A new IC production base is under construction in Wuxi, China
Recently, Huahong Group held a ceremony in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, for the smooth launch of the first lithography machine for its 12-inch IC production line project. With the first batch of lithography machines moved in, Huahong's 7th plant will smoothly enter the process equipment installation and commissioning stage. According to reports, the Huahong 7th plant is expected to be trial production in September and mass production in December.
It is reported that Huahong Group's total investment in semiconductor projects in Wuxi is 10 billion US dollars, of which the first phase investment is 2.5 billion US dollars. It will build a 12-inch special integrated circuit production line with a monthly capacity of 40,000 pieces, supporting emerging fields such as 5G and the Internet of Things. Applications. After the implementation of the first phase of the project, the construction of the second production line will be launched.
