(hereinafter referred to as "Guowei Group") and Xi'an University of Electronic Technology (hereinafter referred to as "Xidian") Held the opening ceremony and expert report meeting of Xidian Guowei EDA Research Institute. Xidian Yang Zongkai, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Hao Yue, Director of Microelectronics Institute of Tsinghua University, Wei Shaojun, Deputy Secretary of the Xidian Party Committee, Yang Yintang, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Guowei Group, Huang Xueliang, President Shuai Hongyu, and President of Shenzhen Hongxin Weiner Co., Ltd. Huang Xiaoli attended the ceremony and witnessed The establishment of Xidian Guowei EDA Research Institute was officially established.
In his speech, President Xi Zongkai expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Guowei Group and Professor Wei Shaojun, who have long been concerned about and supported the development of Xidian. He said that the semiconductor industry with integrated circuits as the core is the foundation of the information technology industry, and it is a strategic, basic and leading industry that supports economic and social development and safeguards national security. The Institute is based on the superior discipline of Xidian, and is oriented towards the strategic needs of the country and the important strategic cooperation of the world's science and technology frontiers. It is hoped that the Institute will maximize and bring into play the advantages and strengths of universities and enterprises, and build a world-class microelectronics core technology research and development platform and high-level talent training base.
Zhang Yuming, Dean of the School of Microelectronics, introduced the preparation and construction of the Institute and talked about the research ideas and expected results. He hopes that the Institute will focus on the key research, combine computer software, mathematics and other disciplines with the support of a good academic support and a strong platform. It will soon become a national engineering center (joint), a school-enterprise talent training base, and a key laboratory of the Ministry of Education.
Mr. Huang Xueliang, Chairman of Guowei Group, said in his speech that he is very honored to return to his alma mater to witness the establishment of the Institute and to talk about his work in the semiconductor-related field for decades after he graduated from Xidian.
