The significance of developing a memory chip is not only in its function and function, but also at least three important significance in developing the memory chip industry.
First, reduce costs and increase market share
Second, master the core technology, no longer subject to people
Third, to help rise and enhance the right to speak internationally
In recent years, with the efforts of the government and enterprises, the market for memory chips has shown a steady and rising situation. According to the data of the General Administration of Customs, in the first quarter of 2017, the import value of chips was 50.516 billion US dollars, up 7.62% year-on-year. Increase R&D and construction, and promote the mass production of memory chips, represented by Yangtze River Storage, Jinhua, Changxin, etc.
It is reported that not long ago, the Yangtze River storage of 3D NAND flash memory has received the first order, a total of 10,776 chips, will be used for 8GB USD memory card products; next year, Yangtze River storage will also start 64-layer stacked flash memory. In January of this year, the first phase of DRAM plant construction was completed, and equipment installation began. At the end of the year, 8GB DDR4 engineering samples will be produced. It is expected to achieve 20,000 wafers per month by the end of 2019. In April of this year, the integrated circuit memory production line project held a steel structure hoisting ceremony.
