In 1999, under the direct leadership of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (formerly the Ministry of Information Industry), with the strong support of the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Commerce, the Beijing Municipal People's Government and the Zhongguancun Administrative Committee, A number of Ph.D. entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley founded Zhongxing Microelectronics Co., Ltd. in Beijing Zhongguancun Science and Technology Park, launched and undertaken a national strategic project - "Starlight China Core Project", dedicated to the development, design and industrialization of digital multimedia chips.
In the past two decades, "Xingguang" digital multimedia chip products have been successfully introduced to the global market and are widely used in the fast-growing multimedia application fields such as personal computers, broadband, mobile communications and information appliances. The product sales have covered Europe, America, In 16 countries and regions including Japan and South Korea, customers include Sony, Samsung, HP, Philips, Fujitsu, Logitech, Huawei, Lenovo and other well-known domestic and foreign companies, occupying more than 60% of the global market share of computer image input chips, making For the first time, my country's integrated circuit chips have reached a global leading position in an important application field, completely ending the history of "China's chipless". In 2005, Sinostar Microelectronics was successfully listed on the Nasdaq stock market in the United States, becoming the first Chinese chip design company with independent intellectual property rights listed on Nasdaq. In addition, Zhongxing Microelectronics is also the support unit of China's "National Key Laboratory of Digital Multimedia Chip Technology", and has undertaken many major projects such as the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Information Industry, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the Ministry of Commerce. In response to the development needs of the national intelligent video safety net and the Internet of Things industry, Zhongxing Microelectronics has formulated the national standard for security video security digital audio and video codec (SVAC), which has contributed to the maintenance of national security and safe production, and has gone out of a China Unique high-tech development.
In early 2016, Zhongxingwei launched the world's first SVAC video codec SoC integrated with a neural network processor (NPU), which enables intelligent analysis results to be encoded simultaneously with video data to form a structured video stream. This technology is widely used in video security cameras, opening a new era of video security intelligence. The self-designed embedded neural network processor (NPU) adopts the "data-driven parallel computing" architecture, which is specially optimized for deep learning algorithms. It has the characteristics of high performance, low power consumption, high integration and small size, and is especially suitable for IoT front-end intelligence needs.
Zhongxing Microelectronics adheres to independent innovation, has broken through the fifteen core technologies successively, applied for more than 4,000 international and domestic patents, and won the first prize of the annual National Science and Technology Progress Award twice.
