Besides, more than 20 Chinese chip companies such as SMIC, Huawei recently launched “the alliance of China high-end IC”, the development of China IC industry seems to have taken shape, which repeatedly shows the big era of China IC nationalization is about to open and speed up the demands of verification and certification.
