People’s Daily Online, Haikou, October 28 (Li Xueshan) On October 28, the first Nandujiang Smart Medical and Rehabilitation Industry Summit Forum hosted by the Haikou National High-tech Industrial Development Zone Management Committee and VeriSilicon (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. Held in Haikou. Liu Liwu, deputy mayor of Haikou City, said at the forum that Haikou has listed the chip design industry as the core content of building an international design island, focusing on planning the chip R&D and design industry. By introducing large projects, building large platforms, and planning large projects, breakthroughs have been made The layout of the chip design industry, supporting the development of high-end packaging and testing industry, and accelerating the cultivation of the chip distribution industry. At present, the chip application ecosystem has been gradually built, injecting strong impetus into the high-quality development of the big health industry.

Liu Liwu believes that Haikou has three advantages in developing chip design and the big health industry. First, it has unique resource endowments. Haikou is the central city of Hainan Free Trade Port. The air quality ranks first in the country all the year round, and the green coverage rate is 43.5%. It has been selected by the World Health Organization as China’s first “World Health City” pilot site. Our rich coastal zones, forests, and medical hot mineral spring resources can meet the health needs of rehabilitation, health care, and recuperation. With strong policy support, distinctive location features, rich resource endowments, and first-class ecological environment, the development of the big health industry has unparalleled advantages.

The second is industrial support with a complete chain. Chips are an indispensable part of medical equipment and a technological fortress that the high-end medical industry needs to overcome urgently. Realizing the independent research and development of medical chips is an important way to ensure the security of the industrial chain and promote industrial upgrading and development. Haikou Medicine Valley ranks 29th in the national biomedical industrial park, and has become a beautiful business card in Hainan Province. Haikou introduced the Hainan Hangxin semiconductor project with a total investment of 5.1 billion yuan and a total investment of 13.7 billion yuan, focusing on the development of semiconductor power modules, chip packaging and testing, and promoting the implementation of gallium nitride IDM projects, silicon carbide IDM projects and other projects, demonstrating leadership from policy Guidance, technology research and development, platform construction and other aspects will promote the chip industry to supplement the chain, strengthen the chain and extend the chain, and provide strong support for the rapid development of the smart medical and rehabilitation industry.

The third is a fertile ground for development with design empowerment. Haikou regards the chip design industry as the core content of building an international design island, and focuses on planning the chip R&D and design industry. By introducing large projects, building large platforms, and planning large projects, it will make breakthroughs in the layout of the chip design industry, support the development of high-end packaging and testing industries, and accelerate the cultivation of chips. distribution industry. Haikou and VeriSilicon have jointly built Hainan’s “chip design street” and a pan-integrated circuit design characteristic industrial park. Many well-known chip design companies have settled in the cluster, and accelerated the promotion of a number of “chips” such as VeriSilicon Hainan IC Design and R&D Center. The project, the integrated circuit public service platform is about to settle in the park, the establishment of integrated circuit funds is being accelerated, the College of Integrated Circuits of Hainan University is also under preparation, and the chip application ecosystem has been gradually built, injecting strong impetus into the high-quality development of the big health industry.

“We will do our best to provide guarantee and services for everyone, and look forward to all the guests around the theme of the forum to jointly create more business opportunities for the development of the chip health industry, gather wisdom and strength, and ignite the Hainan Free Trade Port to develop the chip and health industry. The fire of a prairie fire.” Liu Liwu said.
