The smart TV SoC acquisition project led by Linxin Investment -- "V-Silicon Semiconductor (Hefei) Co., LTD." was recently landed in Hefei, which is an important layout of Linxin Investment in the smart TV SoC field.
V-Silicon Semiconductor, jointly established by V-silicon, Hefei High Investment and Linxin Investment, will rely on V-Silicon's world-leading smart TV SoC products and technologies, combine with China's 4K UHD industry development opportunities, actively develop China's high-definition audio&video market, and lead the technological progress of China's smart TV SoC.
On March 1, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the State Administration of Radio and Television, and the Central Radio and Television Administration jointly issued the "Action Plan for the Development of Ultra HD Video Industry (2019-2022)" (the "Action Plan"), which will clearly follow the general technical route of "4K first, taking into account 8K The Action Plan will be issued in accordance with the overall technical route of "4K first, taking into account 8K", and will vigorously promote the development of ultra-high-definition video industry and its application in related fields. The Action Plan proposes that in 2022, the overall size of China's ultra-high-definition video industry exceeds 4 trillion yuan, the 4K industrial ecosystem is basically perfect, 8K key technology product development and industrialization breakthroughs, the formation of a number of internationally competitive enterprises.
The first key task in the Action Plan is "breakthrough in core key devices", which clearly puts forward "insisting on the whole machine, breakthrough in ultra-high-definition imaging, high-bandwidth real-time transmission, ultra-high-speed storage, HDR display compatibility and dynamic adaptation, three-dimensional sound codec and rendering, three-dimensional sound acquisition, video Face recognition, dynamic behavior analysis, medical image diagnosis and other key technologies to support the development and mass production of SoC core chips, audio and video processing chips, codec chips, storage chips, image sensors, new display devices, etc. for ultra-high-definition video. Strengthen the innovation of 4K/8K display panels and develop key supporting devices such as high precision optical lenses."
Mr. Li Yajun, Chairman of Linxin Investment, said that the landing of V-Silicon is another major overseas M&A project completed by Linxin Investment team after Montage Technology, and its innovative M&A model has great significance for overseas M&A of ICs under the current economic and trade disputes between China and the US.
Hefei high-tech zone leaders said, "V-Silicon" in Hefei, will fill the long-standing lack of high-end TV SoC in China's blank, to promote the national "ultra-high-definition video industry development plan" plays a major role, will strongly promote the establishment and development of the national HD video industry base in Hefei.
