweden Silex has remained in the first echelon of MEMS wafer foundry in the world; in the 2018 ranking of global MEMS wafer manufacturers, Sweden Silex continues to rank second among pure manufacturers and fourth among manufacturers, and ranks among the top five in the world along with STMicroelectronics, TELEDYNE DALSA, SONY and TSMC.
Sweden Silex has mastered many process technologies and process modules with international leading competitiveness in the industry, such as through silicon hole, wafer bonding, deep reactive ion etching, etc. It has the most advanced through silicon hole insulation layer process platform (TSI) in the industry at present. It has more than 10 years of mass production history and has produced more than hundreds of thousands of wafers and more than 100 different products, the technology can be extended and transplanted to 2.5D and 3D wafer-level advanced packaging platforms. It has provided process development services for more than 400 MEMS chips for global manufacturers, and has produced a variety of MEMS products including micromirrors, microneedles, silicon photons, on-chip laboratories, microbolometers, oscillators, atomic clocks, ultrasound, pressure sensors, accelerometers, gyroscopes, silicon microphones, etc. for customers; sweden Silex currently has two mature operating, industry-leading 8-inch MEMS production lines in Sweden.
From North American science and technology capital to British academic center, from European manufacturing power to Asian emerging economy, from cutting-edge life science to daily entertainment consumption, from mature industry giants to innovative creative teams, Neville Technology has MEMS customers all over the world, and its products cover many fields such as communication, biological medicine, industrial science, consumer electronics, etc, customers have included global DNA/RNA sequencer giants, global new ultrasound equipment giants, global network communication and application giants, global infrared thermal imaging technology giants, global lithography machine giants, global network search engine giants, global consumer electronics giants, global industrial giants and leading enterprises in industrial and consumer segments.
Neville Technology has been working hard to promote the integration of its MEMS business resources, with Celex International coordinating the company's MEMS business resources. After the completion of the Beijing 8-inch MEMS international foundry line, Neville Technology will have advanced 8-inch MEMS production lines in Sweden and China at the same time, and the Beijing production line can provide standardized scale production capacity. It is conducive to the company's further expansion of the global market, especially in Asia, combining advanced technology and scale capacity to better serve downstream customers, while continuing to expand the competitive advantage of the company's MEMS business and maintaining its global leading position in the MEMS pure foundry field.
