On the first day of Lunar New Year, employees of Qualchip Technologies, Inc. (Qualchip for short) were busy with their work in the design office to catch up the R&D process of a chip project. Qualchip is a dedicated design service company providing high-end SoC solutions and turnkey services to the customers, with its headquarter located on the 17th floor, Building A1, National (Wuxi) IC Design Industrial Park near Lihu Lake.
As an IC R&D and production company, Qualchip, based on the heterogeneous multi-core platform technology, its chip design covers communication solutions, high-performance computing, AI, multimedia audio and video processing, IoT application and other fields. According to Gu Jianyu, General Manager of Qualchip, although the company performance was influenced by COVID-19 in 2020, their efforts to help customers speed up R&D on replacing overseas chips with local chips have never stopped.
