The mother of chips EDA
In the current development of science and technology in the world , They all rely heavily on a small part , That's the chip . With the birth of more and more advanced electronic products , The importance of chips is self-evident , If there's a lack of chips , Then the development of global science and technology can be seriously paralyzed . And to make chips , So the first and most important step is chip design , The chip design depends on a kind of software , That's it EDA 了 , So EDA It's also called the mother of chips , So it's important .
But in 19 year , Our country EDA The software market is just 5.4 Billion dollars , As the lifeblood of chip production ,EDA It's an essential tool for chip design , It can be seen that the development of chip field in China is still relatively slow . At present in the world EDA In the market , It's basically being Candence、Synopsys、Mentor Graphics These three American giants are monopolizing . And our country EDA The total revenue of manufacturers only accounts for... Of the global market 0.6% nothing more , From this point of view, the gap is quite obvious .
Our country EDA present situation
Our current EDA The localization rate in this field is only about 10% about , Most of the market is in the hands of foreign capital , This is for the safety of China's domestic chips , It's a very big threat . So our country now EDA The industry is still facing a lot of difficulties , Like a shortage of talent , Not forming a whole chain , Technology is slow , Limited market growth and so on . And one of EDA The technical threshold of software is still very high , It's also one of the most difficult industrial software to conquer , This also makes domestic EDA The rise of the United States has brought great challenges .
At present in our country EDA Among manufacturers , Only Huada Jiutian has a complete set of tools for analog chips , Other manufacturers are just selling tools . Now domestic EDA There's no whole process product of digital chip , Only part of the tools have been developed , Make the competitiveness of products very limited . And at present domestic EDA We haven't conquered advanced technology yet , Still in the stage of focusing on mature technology . According to the current situation , domestic EDA It is very difficult for manufacturers to break the monopoly of foreign enterprises .
domestic EDA Hopeful
Although at present our country's EDA This is the case , But also full of hope . Now more and more enterprise chip design enterprises have realized that EDA The importance of control , This is equivalent to domestic EDA Enterprises bring opportunities . In addition, the country's attention to the chip industry has also greatly improved , We have also given a lot of support in many policy areas , This also gives China EDA Enterprises have increased a lot of confidence .
Under the stimulation of breaking through the monopoly of foreign capital , The capital market is also paying more and more attention to EDA The market , Now there are a lot of EDA Companies have raised money , This makes EDA The development of enterprises can be more guaranteed , At least don't worry about money for a while . Not long ago EDA Manufacturer xinhuazhang has won the super 4 One hundred million yuan Pre-B Round of funding , So far, the cumulative financing of xinhuazhang has reached 12 One hundred million yuan , This is very important for the new generation of xinhuazhang EDA The layout of technology will play a big role .
The founder of xinhuazhang is Wang Libin , Before Synopsys Served as vice president , Up to now, it has been EDA More than 20 year , With rich upstream and downstream experience and market relations , I see China in my eyes EDA After the opportunity , He decisively and immediately founded the xinhuazhang company . about EDA Wang has his own ideas , He chose some self-developed ones EDA Open source tools , Let the high threshold EDA Industries are easier to enter , In order to promote the prosperity of the chip industry . Open source EDA For China EDA Come on , There's more hope of breaking through . In this regard, some people in the industry believe that , Open source is made in China EDA A way to realize the whole digital process , This can solve the problem of talents in China at the source .
in my opinion
All along, the development of chip industry in China is still quite backward , And the chip source of our country mainly depends on foreign imports , This makes our country in a very passive situation in terms of chips . So in recent years, China is determined to vigorously develop domestic chips , To form a perfect ecological chain of chip production . This is undoubtedly a great challenge for our country , Don't look at the chip, it's just a small piece of stuff , But it takes a lot of processes to make it . The first is the design of the chip , As mentioned earlier, they are basically monopolized by foreign investment . And then there's lithography , A lithography machine is a machine that makes chips , You can't make a chip without a photoresist . At present, the most advanced lithography machine in the world is in the hands of the Dutch , But the Dutch will not sell it to our country .
At the end
So now our country is facing a lot of difficulties , After all, foreign countries must have adopted technological blockade against China , So it's up to us to explore . Fortunately, China is united in the field of chips , With a lot of help from the State , There are more and more chip companies also come forward , Like Huawei Hisilicon , smic , And today's introduction of xinhuazhang and so on . For the realization of domestic chips, the country also has a goal , It's to be in 25 Years of implementation 70% The chip self-sufficiency rate of , To achieve this goal , Obviously we have to work harder , But from a lot of recent good news about chips , Domestic core is just around the corner .
