Rollout of homegrown FGPA chips breaks monopoly

Updated 2017-10-31 14:31:57 Global Times

China has become the second country in the world to design and mass-produce a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) integrated circuit, breaking the U.S. monopoly in the area, Shenzhen-based news site sznews.com reported on Monday.

An FPGA is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by a customer or a designer after manufacturing, and is widely used in sectors including automotive electronics, telecommunications, defense, and the aerospace industry.

After three years of efforts, Guangdong Gowin Semiconductor Corp, a company in South China's Guangdong Province, debuted its FPGA chips at an exhibition in Shanghai last week.

Before the entry of Gowin, there were only three U.S. firms that were capable of the research and development and mass production of the chip.

So far, Gowin has rolled out 11 kinds of FPGA chips and has independent intellectual property rights over its products, said the report.
