China lacks a chip ecosystem

Written by Nick Farrell



Big market but weak

The brains behind China’s Loongson microprocessor, Hu Weiwu, told a conference in Suzhou, ChinaChina needs an ecosystem to support IoT. He said that the IT industry of China is big but very weak and the $1.6trn IT industry revenue only produces three to five per cent profit.

China needs to build an ecosystem around its own unified technology platform and commercial ecosystem, Hu said. ARM’s Nandan Nayampally, told the conference that enabling ecosystems that drive innovation was a critical part of ARM’s success. 

Nayampally pointed out: “8.7 billion ARM processors were shipped in 2012. As sensors will be pervasive in the new era, it is estimated the cumulative shipment of ARM processors will reach 150 billion by 2020. We are just at the beginning of the revolution.”
